Characteristics of Teamwork training course

This course discusses the stages of team development, the impact that norms, cohesiveness, and size has on teams, and how to deal with team conflict.  As a team grows and develops they will go through five distinct stages of development: forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning (or reforming).  During the first stages of development, teams will create their own informally agreed-upon standards that regulate team behavior, which leads to cohesiveness.  Both the size of the team and how they resolve conflict has an impact on overall team effectiveness.
