P2 – Developing cohesive and high performing teams In this assignment I will explain how to build cohesive teams and how they can perform well and the actions to take place to move onto the next step. How to build cohesive teams that perform well The term ‘cohesive’ means coming and sticking together, while a team is a group of people who comes together for a purpose which normally is to all achieve the same goal. So a cohesive team means it is coming and sticking together with a group of people completing a target. To have an effective cohesive team you have to follow different steps in team building and monitoring team performance. Team Building Team building is important as it shows the success of an organisation. If an organisation employs the right staff, which the right types of skills needed then the team will be able to perform effectively together. Teamwork is more likely to be successful when it operates in a supportive environment. Team building starts with recruiting the right mixture or members for the group with then coaches, mentors and monitors to create a high performance team. Tuckmans’s Model Bruce Tuckman created the forming, storming, norming and performing development model in 1965. This development model shows people who maintained these phrases are all necessary and is more likely to happen in order for the team to grow, to face up challenges, tackle problems, find solutions and deliver results. Tuckman’s model explains that as a team develops ability, relationships, maturity and the leader ends up changing his leadership style. The forming, storming, norming and performing are the stages of what each team goes through. Forming As the group comes together individuals are gathering information and impressions about each other. When the team comes together for the first time they need to understand each other and set a mission.
