Performing stage

Team members feel connected and are comfortable with the project's progress. People offer each other feedback, and have a sense of their own (and each other's) abilities. 


People express positive feelings about the work and are able to address challenges with the team's project. Team roles may have become more fluid as the project needs evolve.

Team tasks

Team members are working effectively and the group makes significant progress towards its goals. The group's commitment to the project is high. 

Team members should:

  • Continue to build knowledge and refine skills.
  • Support team growth.
  • Acknowledge milestones.
  • Address concerns (which might mean moving back through the storming and norming stages).
