LESSON NOTES
============
Inclusion – to Anxiety
Dependent
• Team starts in a Honeymoon stage.
• The team members’ energies are directed inward, towards the themselves
• They are easy to manage because team members want to conform and fit in.
• Gradually, they start to feel anxiety about their ability (or willingness) to conform
• They are concerned about acceptance and rejection

Assertion – to Conformity
Independent
• That anxiety leads team members to articulate their own personality
• This shows their differences (which is positive), but also leads to tensions and conflict over place, power, and hierarchy
• The team members’ energies are directed inward, towards the team and competing among themselves
• Team members start to put up barriers around perceived territory among roles and resources
• This can be a highly creative time with a lot of emotional energy at play, making the team hard to manage
• Eventually, the team will start to negotiate around boundaries and come to a working agreement where they start again to conform

Co-operation – to Higher Performance
Interdependent
• With conformity comes co-operation.
• The team members’ energies are directed outwards, towards the team’s common goals
• The challenge for the leader is to channel the energy and keep the team stimulated with new challenges
• You want them to work effectively and efficiently, but to avoid falling into complacency
• If you can get that balance right and keep pushing, the team will achieve higher performance levels.
