When the "Honeymoon" Ends

Soon after teams form, conflict erupts. The team's “honeymoon” phase ends and the “storming” phase begins. Team members often feel discouragement and frustration. Some members blame the leader when this is an inevitable stage that a developing team must go through.

What should you do when you reach this “storming” phase? Remain calm and encouraging. If you become angry and lose control, matters are sure to get worse. Instead, increase communication between team members. Remind yourself and your team that this is a usual phase of team development, and manage conflict to move through it efficiently.

     Seek to identify and remove any barriers to your team’s success.

     Consider whether members are in the right roles.

     Encourage members to move into the right roles, if need be, based on their strengths.
