One question

Q: How do you improve team performance in a changing environment?

A: After a significant change (in membership, objectives, tasks, etc.), it takes time to connect and re-establish a productive team—and team performance is determined in large part by the quality of the relationships among the people involved. … The team change curve is about group dynamics: establishing roles and responsibilities, figuring out what people are doing, establishing and questioning leadership, and so on. The key is to manage the change curve for teams: orientation, exploration, aspiration, and integration.
