Strategies for dealing with group conflict
Stages of team development
Identifying behaviors that enhance or hinder effectiveness
Any time a work group is formed, the individuals involved bring their own preconceived thoughts and beliefs to the table. Depending on the organization, there may be additional group dynamics at work such as norms and organizational culture. The size of the group, whether it is formal or informal, and the type of leadership also affect the group.
To facilitate efficiently, facilitators need to know enough about the group to guide and model effective processes.
