Team Building and Motivation

Abstract

The advantages of teams and their characteristics are described and tabulated. The well-known Tuckman team development stages of forming, storming, norming, performing and mourning are discussed, as are the nine Belbin characteristics required for building a balanced team. A diagram explains Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, and Herzberg’s motivational hygiene theory includes a list of the hygiene factors and motivators.
