Essentially the writer of this paper believe that during the norming stage the behavior of the group members that was competitive during the storming stage have now changed to cooperation and relationship between members of the group (MindTools, 2010). Although, some problems do arise with the passage of time as the group was striving for the accomplishment of its goals and objectives, however it did not take long for the members of the group solve such problems. In addition, the writer of this paper believe that the criticism that was more personal and more on the cultural values of the group members during the storming stage have now converted to more constructive criticism that resulted in more positive outcomes not only for the different members of the group to solve different problems but also helped in better accomplishment of the group's goals and objectives (Gersick, 1988). Truly, every member members of the group was experiencing the team spirit and positive norms were evolving with the passage of time. The role of team leader was crucial at this stage as she provide constructive feedback to different members of the group. The feedback provided was more descriptive and to point. As sound communication channels were already developed within the group each members of the group carefully listen to the feedback and they were allowed to ask for the clarification (Jackson et al., 1994).
The stage that follows could be termed as performing, which may be referred to as the hallmark of the group development process. During this stage members of the team were having effective relationship with each other and the team was really experiencing the true synergy for which the team was formed (Bullinger et al., 1995). The major emphasize in this stage was on quality of work and the team leaders was doing really hard to utilize the full potential of the different members of the team. Although, in some cases this stage is reached in a very short period of time, however for the present team as it was composed of the diverse members it took some time to reach this stage. Each members of the group was fully aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the different members of the team and at this stage no conflicts were experienced (Bouncken & Winkler, 2008). All the members were now having a very close attachment with the team they were representing and were working with real motivation and spirit to accomplish the team's goals and objectives.
