Groups that make it through stage 2 generally do so because a respected member other than the leader challenges the group to resolve its power struggles so something can be accomplished. Questions about authority are resolved through unemotional, matter-of-fact group discussion. A feeling of team spirit is experienced because members believe they have found their proper roles. This stage generally does not last long.
•Conflicts are resolved, close relationships develop, and unity and harmony emerge.
•“What do the others expect me to do?”
•“Can we agree on goals and work as a team?”
•In this stage, leaders should emphasize unity and help identify team goals and values.
