The group that I have the most productive experiences with are the teachers I work with now. We are a high performing group and have established norms within the classroom that allow for each teacher to give input and feel part of the class.
I believe if the educational coordinator split our team apart, we would be very sad because we have built a relationship that even the parents notice works well for their children.
Just as with my colleagues I physically work with, my “cyber” colleagues have become a big part of my learning experiences. It will be a sad, but satisfying time when we have all made it to the finish line of this program. I hope to be able to travel to the graduation to see all that will be in attendance.
I think the adjourning aspect of team building is essential because it gives everyone a chance to finalize the process and see it to the end.
