3 Ways to Lead Your Team Through the Storm


When storms of disagreement rage on a team, feelings of frustration can quickly surface. Rather than shrinking away from conflict, encourage it. Remember that "storming" is an inevitable stage that all teams encounter. Healthy debate is necessary for a team to grow, find viable solutions to challenges and deliver exceptional results.


Here are 3 ways to help lead your team through the storm and help them get back on course:

  1. Break it Down. Break large goals down into smaller, achievable steps.
  2. Shake Things Up. Redefine roles and tasks. Help the team focus less on frustration and more on achieving the final goal.
  3. Celebrate Small Wins. Give recognition at appropriate milestones to keep momentum going and leverage the energy of the team.
