This Month's Model
The Team Evolution Curve
The Team Evolution Curve is an ideal activity to open up a discussion with the team about where they are now and what they need to do to evolve. It provides a useful platform for the team to plot their place on the curve at this point, discuss what keeps them there, and then decide what they have the potential to become, and what to concentrate on to move them to this place.
You can use this as part of your team coaching Scoping process – however the exercise is best done with established teams, where the participants know each other well.
The model is adapted from the Stages of Team Evolution (Katzenbach & Smith,1993), and includes a step-by-step guide for using it with your team.
