    Guest: Susan Gerke from GoTeam

    Susan and I discuss the issues at each stage above and the actions that both team members and leaders can take in order to maximize team performance.

    There are several options when conflict emerges:

    Reform the team
    Do good
    Feel good
    Deal with the conflict

    There are also several ways that change itself can happen to a team:

    Leadership changes
    Membership changes
    Changes to the purpose and goals of the team

    Question from Kris:

    I've been involved in in management position for the last 8 years. Now I have received a job proposal to work for another project in a much more advanced role. As you can understand I feel really flattered and at the same time a bit confused weather I am ready for this step up or not. Now my question is: What do I need to take in consideration, what can I do take my confusion away and what kind of training will assist me in my conquest to become a senior leader?
