Here's another model which I present in my High Performance Teams course.

of "team ability". That ability will depend on how well the team contract
is developed; the skill level of the team; the skill level of the team
leader; the likelihood issues can be resolved; and team independence and
performance in general.
Here are five points on the continuum, corresponding in order from lower
team ability to high team ability:
4. Share Observations
5. Observe and Discuss later

instruction. Thank you, Julie.
