In Tuckman’s stages of team development, the storming stage involves generating new ideas, brainstorming and navigating decisions as a team. This stage of team development can also often involve disagreement and conflict.
When working in teams, it’s natural for disagreement and conflict to appear from time to time. This can feel uncomfortable and awkward and create barriers for your team and individuals.
