Combination of Tannenbaum and Schmidt Continuum with Tuckman Stages
You can combine the Leadership Continuum with the Team Development Stages of Tuckman.
Plotting Tuckman's Team Building Stages
onto the Tannenbaum and Schmidt Continuum shows a collaboration between them.
- Forming stage of team, where authoritive style
is used = manager makes and announces decisions. Through to
- Performing stage of team, where transformational style
is used = manager allows full freedom.
I have used these two models combined to explain why management styles change (or should) over time.
