The principle work for the team during the forming stage is to address lots of questions from the team, reflecting both their excitement about the new team and their roles
During these stage the team comes up with clear structures, goals, directions and roles so that the participants begins to build trust. Also, during this phase, participants are trying to see how the team will respond to differences and how it will handle conflict.
