This paper was written for ETM 522, Communications and Team Building at Portland State University in the Fall of 2010. Teams are built through the process of doing. They are built on individual skills, commitment and accountability. If these three foundations of a team are met, mutual trust can occur, which can lead to a true high performance.

This paper will discuss the development and interactions of Team Two, also known as the Downtown Team. It will explore the growth of Team Two by using a chronology of events in the life of the Team. The narrative will follow the Team through the four stages of team development: forming, storming, norming and performing [1, 3]. A discussion and analysis section will follow the narrative, followed by conclusions.
