Importance of Team Spirit

By Martin Williams

Team spirit is part of many group endeavors, whether in a company, sports team or non-profit organization. A unified group often accomplishes more than a single person can.


Team spirit can be defined as when the members of a group want the team to succeed.


Cultivating team spirit helps improve the chemistry of a group and increase the probability of success for the team's endeavor.


Team spirit encompasses multiple characteristics, such as unity, teamwork, positive reinforcement, focus and a sense of urgency in obtaining a specific goal.


Team spirit is often perceived as not being cool or trendy. Yet some of the greatest group achievements could not have happened without team spirit and visible support. For example, when an entire community works to support a team, including wearing t-shirts and attending games, the team has a greater chance of winning a championship.


Team spirit improves the ability of individuals to work together and boosts morale.
