What is team spirit?
Team spirit is the most essential and promising element within a team. Only with the necessary sense of togetherness, intrinsic motivation, and the realization that only the different complementary skills of the individual team members lead to the goal, a team is a team and also feels as such.
Intrinsic motivation is a particularly important aspect. If each member is intrinsically interested in the success of the group, a high level of motivation, commitment and efficiency will prevail within the group.
The different skills of individual members are seen as an enrichment and only with the necessary team spirit, it is possible to compensate for deficits of individual team members. This even goes so far that teams with a strong team spirit are far more efficient in accomplishing individual tasks than a group with specialists.
