An introduction to what Team Spirit is and how you can grow it
When you want to strengthen your Team Spirit for a team, it all starts with perception of where are we at now? How is our Team Spirit in this moment? What can you describe?
Team Spirit is the combination of two powerful images and words: TEAM and SPIRIT.
Team is defined in various areas in life as a dedicated group that is aiming towards a collective goal or dream – for example a sports team that wants to win a championship and play well together.
Spirit is the expression of the Fire in us humans. It is our inner Fire that keeps us burning bright, allowing us to express our spirit force and bringing the light into our world.
Team Spirit is like a community fire we are starting and then need to care for as the team goes thru various weather, wind and challenges that sometimes absorbs our focus and energies elsewhere. Therefore becoming good firekeepers is a key skill for any teammember also in a self-organizing organization where everyone holds the rotating leadership role and needs to practice and pay attention to the team fire throughout the days.
Sitting around our team fire also requires every member of our team to share his or her learnings, and to speak our truth. That is no small thing and often in team this aspect gets forgotten for a while and needs to be fought for to re-establish again.
Team Spirit requires us to look into what agreements are needed with ourselves as individuals and among us as a team to keep this collective fire burning bright. An agreement is not a rule or a law. It is an agreement between human beings to support the bright fire and the team being able to live into its purpose and being on track with its goals.
In our working with teams we teach you how to use the 4 Pillars of Self-Organizing Teams and Organizations. Agreements is the first of these 4 Pillars.
