Team Spirit

Did anyone else watching the Olympics and wonder why so much emotion was bubbling up? 


Team spirit is a truly wonderful thing. I’ve never thought of myself as particularly patriotic but I realise that at an unconscious level, I am part of a really big team, Team GB. And when Team GB wins or loses, I feel the emotional impact, just as I would with a member of my family team, or a team at work. Ever wondered why our unconscious minds drive us to belong or identify? 


If you are working with teams, then taking a look at the emotions you feel watching sport is a good place to start with team dynamics.
