Conceptual model, individual behaviors, team behaviors, morale
As the traditional forms of organization migrate to increasing use of team structures, the antecedents, consequences, and interaction between individual and team behaviors becomes more important. This research explores the concept of esprit de corps, attempts to provide a definition grounded in several diverse research streams, and suggests that esprit de corps serves as a bridge between individual and team behaviors. A conceptual model is provided and propositions for future research related to the model are discussed.
