The Incredible Importance of Team Morale

The Incredible Importance of Team Morale

"The most significant impact on a movie's budget - but never in the budget - is employee morale. If you have low morale, for every dollar you spend, you get about twenty-five cents of value. If you have high morale, for every dollar you spend you get about three dollars of value. Companies should be much more attention to morale."

- Brad Bird, Pixar, director of The Incredibles and Ratatouille

Marcial Losada has done extensive studies on the impact of positive and negative interactions on team dynamics. He has found that the optimum ration for high-performance teams is five positive interactions for every negative interaction. this is knows as the "Losada radion"

  • High performance teams were found to have a positive-to-negative ration above 5
  • Medium-performance teams were found to have a ratio of about 2
  • And low-performance teams revealed a ration well below 1

Play is one way to create positive interactions between those on a team.
