Leadership in Project Life Cycle and Tea... > Team Character Development Stages

Team Character Development Stages

One way to strengthen the collective capacity of team members to complete the project life cycle successfully is to regard projects as opportunities for team character development. In this respect, successful projects not only facilitate organizational decisions and build relationships and role competencies, but also necessitate and develop team character (Gadeken 1998).

Group Character and Virtue Development in Successful Projects

Team character is the collective set of virtues and pattern of intentions that dispose members to be ready to act ethically (Petrick and Quinn 1997). Team character expands and shrinks with the exercise of virtue and the avoidance of vice in projects. Virtue is the disposition to desire an action that is favorable, either for the well-being of society/world or for the flourishing of the agent for his own stake (Brandt 1988). Virtues are cultivated through examples and regular exercise so that honorable intentions and good acts become second nature to virtuous teams.
