Esprit de Corps Example

Espirit de corps basically refers to employee morale.
May be we can elaborate it as:
Suppose a new project comes to a manager, which he wants to assign to 3 of his employees.
As a manager he has been analysing the employees.
So when assigning the work he can make sure that the employees get the opportunities according to the skills which they posses to make the project successful.
He can ask the first person who is good in managing things to come up with a complete plan which needs to be worked out and to lead that part whenever required.
The second person who is good in communication can be used to discuss the issues with the client.
The third person can lead the technical part as he/she good in that.
As a result all employees get the work they prefer/enjoy doing and each one gets equal opportunity of showing their individual talent so it will avoid possible jealousies and disturbing harmonious relations.
As a result the work gets completed on time.
