Abstract

Teams, like individuals, experience stress. While a number of theoretical models and empirical studies have examined the role and effects of stress on team processes and performance, there is surprisingly no guidance for measuring and diagnosing team-level stress. This paper proposes that team stress is a unique construct and necessitates robust measurement systems for its evaluation. To this end, the present paper presents four principles that serve to guide the development of valid and reliable team stress measurement systems.
