  • have a great many winners in them; most of the players poised and confident, and although they may well be 'stars' in their own right they allow others to shine in order to hold a 'star team' together  >>>

  • often include winning groups and combinations which work together so well they seem to have a six sense, whereas in fact they have merely learned to cooperate to make each other winners and to make a team a winning team

  • have the winning habit and because they usually have more winning games behind them than otherwise they go into every game expecting to win

  • develop a synergy that comes from winning and which increases not by simple progression but exponentially: 11=11  >>>

  • develop both mental and physical energy to withstand adversity

  • create a winning atmosphere everyone surrounding them emerges as a winner

  • make winning contagious so that new comers soon acquire the team's magic
