Smells like team spirit


According to Payne and Whittaker (2006) there are some differences between groups and teams…

“A team possesses extra qualities that a group does not have…trust, honesty and commitment…and this leads to synergy…”

There are many sporting examples of great team spirit but one of the most famous is when a largely average group of individual footballers at Liverpool FC showed amazing team spirit to come back from 3-0 down against the superstars of AC Milan in 2005 to win the Champions League. What an amazing game…

Can you think of any other great examples of team spirit or group synergy?
