Members of groups come together and either succeed or fail based on a number of variables, including their level of cohesion.
An example of a group that had a great deal of cohesion is the U.S. Olympic hockey team that faced the Russians at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics. See page 127 in the text for a brief description of this winning Olympic team.
