This article presents information regarding the factors leading to high performance of a leader. What creates an upward, positive "spiral of success" is the cultural aerodynamics of optimistic beliefs and the relentless pursuit of a clear vision and shared goal. When people feel that they aren't getting all they want individually from their participation on the team, the coach or leader has to find a way to reach them individually, and give them a sense of their role, their goals, and their unique contribution. When an idea or play works, the author enjoy giving someone else the credit.
