If the teams leadership is not competent and confident they will not have the trust of the team. Without the trust of the team membership they will not be able to inspire team members to work toward accomplishing the mission, whatever it may be. Place stress and danger in the mix and you have a recipe for disaster. All failures are leadership failures.There is not such thing as a bad team there are only bad leaders. Just like the Bad News Bears were just a mob on the field, good leadership can bring the team together to accomplish the mission.
