A group's shared belief, which emerges from an aggregation of individual group members' perception of the group's capabilities to succeed at a given task...


The concept of team efficacy (as opposed to self-efficacy) is sometimes used to capture the collective sense of self-belief that can transform some teams of individually modest players into effective units. Winning games obviously helps team efficacy, especially when opponents are favored to succeed.
