Being part of a team is in some ways analogous to being “a face in the crowd”. Teams work best when individuals work towards their shared goal, rather than trying to stand out and be seen for their own performance. This may be particularly true of rowers where, apart from the cox, the movements of all crew members need to be synchronized.

No room for anything spare on a rowing shell. The non-rowing cox may even be the most important person. Rowing eight training in the Waitemata Harbour, Auckland, early morning. Image: Su Leslie, 2016
