Despite their quarterback, Carson Wentz, getting hurt at the end of the season as well as other starting players getting injured, the Philadelphia Eagles were victorious in Super Bowl LII.

When you work at building up the specific strengths and skills of all team members, you create a high-performance team that comes together, cohesively, to get results.
