"I have built many successful teams as a manager and have found that the most important factor is to create a personal connection with each member of the team and then create a way for each team member to feel a connection to the team's end goal. Once everyone feels invested in the result, they will be active and involved team members."
"I build a successful team by showing everyone they are valuable, as are their ideas. When people feel like an important part of a collaboration they are more likely to exceed expectations."
"I build a successful team one key member at a time. I hire, train and equip team members to learn all aspects of their roles and our department. Cross training is an effective method of doing this because it provides everyone visibility with the larger picture of the organization and how they impact the bottom line."
"I am very aware of my team members' unspoken feelings. As a creative type, I believe this makes me more intuitive when it comes to the unsaid. I have successful, and motivated teams, because I treat everyone with genuine care. My employees know that they matter to me."

"I keep a collaborative class environment by acting as a harmonizing influence to my students. I keep my eye out for any pain points in the lesson plan, disputes between students, and then use my influence to redirect the mood and conversation."

"I believe getting everyone to understand that we are all on the same team, and we will support everyone to the best of our abilities - has played a big part in my current team's success. If people have something going on at home, they know someone will cover for them. If they make a warranty decision they know that their team and supervisor is going to have their back."
This sounds like a perfect team environment and a very cohesive way of working together. It may also be helpful to speak about the state of the team when you took over, and how it's improved under your leadership.
