It's something greatly to be admired, and aimed for because it gives a concerted effort towards a common purpose..
Some, but not all, All Black teams have had it. The last notable time was in 2015 during the world cup under Richie McCaw's awesome leadership.
Some Arsenal teams have had it - the 2003-2004 'Invincibles' team was the clear example, but too often they have not even been all in the same boat.
Some schools have it, but this is an even rarer situation, in my experience. All it takes is a couple of staff either not contributing or worse, facing the opposite direction, and the boat feels like it's caught a crab.
Personally I've only experienced true alignment twice. Once at Macleans College under the headship of Colin Prentice.
