I have led a team of X "engineers and technicians". I measure my success as a team lead by the degree to which the project goals were achieved within a set of project constraints.

I have a team size of x agents and I measure my success through the grooming that I have given my agents which now helps them to take up any task in hand with full confidence.

I have managed a sales team of 4 men who directly reported to me.

My success as a team leader was measured by the collective accomplishments of each of my team member.

Those who performed better were not only identified, praised and rewarded; but also encouraged to assist & motivate other colleagues to perform better and thus make our team stronger.

I have led a team of 40 members.  I go personally to each and every individual and interact with them, find their problems if any in acheiving their target.  If they are acheiving their target, I praise them, give a pat on their back, and encourage them to continue the same.  If an individual is lacking behind, I will enquire the reason behind it and suggest a corrective measure on how to go about it.

I have led a team of 4 who are all inexperienced in the technology. I helped them understanding the technology and allowed them to learn on their own by introducing problems while learning. Now they are capable of learning any new technology and working on the current technology as well.

I have handled X number of team members who directly report to me. In last 18 months (since I took over the team lead's role) there have been 0% attrition in my team, all the agreed SLA's for the process have been met &  3 of my team members have been promoted to their next level. This explains that I have been preety succesful in my role as a team lead.

To me this is a tricky question. 

A team success rate is usually calculated by accomplishing the objective on time or as per Service Level Agreement. Even after accomplished the job well within time, the product which we deliver should be of high quality and meets all the Users Acceptance criteria. 
Other then meeting the business requirement, keeping the team members well oiled and motivated in taking up any challenge is the bigger aspect in measuring the success rate of a team lead.

I have lead a team of 13 bankers and currently lead a team of 7 investment bankers.  I strongly feel I work with the best and we all are winners, I measure my success as a leader when I see consistency, adherence to our values and when my team exceeds our service level agreement to both our internal and external clients.  Personal development is also very high on my list, when I see my team taking initiative to develop their skills and knowledge is the greatest achievement for me.

I have handled team size of 8.

A performing, motivated and groomed team implies successful team leader.

Along with that client satisfactions is also a key point that measures a team leader's efficiency. Zero defects, timely completion of task and fulfillment of SLAs are achievements of team leaders.
