Leadership Lessons From Geese

1. Much greater flying range is added by flying together in a ‘V’ formation, not alone. - People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier because they are travelling on the thrust of each other.
2. When a goose falls out of formation, it moves straight back in to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front. - If we have as much sense as a goose, we stay in formation with those headed where we want to go. We are willing to accept their help and give our help to others.
3. When the lead bird tires, it rotates leadership.- It pays to take turns doing the hard tasks and sharing leadership. As with geese, people are interdependent on each others' skills, capabilities, and unique arrangements of gifts, talents, or resources.
4. Geese honk to encourage those up front to keep up their speed. - We need to make sure our honking is encouraging. In groups where there is encouragement, the production is much greater. The power of encouragement (to stand by one's heart or core values and to encourage the heart and core values of others) is the quality of honking we seek.
5. When a goose gets sick or wounded, two geese drop out of formation and follow it down to help and protect it. -
If we have as much sense of geese, we will stand by each other in difficult times as well as when we're strong.
