"Let us learn the Lessons of  TEAMWORK  from the Actions of Geese"

FACT 1
- As each Goose flaps its wings it creates an uplift for the birds that follow
- By flying in a V formation, the whole flock adds 71 per cent greater flying range, than if each bird flew alone

LESSON
- People who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going more quickly
- and easily because they are traveling on the thrust of one another

FACT 2
- When a Goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of flying alone
- It quickly moves back into formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird immediately in front of it. 

LESSON
- 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
FACT 3
- When the lead Goose tires, it rotates back into the formation and another Goose flies to the point position

LESSON
- It pays to take turns doing the hard tasks and sharing leadership
-As with Geese, people are interdependent on each other's skills, capabilities and unique arrangements of gifts, talents or resources.
FACT 4
- The Geese flying in formation honk to encourage those up front to keep up their speed

LESSON
- 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 encourage the heart and core of other) is the quality of honking we seek
FACT 5
- When a Goose gets sick, wounded or shot down, two Geese drop out of formation and
follow it down to help and protect it. They stay with it until it dies or is able to fly again
Then, they launch out with another formation or catch up with the flock. 

LESSON
- If we have as much sense as Geese, we will stand by each other in difficult times as well as when we are
strong.
