Goose Lesson 1• Geese: The V formation gives 71% extra power; they fly 71% further with the same energy compared to flying alone.• People: We are more effective when we work together towards common goals
Goose Lesson 2• Geese: A bird leaving the formation quickly returns.• People: It is much tougher to go it alone; it can be better to accept help from the group and to play a part in the group
Goose Lesson 3• Geese: The lead of the V rotates; when the leader gets tired, another goose flies at the front.• People: We need to share leadership – we are interdependent and should all be prepared to shoulder responsibility
Goose Lesson 4• Geese: The geese in the V honk from behind to encourage the leaders to keep up their speed.• People: We should support those that lead us by challenging them to do their best but also cheering them on.
Goose Lesson 5• Geese: A wounded or sick goose will be followed down by two other geese for protection. They stay until it is able to fly again before re-joining the flock.• People: We need to stand by each other in difficult times.
