Geese flying in a V-formation is a marvelous sight, but there are some remarkable lessons that we can learn from the flight of the geese, because all that they do has significance:

  1. As each goose flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for others behind it. There is 71 percent more flying range in V-formation than in flying alone.
    Lesson: People who share a common direction and sense of purpose can get there more quickly.
  1. Whenever a goose flies out of formation, it feels drag and tries to get back into position.
    Lesson: It's harder to do something alone than together.
  1. When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back into formation and another goose flies at the head.
    Lesson: Shared leadership and interdependence give us each a chance to lead as well as an opportunity to rest.
  1. The geese flying in the rear of the formation honk to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.
    Lesson: Encouragement is motivating. We need to make sure our "honking" is encouraging—and not discouraging.
  1. When a goose gets sick or wounded and falls, two geese fall out and stay with it until it revives or dies. Then they catch up or join another flock.
    Lesson: We may all need help from time to time. We should stand by our colleagues in difficult times.
