A lesson from Geese…….. Teamwork, Leadership, Health, Safety & Security

Have you ever wondered why migrating Geese fly in a V formation?:

Have you ever wondered why migrating Geese fly in a V formation?

In a V formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% more flying range than if each bird flew alone:

As each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird following. In a V formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% more flying range than if each bird flew alone

….and quickly gets back into formation.:

Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to fly alone. ….and quickly gets back into formation.

….teams who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier than those who try it alone.:

Like Geese….. ….teams who share a common direction and sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier than those who try it alone.

If we had as much sense as Geese, we would realise that ultimately our success depends on working as a team, taking turns doing the hard tasks and sharing leadership.:

When a Goose gets tired it rotates back into the formation and another goose flies at the point position. If we had as much sense as Geese, we would realise that ultimately our success depends on working as a team, taking turns doing the hard tasks and sharing leadership.

Slide 7:

Geese in the rear of the formation honk to encourage those upfront to up their speed. It’s important that our “honking” from behind is encouraging, otherwise it’s just – well – honking.

Slide 8:

When a goose gets sick or wounded, two other geese drop out of formation and follow it down to provide encouragement and protection. They stay with their unhealthy member of the flock until it is able to fly.

Slide 9:

Then they launch out again with another passing flock or try to catch up their own. Are we willing to help out our team member when they need help or encouragement?

There’s no I in TEAM:

There’s no I in TEAM Peak-performing teams generate positive group synergism. Being a true team player goes beyond individual accomplishments and personal gain. Teamwork isn’t a part-time activity; it’s a full-time commitment. If you want to be a member of a high-performance team and reap the benefits, you need to learn to fly in formation!
