THE GOOSE STORY
Transcript of THE GOOSE STORY
BY: GROUP 2
As each goose flaps its wings it creates “uplift” for the birds that follow. By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock adds 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew alone.
If we who share a common direction and sense of community, we can get where we are going more quickly and easily because we are traveling on the thrust of one another.
Whenever 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.
If we have as much sense as geese, we will stay in formation with those who are headed where we want to go and we are willing to accept their help and give our help to others.
When the lead goose tires, it rotates back into formation and another goose flies at the point position.
If we take turns doing the hard tasks and sharing leadership as with the geese, we become interdependent with one onother.
The geese flying in formation honk to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.
If we "honk", we need to make sure our honking is positive and 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 others) is the quality of honking we seek.
When a goose gets sick or wounded, two geese drop out of formation and follow it to help and protect it. They stay with it until it is able to fly again or dies. Then, they launch out with another formation or catch up with the flock.
We too, should stand by each other in difficult times, as well as when we are strong.

Lessons From Geese
Let us all try to fly in formation and remember to drop back to help those who might need it!
That's the power of
Geese belong to the order Anseriformes, which includes all sorts of waterfowl. Swans and geese are the largest waterfowl, characterized by long necks and non-iridescent coloration. Even though they are waterfowl, geese spend most of their time on land.
