Geese flying in a V-formation as seen above is a common phenomenon.  It's a welcome sign of spring and also heralds the coming of winter. Not only is this a marvelous sight to watch, but there are some remarkable and significant lessons that we humans can learn from the flight of the geese.

1. As each goose flaps its wings, it creates uplift for others behind it.  There is 71% 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.

2.  Whenever a goose flies out of this formation, it feels drag and tries to get back into position.
Lesson: It’s harder to do something alone than together.

3.  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.

4.  The geese flying in the rear of the formation honk to encourage those upfront to keep up their speed. 
Lesson: Encouragement is motivating. We need to make sure our “honking” is encouraging and not discouraging.

5.  When a goose gets sick or wounded and falls, two geese fall out of formation 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.
