Another point I’d like to discuss is the sound of geese honking that we hear when they move actually encourages each other to go on. Maybe that could be considered as an argument, however what?!
The experience made me think about how we can model the kind and intelligent behaviour of geese. It also brought back something that I’ve always felt. That is that being with like-minded individuals creates an inner sense of power and purpose. It also fosters a sense of community.
What could we take away from feathered geese?
1. The V formation gives the entire flock a greater flying distance.
The lesson: People who have the same sense of community assist each other in getting to where they want to go faster because they’re travelling with the confidence of each other.
2. If a goose is thrown from formation, It suddenly feels the drag and apprehension of flying on its own. It swiftly returns to benefit from the power of lifting birds ahead.
The lesson: If we have the same sense of humour as geese do, we will stay in line with the people who are heading in the direction we’d like to travel. We will accept their assistance and offer our assistance to those around us because we’re in trust we have in one another.
3. If the goose in front gets tired, it falls to the ground, and another goose is able to fly back to the point.
The lesson: It is beneficial to split the challenging jobs. We must respect and safeguard the uniqueness of each other’s talents, abilities, and resources.
4. The geese in formation hoop to encourage the frontrunners to keep up with them.
The lesson: We must ensure that the honking we do is encouraging. In teams that have motivation, the production (result) is significantly higher. Personal empowerment comes from high-quality honking.
5. When a goose becomes unwell, the two birds fall from formation and go down to aid and safeguard it.
Lektion: If we’re able to have the same level of intelligence as geese do, we’ll remain together in difficult times, and we’re solid.
The most effective results occur when every member assists each other in order that their efforts yield the most effective result since nobody has to be able to do everything. It’s similar to multi-level marketing.
If we’re in charge, be sure to share the authority. Don’t be power-hungry and seek feedback from others. If we’re not in order, be willing to help or carry yourself. In any case, you should say gratitude to the other people who are involved. Be supportive of each other even when it gets tricky. Perhaps if we encourage each other at the beginning, the situation will not be a problem!
If a friend is angry, stressed and is ready to give up, the most effective way to help them is to give them a quality HONK!
Repeat these steps repeatedly. It won’t just lift your spirits but will also assist you in building a commitment to maximum performance both within and among your team.
