Adapted from "The Sense of a Goose" (source unknown)
This fall when you see geese heading south for the winter, flying in a V formation, you might consider what science has discovered as to why they fly this way.
The lesson: People who share a common direction and sense of community can get there more quickly and easily because they are traveling on the trust of one another
The lesson: It makes sense for us to take turns doing the most demanding jobs, for the good of the whole "flock."
The lesson: It is extremely important to encourage other members of our team with positive "honking" so that we can all get where we are going.
The lesson: If we have as much sense as a goose, we will stand by each other during the good times as well as the bad.
