In just over 3 minutes it teaches five key lessons about being a team player and winning as a team. Its dramatic footage of Geese flying in formation against the musical background of “Groovin with Mr Bloe” provides insights into how to excel in and as teams. By flying in the "V" formation, the whole flock adds 71% greater flying range than if a bird flew alone. As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an "uplift" for the bird that follows.

Lesson: People who share a common direction and sense of community get where they are going quicker and easier because they 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 and quickly gets back into the formation to take advantage of the "lifting power" of the bird immediately in the front.

Lesson: If we have as much sense as geese, we will stay in formation with those who are headed where we want to go (and be willing to accept their help as well as give ours to others). When the lead goose gets tired, it rotates back into formation and another goose flies at the point position.

Lesson: It pays to take turns doing the hard or difficult task, and share leadership with people. As with geese, we are mutually dependent on each other. The geese in the formation honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

Lesson: We need to make sure our honking from behind is encouraging and not something else. When a goose gets sick or wounded and is forced to drop out of formation, two geese drop out and follow it down and stay with it to help and protect it. They stay with it until it is able to fly again or it dies. Then they launch out on their own until they can join another formation or catch up with their gaggle.

Lesson: If we have as much sense as geese, we too will stand by each other in difficult times, and we will be dedicated to each other's success. You can use it as a motivational starter or closer again and again with every group in your organization.
