LEADERSHIP

GEESE FLYING IN FORMATION

When you see geese heading south for the winter flying along in a “V” formation. You might be interested in knowing that science has discovered why they fly that way. Research has revealed that as each bird flaps its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird immediately behind it. By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock adds at least 71 percent greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own. Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go alone. It quickly


take advantage of the lifting power of the bird immediately in front. When the lead goose gets tired, he rotates back in the “V” and another goose flies the point. The geese then honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed. And finally,

when a goose gets sick, or is wounded by gunfire and falls out, two other geese falls out of formation and follow it down to help and protect it. It stay with the goose until it is either able to fly again or dead, and then they catch up with their group ~ Anon

If you’re an effective leader, you don’t preach from behind. You lead from the front.

As jy bevoorreg is om jou eie besigheid te hê, of om in n bestuurs pos te wees, vra jouself: Het jy genoeg vertroue in jou mense om by jou oor te neem as jy moeg word?

Of: As hulle moeg word, is jy daar om te help?

N leier is iemand wat meer kan sien as wat ander kan sien. Wat verder kan sien as wat ander kan sien, en wat dit kan sien voor ander dit kan sien. Leroy Eimes
