If you want your team to work better together, then give them a "goost" by having them follow the example of the goose. The following are some reasons why:
A formation of flying geese is a lesson in teamwork:
As each goose in the formation flaps its wings, it pushes air away and creates an uplift of air for the geese that follow, so they do not have to work as hard to keep flying. Therefore, by flying in a “V” formation the flock has a greater flying range than it would have if each goose were flying separately. Each member of the team should give support and encouragement to each of the other members. The team as a whole will do much better working together as a unit than it would if each member worked on his or her own with no support.
When a goose thinks the formation is too slow and is holding it back, and it may drop out of the formation to wing it on its own. When it does, it suddenly feels the air pressure and the resistance of flying alone. Sometimes team members think the other members are holding them back in their path to success, so they venture out on their own and ignore the needs of the other members. Some may make it, but most will feel the pressure and resistance of winging it alone and will rejoin the team.
