Flight Formation You Will Not Learn at Eagle School

Have you ever led people who never did rise up and fulfill your expectations? No matter how much you motivated them, trained them, provided them with resources, or gave them opportunities, they just didn’t perform according to your expectations?

Maybe they weren’t the problem. Maybe you were. Cats do what cats do, geese do what geese do, and eagles do what eagle do. If you take a goose and ask it to do an eagle’s job, that is all on you dude.

As a leader, your job is to help your geese to become better geese and your eagles better eagles-to put individuals in the right places and help them reach their potential.

Over the years, sometimes we’ve the mistake of trying to turn geese into eagles. All we did was frustrate them and ourselves. We shouldn’t ask and expect someone to grow in areas where they have no natural talent.

What geese know...


In the Fall, when you see geese heading South for the Winter, flying along in a “V” formation, you might be interested in knowing what science has discovered about why they fly that way.

It has been learned that as each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird immediately following. By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own. Similarly, people who are part of a team and share a common direction get where they are going faster and easier because they are traveling on the trust of one another and lifting each other up along the way.

Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go through it alone, and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the power of the flock. If we have as much sense as a goose, we will stay in formation, and share information with those who are headed in the same way that we are going.

When the lead goose gets tired, he rotates back in the wings; and another goose takes over the formation. It pays to share leadership, and take turns doing hard jobs.

The geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep their speed. Words of support and inspiration help energize those on the frontline, helping them to keep pace in spite of the day-to-day pressures and fatigue. It is important that our honking be encouraging; otherwise it’s just, well… honking.

Finally, when a goose gets sick or wounded and falls out, two geese fall out of the formation and follow the injured one down to help and protect him. They stay with him until he either dies or is able to fly. Then they launch out with another formation to catch up with their group.

When one of us is down, it’s up to the others to stand by us in our time of trouble. If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other when things get rough. We will stay in formation with those headed where we want to go. The next time you see a formation of geese, remember their message that it is indeed a reward, challenge, and privilege to be a contributing member of a team.

Geese are not supposed to be eagles-nor do they want to become eagles. Who they are is who they should be. Geese have their strength and should be appreciated for them. They're excellent swimmers. Ask an eagle to swim or to migrate thousands of miles, and it's going to be in trouble.
Leadership is all about placing people in the right place so they can be successful.
As a leader, you should always challange people to move out of their comfort zone, but never out of their strength zone.
