Sense of a Goose

When I read this story it really hit home because this is how all of us at The Coleman Real Estate Group see ourselves. A flock of geese flying together toward the goal of helping our clients with their real estate needs. We are without a doubt… a team that sticks together just like the geese. Our goal, to bring each of our clients a joyful and stress free experience during the largest transaction in their lives. Please take a moment to read the story below and enjoy!

gooseSense of a Goose
from  – article by Roger Darlington

Next Autumn, 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 that way. As each bird flaps its wings, it creates an  uplift for the bird immediately following. 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.

  • People who share a common direction and sense of community can get  where they are going more quickly and easily, because they are  travelling on the thrust of one another.

When a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and  resistance of trying to go it alone and quickly gets back into formation  to take advantage of the lifting power of the bird in front.

  • If we have the sense of a goose, we will stay in formation with those people who are heading the same way we are.

When the head goose gets tired, it rotates back in the wing and another goose flies point. 

  • It is sensible to take turns doing demanding jobs, whether with people or with geese flying south.

Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.

  • What message do we give when we honk from behind?

Finally – and this is important – when a goose gets sick or is  wounded by gunshot, and falls out of the formation, two other geese fall  out with that goose and follow it down to lend help and protection.  They stay with the fallen goose until it is able to fly or until it  dies; and only then do they launch out on their own, or with another  formation to catch up with their own group.

  • If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other like that.
