Lessons from Geese

Fact 1: As each goose flaps its wings, it


creates an uplift for the birds that follow. By flying in a V formation, the whole flock adds 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew alone.

Lesson: People who share a common direction and


sense of community can get where they are going quicker and easier because they are traveling on the thrust of one another.

Fact 2: When a goose falls out of formation, it


suddenly feels the drag and resistance of flying alone. It quickly moves back into formation to take full advantage of the lifting power of the bird immediately in front of it.

Lesson: If we have as

much sense as a goose, we stay in formation with those headed where we want to go. We are willing to accept their help and give our help to others.

Fact 3: When the lead goose tires, it rotates back


into the formation and another goose flies to the point position.

Co-workers
Employees

Supervisors

Family & Friends

Lesson: It pays to take turns doing hard tasks and


sharing leadership. Like geese, people are interdependent on each others skills, capabilities, and unique gifts, talents, or resources.

Fact 4: The geese flying in formation honk to


encourage those upfront to keep up their speed.

Lesson: We need to make sure our honking is


encouraging. In groups where there is encouragement, the production is much greater. The power of encouragement is the quality of honking we seek. (to stand
by ones heart or core values and encourage the heart and core of others)

Fact 5: When a goose gets sick or wounded, two geese


drop out of formation and follow it down it down to help and protect it. They stay until it dies or is unable to fly again. Then, they launch out with another formation or catch up with the flock.

Lesson: If we have as much sense as geese, we will


stand by each other in difficult times as well as when we are strong.

Challenges of Being a LEADER

66

CHALLENGES OF BEING A LEADER


REJECTION LONELINESS CRITICISM PRESSURE & PERPLEXITY

MENTAL AND PHYSICAL FATIGUE PRICE PAID BY THOSE CLOSEST TO YOU

67

CHALLENGES OF BEING A LEADER


REJECTION
One of the most common costs of leadership is the experience of rejection. If you are willing to accept the call to leadership, at times, you may be rejected and misunderstood

68

CHALLENGES OF BEING A LEADER


CRITICISM

No leader is exempt! The very nature of effective leadership involves taking a position on issues, making decisions, and determining direction. These will always result in some form of reaction from ones environment.

69

CHALLENGES OF BEING A LEADER


LONELINESS
Leadership, at times, is lonely because you must be out front, ahead of the followers. Also, because the leader is the one with the guiding vision and purpose, he/she sees the end from the beginning and must live both the process and destination, all at the same time.
70

CHALLENGES OF BEING A LEADER


PRESSURE AND PERPLEXITY Leaders must face the challenge of the responsibilities and demands that come with leadership. These involve the need to make critical decisions, often under constraints and external pressure.

71

CHALLENGES OF BEING A LEADER


MENTAL AND PHYSICAL FATIGUE Leadership places heavy demands on the individual who fills the position. There is no way to become an effective leader and not be affected by its stress, physical demands, and mental toll.

72

CHALLENGES OF BEING A LEADER


PRICE PAID BY THOSE CLOSEST TO YOU
You must be aware of the tremendous cost which will be born by those closest to you (for example, family members). Because leadership demands the giving of oneself to others, your life becomes the property of those whom you SERVE.

73

EXPANDING YOUR PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT


1.

Assess your present level of personal empowerment. (Be honest. Solicit input from various sources.) Determine whether your performance falls below, meets, or exceeds customer expectations. If your performance is below expectations, assess your level of commitment. (Seriously reexamine whether you are committed to meeting the expectations of your position. If not, make plans for doing something else.)

74

EXPANDING YOUR PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT


4.

Committed, determine the new skills you require. (If your responsibility and accountability expanded with your new/present position, write details about the new skills you requirepersonal and/or professional skills.)
Acquire a mentor/coach to hold you accountable. (Check out the results you produce.)

5.

6.

Work to overcome your self-limitations. (Lets talk about self-esteem.)

75

EXPANDING YOUR PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT


7.

If committed to expanded empowerment, define a new challenging area of activity. (Describe a project or an area of activity you would enjoy. This should involve significantly expanded responsibility in terms of the acquisition of new personal and/or professional skills.)
Proceed and apply steps five and six where difficulties occur. (Get started on the new project; use and learn proven professional methods and knowledge.)

Willingness to accept empowerment Training

78

Judgment
Experience
