Is this the highest ROI for any business?

Most organisations are over managed and under led.

Subject experts abound – and true leaders are thin on the ground.

Which is probably why you feel powerless sometimes … and not in control.

When it comes to leadership development, you need something that works, from an organisation with a world class track record – that is not only different – but also massively effective.

Our tried, tested and trusted leadership programmes produce ground-breaking performance improvements. And, we find practical and workable inspiration and motivation techniques from many places!

Take for instance great northern geese; they are shrewd and wild birds with a lot to teach us about leadership development.

Unity

A flock of great northern geese will fly thousands of miles in a perfect V formation. As each bird moves its wings, it creates an uplift for the bird that is following.

It’s estimated that because of their formation, flying is 70 percent more efficient than flying alone.

 

 

 

 

Interdependence

At a distance the flock appears to be guided by a single leader. But the lead bird does not in fact guide the formation.

When the lead bird tires, it rotates back in the formation to take advantage of the lifting power of the birds in front.

 

 

 

 

Encouragement

Each flock finds its own unique rhythm and spirit. The pulsating sound of the huge flapping of wings excites and energises the entire formation; the geese enthusiastically “honk” from behind to encourage those in front to keep up their speed.

 

 

 

Loyalty

When a member of the flock becomes sick or wounded, two geese drop out of their formation and follow it down to help and protect it. They stay with it until it is able to fly again – then they soar off together to catch up with the flock.

 

 

 

Rejuvenation

 In the northern hemisphere, geese fly south to spend the winter in a warmer climate.
