Since joining forces and forming “Team Zuhl,” my husband and I have
become rather similar to those geese in the famous team building analogy.
For example, geese that fly in a V formation create an uplift of air for the other geese in the flock making the trip easier for all. By sharing our goals and motivation, my partner and I have been able to feed upon each other’s successes and become more successful in turn. The whole really is greater than the sum of its parts.
Geese honk to encourage the lead goose to keep up its speed. My biggest cheerleader is my husband, and I’m his.
When the lead goose gets tired, he can change positions to be farther back in the V and another goose takes the lead. Likewise, when Wayne is having an off day, I can pick up the slack and vice versa. At the same time, Wayne and I each have unique talents that we bring to the team and we respect each other’s contributions.
