Besides, a lot of stuff in this list appears to be bull# anyway...

FACT: Humans don't fly!
Lesson: Looking at an inspirational picture hanging in your office of Geese flying in a v with the words teamwork over the top of it isn't a good idea for a topic in ATS.
Fact: Only bosses believe they can effect their workers production levels positively through inspirational non sense like this.

If geese were rugged individualists, they wouldn't have to migrate.

Thank you for posting this. As someone who has flown with a flock and now flies alone, there are good and bad points that come with both. Flying alone, I am in control and can fly at my own pace and choose my own path, but it is very exhausting. In the flock i would sometimes get annoyed with the others, but it is nice to have someone else to help carry you when you slow down, and share the burdens of stress with you.
I don't think this was meant to discourage Independence. Independence is a wonderful thing. But as a society we need to learn to work well together to improve our efficiency and social webbing.
