One more good anecdote on teamwork from Idea-Bank
The sin (and danger) of excessive pride (or an excessive ego) is admirably demonstrated in this simple fable:
A frog asked two geese to take him south with them. At first they resisted; they didn’t see how it could be done. Finally, the frog suggested that the two geese hold a stick in their beaks and that he would hold on to it with his mouth.
So off the unlikely threesome went, flying southward over the countryside. It was really quite a sight. People looked up and expressed great admiration at this demonstration of creative teamwork.
Someone said, “It’s wonderful! Who was so clever to discover such a fine way to travel?”
