Habit 6: Synergize
The Habit of Creative Cooperation

People who synergize understand that everyone has unique talents and that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.  They also work together to arrive at new and better alternatives.
 
Kid Language
Together Is Better: I value other people’s strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others, even people who are different than me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone. I am humble.
 
Ways to practice Synergize:
  • Write down three things that you’re really good at. Then write down three things that someone else you know is good at.
  • Watch your favorite sports team play a game. Pay extra attention to how all of the players work together as a team.
  • This summer put up a lemonade stand with your friends.  One person can create a poster, one can make the lemonade, and one can set up the table and bring the cups and ice.  Have fun!
