Habit 6: Synergize

Principles of Effectiveness

Creativity, cooperation, diversity, and humility.

What It Means...

Synergy is the manifestation of all the other  habits working together. It means collaborating to create 3rd Alternatives rather than settling for
compromise. When we Synergize, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts—one plus one equals three or more.


"Let’s compromise."

Highly Effective

"Let’s come up with something that’s better than what either of us has in mind."
