What is Synergy?
Synergy is achieved when two or more people work together to create a better solution than either could alone.
We all learn differently
How does understanding the personality make up of your team help you to be an effective leader?
by flying in formation the whole flock can fly 71% farther than if each bird flew alone. When a goose flaps its wings, it creates an updraft for the goose that follows.
as the lead goose gets tires, he will rotate to the back of the V and allow another goose to take the lead.
geese in the back honk to encourage those in the front.
if a goose falls out of formation it immediately feels the resistance of trying to fly alone and quickly gets back into formation
when one of the geese gets sick or is wounded and falls out of formation, two geese follow it down to help and protect it.
What does this teach us about teamwork?
Habit 6
We see them come.
We see them go.
Some are fast.
And some are slow.
Not one of them is like another.
Don't as us why .
Go ask your mother.

Acknowledge that everyone has the right to be different
They don't SHUN diversity, but they don't EMBRACE it either.
"You do your thing and I'll do mine"
They see differences as hurdles, not potential strengths to build upon.

Value differences
see differences as an advantage, not a weakness
diversity = creative sparks = opportunity

We have different styles, traits and personalities.
