Habit 6: Synergize
Transcript of Habit 6: Synergize
Learn to celebrate differences
Diversity around you is increasing
Since diversity is increasing you have an important decision to make...
deciding how to handle it.
Level 1: Shunner's Pofile
Shunners are afraid of differences
Disturbed by the fact that people have different skin colors, worship a different God, or wear a different brand of jeans than they do
They're convinced that their way of life is the “best” or “right’, or even the “only” way of life.
Level 2: Tolerators Profile
Believe everyone has the right to be different
Don’t shun diversity but don’t embrace it either
You keep to yourself and I’ll keep to myself. You do your thing and let me do mine. You don’t bother me and I won’t bother you.’
They come close to synergy but never get there because they see differences and not strengths
Level 3: Celebrators Profile
See differences as an advantage not a weakness
They know that 2 people who work together will achieve more
Diversity= Creative Sparks= OPPORTUNITY

Roadblocks to Celebrating Differences
The are three major roadblocks to synergy.
Ignorance : Means you're clueless
Don't know what other people believe
How they feel
What they been through
When you have a group of friends but it becomes a problem when your friends become exclusive that they reject everyone who isn't just like them
When you stereotype
When you label
We are not born with prejudices
It is something we see and learn.
We decide to be prejudices or not
Getting to Synergy

Get Creative: Throw out your wildest ideas. Let it flow

Piggyback: Build upon the best ideas. One great one leads to another, which leads to another
Find the best solution

The problem will be solved
Teamwork and Synergy
