Habit 6: Synergize is all about working with others to create solutions that value other people as well as yourself. Dr. Stephen R. Covey explains how the synergistic position of high trust produces solutions better than any originally proposed. Instead of a transaction, it’s a transformation; both parties get what they want and build their relationship in the process.

“There is almost always a third alternative, and if you work with a win/win philosophy and really seek to understand, you can usually find a solution that will be better for everyone concerned.”

In this in-depth exploration of Habit 6, listeners will hear Dr. Covey teach how to value differences and thereby increase awareness, growth, and change. The result is that the whole enterprise moves upward, often in ways that no one could have anticipated.

“Synergy works; it’s a correct principle. It is the crowning achievement of all the previous habits. It is effectiveness in an interdependent reality—it is teamwork, team building, the development of unity and creativity with other human beings.”

This is not pop psychology or simply a trendy catch phrase. Rather Dr. Covey helps the listener examine the character attributes that lead to behaviors. By living with honesty, integrity, kindness, and other time-tested principles, listeners find the real keys to changing unwanted behaviors.
