Both in the work process and in private life  we have to valorize the other person’s perspective in order to create synergy and enhance creativity and openness.

Synergy allows us to create new alternatives and open new possibilities. It’s like two plants that are growing up together, their roots will interweave and will be more stable and stronger together.



After learning how to create Win-Win solutions and improving your understanding skill with the habits 4 & 5 you can pool your desires with those of the other person or group. And then you’ll all be tuned looking at the same problem and working on different ways to solve it and in this process you’re also building a strong relationship.

Working and giving others trust and safety will make them become extremely open, creating synergy.

“The key to valuing differences is to realize that all people see the world. Not as it is, but as they are.” Says Covey.

So the real essence of synergy is valuing the mental, emotional and psychological  differences between people.

For these reasons it’s so important to seek first to understand, and then to find utility in these different perspectives in order to create new Win-Win solutions.

Synergy will allow you to:

  • Value the difference in other people as a possibility for you to expand your perspective
  • Step away from negative energy and look for good one in others
  • Practice your courage in interdependent situations to be open and encourage others to be open
  • Enhance your creativity in order to find a solution that will be better for everyone by looking for a third alternative
