We are learning about Habit 6: Synergize.

Habit 6: Synergize is achieved when two or more people work together to create a better solution than either would have thought of alone. It's not your way or my Way, but a better Way.

Think of 1 + 1 = 3 (or more).

How is that possible? Well, 1 person + another person = 2 ideas + many, many more that neither of them would have thought of alone. It's taking good ideas and making them better by working together. Synergize is a great tool for families.

Suggested titles for young children that reinforce Habit 6:

* Swimmy by Leo Lionni

* A Chair for My Mother by Vera B. Williams

Expect your child to use words and phrases like Synergy, working together, 1 + 1 = 3 (or more), and "better idea than we could come up with alone” in his/ her Conversations this week. You can encourage your child by using some of this language at home. You may have an opportunity to share your feelings with your child about Synergize.

Check out the "Parent's Place” at www.The LeaderinMe.org for fun ways to bring the habits home.
