Are You Cooperating Today -- Or Are You Still Competing?
Synergy is based on interdependence. To compound your results, let go of your need for independence and control, and learn how to become a valuable member of a team.
Group synergy will blossom and bloom when you coach your team to be both cooperative and supportive.
Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Synergize Color: Celebrate Diversity -- Include EVERYONE on Your Team.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:
- How can you strengthen the interdependence of a team you're currently working with?
- Have you told the people who are indispensable to your team just how important they are?
- How could you support any prima donnas or renegades on your team -- those who need to be converted to interdependent thinking -- without invalidating their strengths?
So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?
Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Synergize Factor 7B? (Celebrate Diversity -- Include EVERYONE on Your Team.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.
A high commitment (7B rated 8 or better) suggests you consistently look for ways where the other person benefits from their interactions with you. You believe that you can get more done working with others instead of against them. You strive for cooperation and never insist on a "I-win-you-lose" outcome. You try to see everyone from the perspective that you are on the same team. As members of the same team, you try to discover how you can be of benefit to each other. This helps you make consistent progress as you "team-up" with others for mutual gains.
A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who only cares that you win. You may see the entire world as competition -- and it's you versus everyone else. You may be afraid that they'll beat you -- if you don't beat them first. Long-term relationships rarely take precedence over short-term benefits. Everyday is another battle against the world. When you see everyone as your adversary, it's no surprise that you see so few people who are ready and willing to help you improve or complete your projects.
What happens when you do TQ Factor 7B more frequently?
You have more power. By cooperating with others, agreements are made, friendships are formed and contracts are signed.
You accumulate performance positives like "Cooperative, Appreciative and Supportive" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.
What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 7B?
You have less power. Everything is harder than necessary when you work against other people instead of with them.
Negatives like "Antagonistic, Contentious and Uncooperative" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
