Synergy is when the sum of the whole is greater than its parts. An illustration I learned was of a heavy bucket. When one person picks it up they may struggle, yet when two people pick it up it is far easier. There is a synergy to their combined effort greater than each can accomplish on their own.
I have been working with a client for a year now and witnessed her grow, flourish and reach a place beyond where I can coach her. Separately, I shared this when I interviewed Nate Ridgeway on the podcast and he offered to connect with her.
She agreed and today they spoke while we were coaching. He added so much value, I learned a lot and what he shared really surprised me. It was not about how to get more sales, sign up more people or advertise.
He said, “Don’t get discouraged, direct your effort to a positive idea.” He shared these key points:
- Work on your personal development each day.
- Add Value to others every day
- Be a person of value
- Read and watch videos on Personal Development each day such as, Eric Worre Podcast Go Pro and John Maxwell.
The Synergy of working with another coach, one that was an expert in an area I am not, one that could provide consulting and help is priceless. Nate is a giver and adds value to everyone. How can you add value today? Get on your way!!
Today’s exercise is to add value to someone’s life and look at where you can create synergy with others or invite synergy into your life.
