Supporting the The 7 Habits at home!

7-Habits Take Home Activity for April


This month’s Habit: Habit 6 Synergize

Due Date: April 30, 2019


Habit #6: Synergize

What this means: Working together is better. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.


“I get along well with other people and work well in groups.”

“I value the strengths of others and allow myself to learn from them.”

“I know that working together as a team we can get more done and come up with better solutions than we could alone.”

“I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems.”


How can I do this in my life?

With your children, choose a problem you may have (like curfew or completing tasks). Use the Synergy Action Plan to summarize your child's solution and your solution: (1) define the problem, (2) share your views, (3) think of solutions, (4) choose the best solution together. See if you can reach a better solution (The High Way) than either of you could come up with alone.
