I believe human synergy is among the strongest forces in the universe and that the next phase of human development is related to learning how to better make use of it. Defined simply, human synergy is when two or more people come together in a way that accomplishes more than the people could do individually. It’s the age-old concept of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

I try to describe it to my students this way. There is “you.” There is “me.” And then, coming together, there is “us.” Each alone, there are only two things, “you” and “me.” Together we have three things, “you,” “me” and “us.”

What kind of “me” do I bring to the “us?”
