Habit 6 – SYNERGY



I’m Phil and I’m a fire starter, not literally of course, but my passion is igniting relationships and building mutually beneficial partnerships. I’m a self-proclaimed business nerd and lover of marketing strategy. I believe entrepreneurship is beautiful. Throughout my career I have helped start companies, bring ideas to life, and launch new initiatives. Today, I act as a bridge between the world of higher education and corporate America. I consider my greatest strength to be the ability to bring out the best in others; my weakness…peanut butter cookies. While I credit most of my knowledge from the “school of life,” I also earned an MBA and have acquired a multi-layered worldview through my international travels.


The “High” Way

Work together to achieve more

Synergy is about producing a third alternative – not my way, not your way, but a third way that is better

than either of us would have come up with individually. Synergistic teams and families thrive on

individual strengths. They go for creative cooperation.

2015 Toledo Synergy Teen Summit September 12, 2015
Inspiring Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – Schedule is at the bottom
No doubt about it, we want the best for our future leaders. We want them to be equipped with the tools, and ready for the journey they have ahead of them. This book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has been sold to over 25 million people worldwide, and there is a reason for that, IT WORKS. It isn’t a magic pill that will somehow lift the young leaders of today up to their potential, it is the blueprint for the work that must be done by each individual in order for that person to find their own personal success.

Sept 12th, Synergistic beginnings: 100 positive people echoing positive words in the ears of young leaders, as they mingle with the community that has come to greet them and share their words of wisdom. Agencies provide opportunities for adults and young leaders to get involved in the community, find recreation, be a mentor, find mentorship, lead, and volunteer. The synergy connects it all, and makes us better do to our connection. Maybe it is one program, a person, a book, a sentence that makes the difference.

September 12th, the speakers for the 2015 Toledo Synergy Teen Summit bring The 7 Habits front and center, and make them come alive. When the right person says the right words, you can feel the shift, and from that moment on, you know life can never be the same.

Their turn! Now that they have heard the speakers interpretation of The 7 Habits, they get the chance to constructor their own. The young leaders will be split into 7 groups, and each group is responsibility to create a commercial for each one of the habits, to be performed in front of everyone, and put on youtube for others to be encouraged and influenced by.
