Several staff in the Office of Technology have elected to participate in a nine-week 7 Habits of Highly Effective People professional development course. Our task this week was to study the sixth habit: Synergize.

The class split into two teams with a challenge to build the tallest tower using only the materials on the table.

Participants exercised several of the effective habits through the exercise: begin with the end in mind; seek first to understand, then to be understood; be proactive, etc. to successfully and creatively collaborate.

This is a photo of the winning team's tower. Note the creative use of sticky notes...
