Become Cooperative — Eliminate Antagonistic!

Improve TQ Synergize Factor 7B...

"I treat everyone as a valuable member of one of my teams, and encourage a true sense of cooperation among us."

Life is easier when you approach it as if you're on the same team. Whatever the circumstance, whether you're at a dinner party or giving a sales presentation, find a way to see yourself and everyone else as a team. Look for similarities instead of differences. Find out what each person's goal is for each situation. Then discover ways you can be of mutual benefit to each other. Always encourage cooperation. Find a common purpose and reinforce the positive value each person has to offer.

Remember, SYNERGIZE is the seventh color in the Time Prism Performance Spectrum because once your 24-hour day is filled up, the only way you can become more productive, increase the quality of your results, or reduce the time required for accomplishing your goals is through the participation and contribution of other people.

You CAN achieve your greatest dreams and aspirations. Simply improve your TQ Synergize Color.

TQ Factor 7B "Thin Line"...

Cooperative vs. Antagonistic is a choice — Your CHOICE!

There's a Thin Line between success and failure. Choose to take Factor 7B more often, and the following POSITIVE characteristics will automatically begin to accumulate and flow into to your performance—moving you TOWARDS the results you want and the success you desire.

Positives     Negatives

Choose to take this action infrequently, or not at all, and the opposing NEGATIVE traits will dominate your performance and sabotaging your success... moving you AWAY from achieving your goals and aspirations.

Think about it. How much more successful would you be if you were a little MORE Cooperative... and a little LESS Antagonistic?

TQ Factor 7B CONTRIBUTION to your performance...

A high commitment suggests you consistently look for ways where the other person benefits from their interactions with you. You believe that you can get more done working with others instead of against them. You strive for cooperation and never insist on a "I-win-you-lose" outcome. You try to see everyone from the perspective that you are on the same team. As members of the same team, you try to discover how you can be of benefit to each other. This helps you make consistent progress as you "team-up" with others for mutual gains.

TQ Factor 7B COST to your performance...

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who only cares that you win. You may see the entire world as competition -- and it's you versus everyone else. You may be afraid that they'll beat you -- if you don't beat them first. Long-term relationships rarely take precedence over short-term benefits. Everyday is another battle against the world. When you see everyone as your adversary, it's no surprise that you see so few people who are ready and willing to help you improve or complete your projects.

TQ Factor 7B BENEFIT: You have more power...

By cooperating with others, agreements are made, friendships are formed and contracts are signed. You accumulate performance positives like "Cooperative, Appreciative and Supportive" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

FAIL to do TQ Factor 7B: Less Power...

Everything is harder than necessary when you work against other people instead of with them. Negatives like "Antagonistic, Contentious and Uncooperative" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

We are in a brutally competitive industry and if we don't learn to sell and compete smarter, it is the difference between us getting the business or getting out of business. This gave us the edge we were looking for.
