How Amazing the Synergy of a Group Can Be

For the past two days I have had the privilege of being at a seminar with an incredible group of people who in that short time have come together and forged friendships, shared experiences and knowledge and will have learned more than we could have imagined from both the speakers and each other. That is the synergy of a group of like-minded people who came together as strangers and will leave as friends sharing common goals and ready to help each other in reaching them.

I have been at seminars before where the speakers were great and the information useful but the dynamics of this group has gone beyond the norm. It makes me wonder what the catalyst is in creating the quick bond between people; is it the current economic crisis which makes us all feel more connected? Whatever it is it is energizing to be here, listening, sharing, talking, learning.

Certainly the people here are the type who see the glass half-full,not half-empty. Regardless of the state of the economy they are upbeat, positive in outlook and not letting the situation or the news sidetrack them from forging ahead with new ideas and plans for starting or improving a business. They are people who will not just survive the current economic situation, but actually move ahead with new plans and new endeavors.
