Women Executives:  Synergy
 
"Synergy" is one of my favorite words.  It feels good to say; it implies positive energy, and it Wendy Laxtonjust simply resonates with me.  In the simplest of terms, Synergy means the creation of a whole that is greater than the sum of its individual parts.  The origin comes from the Greek word synergos, which means "working together." Synergy can even be represented by a mathematical formula:  1 + 1 = 3.
