What — Are the 7 Lessons?
In every circumstance, especially during difficult team situations, the Right-Minded Teammate uses these mindful lessons to move them into the right-minded way of thinking and behaving.
Here are the seven lessons.
- “I am not upset about this difficult team situation for the reason I think.”
- “I accept and own my part in this situation.”
- “It’s impossible my thoughts about this situation are neutral.”
- “I forgive others and myself.”
- “I will transform the effects of this difficult team situation.”
- “I adjust my thinking and behavior.”
- “I am determined to see every difficult team situation as a learning opportunity.”
These lessons are, essentially, an application course in mindfulness teammate self-training.
Mindfulness is your conscious “thinking” ability to monitor your thoughts in the present while calmly acknowledging and accepting yours and other’s thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
The Right-Minded Teamwork Choice Model teaches that mindfulness is “your desire, willingness and ability to change your attitude and behavior in order to effectively respond to difficult team situations.”
The terms mindfulness and thinking, in these seven lessons, are virtually synonymous.
