Most team-building programs have a problem. They do not address or resolve a team’s real issues and work challenges.
The The model is a teaching aid that helps your team choose a set of unique, “right” teamwork attitudes and behaviors. More is a practical, effective, real-world, team-building tool. It teaches teammates how to address and resolve actual team issues in an accountable, productive way.
What Is This Book About?
When difficult team problems occur, teammates have two options: become an ally, or become an adversary. When you are an adversary, you are a victim or a victimizer, always pointing the finger at others. When you choose to be an ally, you work collaboratively with your teammates to achieve team goals. You demonstrate positive and accountable work behaviors.
This book and the Right Choice Model will guide you to create a team of productive, supportive, Right-Minded teammate allies.
Is This Book for You?
This book is written primarily for team facilitators. However, team leaders and teammates are also encouraged to use the Right Choice Model and teaching aid to create powerful, effective, Right-Minded teams that do no harm and work as one.
I know this statement is true for most of the eight books, but I think one is written for teammates, right? Was it this book? If so, we will want to tweak this sentence
What Is “Right” in Right-Minded Teamwork?
Right-Minded Teamwork (RMT) is a business-oriented, psychological approach to team building where acceptance, forgiveness, and adjustment are teammate characteristics, and Creating 100% customer satisfaction is a primary goal of Right-Minded Teamwork. More is the team’s result.
The concept of “right” in Right-Minded Teamwork and the Right Choice Model has nothing to do with right-brain thinking or right-wing viewpoints. It is about what your team, together, decides is “right” for you. Your team’s preferred way of being and behaving, identified as a set of collective teamwork choices, defines your team’s Right-Minded attitudes and work behaviors.
Another RMT book, Reason, Ego & the Right-Minded Teamwork Myth, illustrates the origin of the Right-Minded Teamwork philosophy and Right Choice through the tale of three characters, Reason is a mythological character and symbolic guide who shows you how to think and behave in a Right-Minded way. As your Right-Minded teacher, Reason helps you differentiate and choose between Right-Minded and wrong-minded attitudes and behaviors. More, Ego is the negative, wrong-minded teacher who continually tells you how difficult the world is and how you must constantly fight to survive. More, and the The Right Choice Model uses the term “Decision-Maker” to describe the part of you that chooses to listen to and follow either the wrong-minded ways of Ego or the Right-Minded ways of Reason. More. Simply put, teammates are encouraged to follow Reason’s path to Oneness is a psychological state of mind. It can be described in many ways using phrases such do no harm, and work as one. More and shared interest instead of following Ego’s disastrous advice to seek Oneness is a psychological state of mind. It can be described in many ways using phrases such do no harm, and work as one. More and prioritize selfishness. Following Reason is the Right Choice every time.
How the Right Choice Model Works
Usually introduced during a team workshop, the Right Choice Model consists of an “upper loop” and a “lower loop.” Both are captured in the Model’s graphic illustration, explored in this book. The upper loop of the Model describes the cycle of successfully addressing problems using Right-Minded behavior and accountability. The lower loop describes the ineffective cycle of wrong-minded victimization.
The Right Choice Model also contains an important, Right-Minded question for teammates to use when difficult situations arise. This crucial question can be distributed as a physical resource by handing out the printable Right Choice cards that come with this book. Along with the definition of Right-Minded accountability found on the back of the printed cards, this question gives teammates a way to apply the Right Choice Model day in and day out to make positive, team-oriented choices.
This book explores the key concepts behind the Right Choice Model and contains three approaches for integrating Model into your team.

A Note from Dan Hogan, Co-Creator of RMT
As I write this, RMT is, to my knowledge, the only model of its kind. However, I pray it is not unique. I hope one day real-world methodologies like RMT become the prevailing team-building approach around the world.
I’m optimistic this future is on its way because I know I’m not alone in wishing for it. Though I’m now retired from active facilitation, for decades, I served teams around the globe as a Certified Master Facilitator. I repeatedly heard my clients express the same desire I had: That this kind of approach to team-building would become commonplace, for the betterment of everyone. They were changed by our work together and what they learned, and many of them went on to share RMT’s concepts and principles with others.
Through them, the ripple effect began. Through you, it can continue. Together, with the help of RMT, we will build teams that do no harm, get work done, and work as one.
