Right-Minded Choice Cards
Right-Minded Choice Cards help create, nurture and sustain teammate accountability that eventually becomes Right-Minded Teamwork.
Striving for accountable teamwork will ensure behavior is aligned with and supportive of your team’s customer satisfaction plan.
This model teaches that Right-Minded teammates consciously use their desire and willingness to change their mind and behavior, so they effectively respond to difficult team situations.
At the core of their choice is their consistent willingness to achieve this psychological goal. They do that by asking themselves this honest question:
“How did I create, promote or allow this difficult team situation to happen?”
By genuinely accepting their role in the difficult situation and forgiving themselves and others, teammates will more easily adjust their work behaviors to resolve the difficult team situation.
