The 9 Right-Minded Choices
- Make the Right-Minded Choice. There is no difficulty in making a right-minded choice once your team has committed to achieving Right-Minded Teamwork.
- Oneness or Separateness. Choose to behave as one unified team. Your team will not live oneness perfectly at first, but making a wholehearted commitment is the first step. Be patient. Persistently move toward your team’s definition of Right-Minded Teamwork by conducting team-building workshops once every three months.
- Right-Minded communication – ends separateness. Right-Minded communication is effective and kind. It flows effortlessly from those who are committed to and who actively live the first two choices above.
- Meaningful Vision – making your team’s dream come true. A meaningful team vision provides the context for choosing right-minded behaviors and your team’s continuous-improvement operating system.
- Work Agreements – bring people together as one. A team that actively lives its Work Agreements is a team that has established an environment in which teammates forgive past mistakes in the present, which increases the likelihood of the team achieving its full potential in the future.
- Critical Few—no more full plate; complete important tasks first. Right-minded teams complete their critical few tasks first.
- Mistakes Happen—correct them; don’t punish people. Correcting mistakes is natural and safe for right-minded teammates because they know that doing so is one of the most sensible ways to learn.
- Conflict Happens—go to the playground, not the battleground. When team conflict occurs, and it will, right-minded teammates rise above the battleground and then offer constructive solutions.
- Recognition—makes it easier to keep going. Giving and receiving authentic recognition for a job well done feeds team spirit and fuels Right-Minded Teamwork processes.
