Prison or Classroom: What Team Do You Have?
It’s a little scary to think about your team being a prison, isn’t it? No one wants that; however, those teams are out there. And there are far too many.
The good thing is that you can choose whether your team feels like a prison or a classroom where you and other teammates can grow and thrive.
Whether you are aware of it or not, your thoughts are constantly determining how you choose to behave with teammates. Thoughts produce your behaviors, which in turn, can turn teammates into classmates or prisoners who work alongside of you. It’s that simple, 100% of the time.
Therefore, the truth is: you create the prison or classroom. What’s on the outside of you is a reflection of what’s going on inside you.
When you’re upset, the natural reaction is to attack in some form or fashion. When you’re upset, it is difficult to accept that what you’re experiencing on the outside is essentially a mirror image of what is going on inside of you. While this is difficult to accept, you’ll be much better off if you do because you cannot find the best solutions when you are troubled.
Here are Reason’s seven lessons for transforming your team into a joyous classroom. This transformation is summed up in one sentence, with special emphasis on just three words. Right-Minded Teammates ACCEPT , FORGIVE and ADJUST their thinking and work behavior.
