9 Ground Rules

In Action

Ground Rule #1

The Problem

Adversarial Relationships Prevent Solving Problems

The Solution

No Complaining At All Until Willing To Take Action.

What it Looks Like

  • The thing you are complaining about is the very problem that needs to be solved.

  • Valuable time and energy could be spent solving problems.

  • Every time you complain about someone or something, you cement the core cause of the problem instead of solving it.

  • Venting is complaining

Ground Rule #4

The Problem

Animosity Exists Between Workers, Management, And Teams

The Solution

Stop Talking Behind Backs

What it Looks Like

  • Go directly to the person to calmly resolve problems, without blame

  • If you find yourself complaining to someone about someone else, STOP and go to the right person

  • If someone comes to you triangulating about someone else, STOP them and direct them to the right person

  • Going directly to the person makes you aware of their true motives, instead of speculating on motives

Ground Rule #8

The Problem

Management Has To Deal With The Same Problems Over And Over

The Solution

Be Clear With Commitments, And Always Keep Them

What it Looks Like

  • Be accountable for your own actions.

  • Respectfully challenge others on your team when their actions violate the ground rules.

  • Model how to improve.

  • Set the expectation that everyone does what they say.

Change Requires Courage.
Transform Your Team.
