Right-Minded Teamwork (RMT) is an intelligent and empowering teamwork system that guides teams to overcome interpersonal challenges, improve processes, and work together seamlessly to achieve business goals. With RMT, your team can compassionately address interpersonal conflict, regain focus, and produce astounding results.

What Is This Book About?

Written for team leaders and team facilitators ready to create positive, lasting change in their teams, this book teaches two significant Right-Minded Teamwork (RMT) concepts. First, you will read the Right-Minded Teamwork Myth, a short parable illustrating RMT's underlying teamwork philosophy, followed by the RMT Process, a step-by-step approach for implementing RMT in your team.

Reason or Ego?

The Right-Minded Teamwork Myth is a short, simple story that illustrates what "right-minded" thinking and behaving look and feel like. Following three characters, Reason, Ego, and the Decision-Maker, found in each of us, the Myth illustrates the aspirational thought system behind RMT. It advocates for teammates to turn away from Ego's disastrous advice to seek separateness and selfishness and instead follow Reason's path to oneness and shared interest.

The RMT Process is a practical, deliberate, and reliable approach for implementing Right-Minded Teamwork in any team. It includes a set of seven, interconnected, team-building methods. As the first in RMT's eight-book series, this book will teach you how these seven RMT methods form a self-perpetuating, continuous improvement system with the power to transform even the most challenged team.

The Problem with Team Building

Most team-building programs have a problem. They do not address or resolve a team's real issues. There are many common team-building practices, like education, games, and social events, but as far as real team building goes, none of these approaches is effective. Not one of them produces proven, reliable results.

Still, many well-meaning team leaders continue to use these ineffective tactics. Usually, this is because they do not realize there is a better way: a real-world approach to team building.

Do No Harm. Work As One.

Right-Minded Teamwork is a real-world, team-building process that actually works. It is an intelligent, empowering system suitable for teams of all sizes and dynamics. It is the most reliable way to achieve and sustain high-performance teamwork because it directly addresses real issues in a non-confrontational, compassionate way.

Apply RMT, and improve work processes while strengthening teammate relationships.

Apply RMT, and help your team achieve 100% customer satisfaction.

Apply RMT, and make the world a better place.

A Note from Dan Hogan, 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, and 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.

Dan Hogan, CMF

Do you ever wonder what's going on in the minds of others? What secrets, hopes, and dreams are hiding there? Writer and editor Erin Leigh believes those dreams deep inside us deserve to be shared with the world. And what better way to bring those dreams to life than through the art of written language, which exists to be read and shared? As an entrepreneur herself, Erin loves the challenge of finding just the right way to express her clients' brilliance, support their intentions, and bring home their message. As one grateful client shared, "I thought what I wrote was good. Now, it still sounds like me, but it's so much better. It's like you were in my head. You knew exactly what I meant!" Seeing the entrepreneurs, small business owners, and companies with whom she works shine brighter is Erin's motivation; she strives to honor her client's voice in every project. She believes that by lifting them up, they can, in turn, uplift others, who can also impact those around them, eventually elevating us all. She especially enjoys working with spiritual entrepreneurs and those committed to making a difference in the world. When she's not leveraging her linguistic and perfectionistic tendencies to her clients' advantage through writing and editing, you're likely to find Erin reading Harry Potter, swinging on monkey bars, and spending time with her husband, Kev.
