    Promote Interdependent Thinking
    “Each player has a position with an assignment, but not so rigid that we observe players “pointing fingers” or claiming “it’s not my job.” Thinking interdependently means shifting from “what’s in it for me?” to “what’s in it for WE?”” – John Murphy

    Pull the Weeds
    “A “weed” is someone who refuses to accept the rules. Weeds make their own rules, undermining team consensus. A weed expects double standards. A weed refuses to share and participate. A weed shifts responsibility to others and rejects accountability. A weed looks upon the rules as an annoyance to getting a job done.
    Do not be fooled. Weeds seem harmless. They may even blossom from time to time. But a weed cannot be trusted. Beneath the surface, it is doing everything it can to take over your garden.” – John Murphy
