Act like a consultant

  • Get on the balcony to look at issues
  • Don’t take positions; discuss interests

Adopt and go

  • Understand how you do it and how they do it
  • Don’t waste time arguing about whose way is the best way
  • Pick a way that will be least disruptive… and go!

Respect each other and the process

  • Realize that there are different “realities” and respect the differences in perspective
  • Focus on the problem, not the person
  • Respect the fact that this opportunity is greater than any of our individual needs ...
