A Baker's Dozen Principles—
Skill Sets for Effective and Sustainable Results

  1. Do no more harm; take away all ammunition; make very few mistakes; seek to understand
     
  2. Thoroughly listen; multi-perspective; small changes = big differences; optimize strengths
     
  3. Presence (i.e., inhabiting the here-and-now moment): Giving attention to support the company's good and to one's good with smooth interactions with co-workers
     
  4. Witnessing (i.e., see ego-mind in presence): Build ego as tool; shed ego as false self
     
  5. Build good will / good faith as the foundation for interpersonal trust and integrity
     
  6. Direct communication (no gossip, hidden agendas or passive-aggressive behaviors)
     
  7. Tolerate conflict and debate with mutual respect and patience for important issues
     
  8. Recognize and practice the three components of commitment-making (i.e., public statement of intention, actions, time/date); clarify what counts as desired "results"
     
  9. Take self-responsibility and self-accountability; release all resistance / extra stress
     
  10. Complete all tasks (Zeigarnik Principle) one at a time; freely let go irrelevant tasks
     
  11. Practice complete communications (i.e., intention, feeling, thought, request/need)
     
  12. Quickly see and clean up harm that results from using inappropriate words/actions
     
  13. Create a company culture of mutual appreciation, gratitude and respect; encourage light humor, fine cooperation, high productivity, a low stress environment, and have fun
