The Adult Contract

The Adult Contract is committing to the following phrase and key points:

“We agree that we are all adults here.”

We would all like the same things from our work

  1. An enjoyable and rewarding environment
  2. A place to learn and grow
  3. Career and Financial Opportunities

Adults Don’t:

  1. Snipe each other
  2. Hide problems
  3. Argue with reality

Adults Do:

  1. Respect one another
  2. Help one another
  3. Protect their home and family

This comes from the book “Ownership Thinking” by Brad Hams. It may be the most crystal clear direction for how to work in teams. Follow the adult contract and call out those who do not.
