The initiation of the Blame Game starts with a lack of trust between you and someone else where both are not willing to accept that the other could make a mistake and both are intent on capitalizing on that mistake for their own purposes.
But it doesn’t need to be that way and instead can, and should be built, on the mutual understanding that only together can the best outcome be achieved.
As an example…
You: That didn’t work how I had intended.
Them: Yeah, we should figure out a way to make it better next time.
You: Got Time?
Them: Yeah, let’s do it.
The evolution of the Blame Game is the elimination of the game altogether.
