On short order the other fingers used for the chords will follow along obediently.

Excruciatingly slow practice is not the answer for everything. Sometimes it is a handicap if the way you are playing slowly is not the best for playing at tempo.
Thank you, Rick. This is very helpful. The 2nd finger leading on the Gm6 makes the shift to Bm happen with less thought. I'll keep on with it.
