Heart in the right place - If someone's heart is in the right place, they are good and kind, though they might not always appear to be so.
Hit the right note - If you hit the right note, you speak or act in a way that has a positive effect on people.('Strike the right note' is also used.)
Left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing - If the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing, then communication within a company, organisation, group, etc, is so bad that people don't know what the others are doing.

Right out of the blocks - This means immediately; at the very beginning. It describes a sprinter blasting out of the starting blocks at the beginning of a short distance race (e.g., 100-yard dash, 50-yard dash).
Tick all the right boxes - To meet or fit the criteria or expectations. For example, "This product ticked all the right boxes for me", or "That applicant's interview didn't go so well; it didn't tick any of my boxes".
