The Subtleties of Language

Are you an agile coach? A Scrum Master? An Agile Project Manager?

Then I have some questions for you…

  • Do you run meetings or facilitate meetings?
  • Do you drive your project, or do you support and enable your project?
  • Do you assign work or do you track and report progress?
  • Are you in charge or do you serve?

I’ve run into quite a number of folks who have not yet figured out that the language they use both reflects their thinking and communicates their mindset.

I encourage you to consider your role and your purpose, and then consider how your language – both thought and spoken – reflects and affects.
