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.
