Agile mindset and principles ...

Picture taken from Breaking an Agile Mindset down

As follow up to my two BLOG posts about Rock your components ... and Motherhood and Agile Part II, I had an interview with Eve Simon yesterday.

We did record a 15 minute session around the topics motherhood, leadership and the relation to agile for a Summit that will be coming up later this year. Eve was looking for a father opinion and asked me, as I was the only male participant in her latest workshop and we know each other from previous Future of Leadership Salon events.

It was a lot of fun and I have seen the result today. Always interesting and surprising to see yourself on a video, especially when this is not happening very often. I have realized some areas for improvement and my wife mentioned some topics as well that I should be rethinking for the next time. But in summary open, honest and authentic, what was my main focus and driver 😎.  

With respect to Agile Mindset see the picture on the left, for more details about Agile Principles, see the 12 Principles of Agile Poster as one example. When you review the pictures in more detail and keep Motherhood and Kids respectively Family in mind, you will realize a lot of similarities and commonalities. Just give it a try 🤔.

“The longer we listen to one another - with real attention - the more commonality we will find in all our lives. That is, if we are careful to exchange with one another life stories and not simply opinions.” — Barbara Deming
