Jeffrey, Squirrel, and I continued our conversation on the Troubleshooting Agile Podcast, with Part 2.
We addressed more of the Modern Management Made Easy principles. Specifically, we discussed the ideas of empathy and value-based integrity.
We had a great discussion about several of the principles in the Modern Management Made Easy books:
- Value-based integrity
- Should we even have managers? (I say yes, but I'm just one person.)
- Why frank and direct conversations create better outcomes.
Jeffrey liked the call to action at the end of each book. In the last chapter, I ask the reader to:
- Assess their behavior
- Consider how they might change your behavior first
- And to release the idea of perfection. We can't be perfect, even though we continue to try.
We had a great time.
(If you have not yet read their book, Agile Conversations, I suggest you do. I'm only part of the way through and am enjoying it immensely.)
Hope you enjoy listening to this podcast!
