King of Anything
Sara Bareilles, whose music I have enjoyed, has a new song: King of Anything.
I think you will like it.
You might be asking: Why is he talking about this song here?
And the answer: In work, we must recognize the importance of freedom and self-organization. For their own sake (these are human rights, after all). And because work actually gets done better if we recognize and operate on those principles (And we do things at an equal level of professionalism).
Some of you will recognize that these are, in one way or another, also key principles of Lean-Agile-Scrum.
So, as we all make mistakes, watch out for when (not if) you treat others as though someone died and left you king. The people that we do this to (we must forgive first, ourselves; we are only human), they are usually too kind to sing us this song, or their version of this song.
