Controversial Feedback on the letter of Olympian Courtney Thompson: "8 Reasons no one cares you’re tired"

"Note to Coaches: As you've probably noticed already, sometimes your athletes need to hear a different voice than yours; and who better than an Olympian?

about responsibility and what it really means

When we talk about agile transformations in a company or an organization, we tend to see the “New Way of Working” (which is actually not that new, so it’s incredible that “The Agile Way” is still not widely established), as providing more freedom to solve problems, get to agreed understandings and decisions, and to deliver user needs. We tend to think of the rights we recover as knowledge workers and innovative human beings. But what we forget is that all of these rights and freedoms come with more responsibilities.
