The fifth episode of The Coaching Agile Teams Mini-Series features special guest Kory Stamper. The conversation with Lyssa Adkins, Kory Stamper and Leslie Morse twists and turns through a variety of topics all inspired by the ah-ha moment Lyssa had when listening to Kory’s Women in Agile 2020 keynote. It caused her to take a step back and really look at the words she used in the “Coaching Agile Teams” book. Lyssa had already taken note of how militaristic language showed up in her 2010 descriptions of what it took to successfully deliver value, and Kory’s session opened her eyes to an entirely new set of considerations. Spoiler alert, nothing really changed in the book.
Enjoy the dance between moments of lightness and serious inquiry within this episode. You’ll learn more about parts of speech, be exposed to new vocabulary, and be challenged to get curious about how you use language.
