My comments on “personal agility” published in recent days by Agile University and the Cutter Consortium have people begging for more (so they can make up their mind about attending Knowledge Team Leadership of course!), so let’s speculate about what comprises your Personal Agility Quotient . . .
Here are four candidates for indicators of your Personal Agility Quotient.
Rate yourself on the following from low = 1 to high = 5.1.
1. Responsibility Practice
Score yourself a 1 (Low) if all problems, barriers, failures and anything else that’s not quite right around you can be attributed to the incompetence, dysfunction, or extenuating circumstances that surround you.
Score yourself a 2 if problems, barriers, failures and anything else that’s not quite right around you can be attributed to your own poor choices or to your hands being tied, i.e., limited choices.
Read the rest of this eTip online, then . . .
What other indicators of personal agility would you add to this list? Offer your entry or other comment and be sure to include some behavior-based ideas (i.e., “Score yourself a 1 if . . .”) about how to score against your indicator�
