Back To Basics Ep1
As the new year hits, we traditionally get ready to push to have something new. We start with our resolutions, personal vows, promises, vision boards and tools to help us move forward with gusto.
Let me challenge you; it’s not that any of these are bad but take a moment and pause for the basic step of reflection. We at BeardedEagle are committed as an organization to get “Back to Basics,” to look at the simplicity of everyday living that is so often overlooked with our drive to succeed and aspirations to do more.
When we took a moment to look back at the basics, we were surprised that the gems we discovered were there all along. In our haste and need to constantly be in motion, the gems were overlooked in the busyness of being busy. We looked at the values and principles that we hold dear; the Agile Values – individuals and interactions over processes and tools. We can get so bogged down aiming to make better tools and more efficient processes that we forget the simplicity of making it about the individuals and the interactions they need to have with others. Yes, we said need because none of us is an island everyone needs someone. When we paused and asked ourselves how we could make life better for each person we touched through our workshops, travel, consulting and coaching we found ourselves hitting straight into the Scrum Values Core. Focus.
Your BeardedEagle Family looks forward to reacquainting you with the basics in 2019. We will produce a series of videos and articles that will help you push the REFRESH button, so you and your team can get, “Back to Basics.’
Happy New Year!
Lizzy Morris and the BeardedEagle Family
