Isn’t it funny how we’ve come to recognize that stack ranking employees on some curve and assigning them “ratings” with numbers or short letter combinations is absurdly reductionist, as if a person can be summed up in a grade or letter. Yet, when it comes to our own work in the agile / coaching realms, we use short letter combinations to signify complex things.
Being late to the Game of Thrones TV show party, I’ve found it intriguing how Daenerys Targaryen introduces herself sometimes: Queen Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lady of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, Lady of Dragonstone, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons.
Those last three parts describe some of her work and characteristics.
What would your “Game of Thrones” agile title be to more fully express all of you?
