Unfortunately, saying thank you seems to be an after thought more and more. So at least once a month, I will take a few minutes to publicly appreciate someone that has had an impact on me.
I have been so lucky throughout my career to continuously get to work side by side with people that challenge me, support me, laugh with me and learn with me. That truthfully, I keep expecting my next situation to never be able to top my last. And while there is truth that you can’t compare two situations (apples and oranges), I feel so incredibly honored to continue to be able to say I work with amazing people.
Agile2016 is a wonderful week for me but also as a program chair, a stressful one. These gentlemen, from left to right in the photo: Jake Calabrese, Peter Saddington, and Peter Green, all helped me enormously throughout the week without having to ask once on top of their commitments and stresses to deliver stellar sessions (which they did!).
The best part is that I’m not surprised by the countless ways we engaged, I’m simply proud. Thank you!
Oh…and it cracks me up that it looks like we coordinated our outfit colors in this photo. Kinda wished we all had taken our badges off for just one photo.
