Power

New York State Building by Kjudy Ways to justify power over others:

  1. Divine right
  2. Consent of the governed
  3. The lack of rebellion

Do you feel entitled to the authority you wield over others?

Does your power derive from willing support of those you lead?

Or is consent simply that people show up and do what you say?

About Ken Judy

I am an executive manager, software developer, father and husband trying to do more good than harm. I am an agile practitioner. I say this fully aware I say nothing. Sold as a tool to solve problems, agile is more a set of principles that encourage us to confront problems. Broad adoption of the jargon has not resulted in wide embrace of these principles. I strive to create material and human good by respecting co-workers, telling truth to employers, improving my skills, and caring for the people affected by the software I help build.
