The Dominant Gene is a business novel series about the journey to becoming an Agile leader. At the highest level, an Agile leader is fearless; not afraid to serve others, to learn daily, and to sense and adapt to uphold quality and customer value. Each journey is different, because we are from all different industries, backgrounds, and corporate cultures. No matter your journey, you can be assured that the ride will be undulating, time consuming, and very personal. And, you will learn that the destination is not the end, but the beginning. The Dominant Gene offers an up-close view into one leader’s quest to become an Agile leader: the struggles, victories, and learnings. You’re invited to join Joel as he grows from comfort and complacency to an Agile leader. It is my hope you will be entertained, disturbed, and motivated to end your comfy world of complacency, and begin to grow. When it gets hard, when you feel like quitting, remember you are not alone; you have me and an entire Agile community here to help. Reveille, the first book of The Dominant Gene series Joel is an IT director at Watzka Legacy, the technology arm of a large, American corporation. In Reveille, the first book of The Dominant Gene series, Vice President Lora informs Joel and two of his peers that they must commit to Agile leader coaching, because the company is “going Agile.” Effective immediately, Joel is assigned to Eve, an experienced master coach, with a practical side. But Joel doesn’t believe he needs to change. His career and things at Watzka Legacy are going just fine. To make matters worse, all Eve seems to want to talk about is Lean leader standard work. Where is the Agile in this Agile coaching? Over hot drinks at a local café, Eve reveals to Joel that his career at Watzka Legacy is definitely not fine. In fact, his unexpected awakening is all at once exhilarating and disturbing, and is occurring in many parts of his life. Join Joel on his undulating journey to becoming a better leader, an Agile leader.
