In your Slack Profile you should notice a field called “How I like to work”. We use this to link to a document where we write up how we like to work. Check out a few peoples profiles and read how they like to work.
Chris put together a template to write your own: https://gist.github.com/jazzsequence/e49e38ba4430545966f7c1e90ad020bf
Simply fork that to your own GitHub and then edit.
Some cool uses for “How I like to work”
- Starting a new project? Read the “How I like to work” docs for the rest of your team.
- Giving someone 360 feedback? Read their “how I like to work” doc and see if it matches up to your experience of how you’ve seen them work.
- Unsure when someone will be around to respond to your message? Check the doc.
- Not sure how to interpret something someone has written to you? Perhaps they say something about their communication preferences in their doc that could help?
