Working remotely and getting to know your colleagues


As the world get used to working in their bedrooms, so have tools evolved to support this new way of work.

I came across the incredible resources that Atlassian have made available for free:

The article with the "User Manual" really resonated with me:

It allowed me to get to know my colleagues a bit better, including their working styles, but also allowed me to share a bit about myself.

This way allowing us as colleagues in the Product Team to get slightly closer even though we are miles apart (literally across oceans)

Never-the-less I thought I'd share a snippet of my user manual for #Atlympics.

I even embedded spotify directly onto the page - pretty cool that I could even do that.

So my colleagues can read about my work style, get to know my and even get to vibe out to my work mix while doing so :)

Below you can see the page and the flexibility that is confluence

Here's the link to the playlist

@Guillaume De Smedt Thanks for sharing! This is great. My User Manual is one of my favorites from the Team Playbook. I love learning more about the people I work so closely with.

And I could totally hear you saying "GEEEEZ" when I read your favorite saying 🤣
