Play of the month: Take the time to *really* check in with your team (and yourself!) Edited

Kristen Roth Atlassian Team Oct 15, 2020

Hello, Team Playbook fans!

Do you really know how everyone on your team is doing right now? And while we’re on the subject, have you taken the time to check in with yourself? The past year has impacted you and your teammates in unique ways. Taking time to understand and share an individual’s situation has never been more important.

We’ve identified three Work Life Impact areas to reflect on that play a big part in how you show up to your virtual workplace every day. As you share your reflections with your team, you’ll build empathy among the group and identify the support you not only need to provide, but the support you need to receive.

Here's an example of the Work Life Impact Play in action:

By the end of the exercise, you’ll each have identified opportunities for change that will help the whole team thrive.

Feeling inspired to give this a try with your team? Let us know how it goes and share your experience here with other Team Playbook fans. We'd love to hear from you!  

Be well,

the Team Playbook team

I think this is more relevant now with so many of us working remotely.

My team needs to run this play! We have staff coming back from furlough in the U.K so it will be a great way to check in with everyone.

Definitely, @Stuart C ! Be sure to let us know how it goes! 

I think me to be longtime interrview with you about my inspiration which is to get the appropriate English learning framework for a decent teaching for chadian youngs and so my training with AIU .

Altogether it's there my first concern for 2021 year.

Thanks.

"Assume positive intent" is an important part of the play. Even if it wasn't the year that shouldn't be named, it's easy for folks to fall into the trap of paranoia or cynicism during exercises like these, especially if they're not the norm in their organization. 😉

In the example worksheet, I love that "Tilly" wrote, "only six months in so it still feels like I'm onboarding!" Ah, we can all relate...

That's such a great callout, @Dave Liao

Right! Certainly an odd year for all of us. Especially for those who started new jobs!

I know this was a challenge for October, but it seems like this is something we should always reflect and what better time than the start of a new year!  So glad I found this, and plan to give it a try as part of our first 2021 retrospective.

Awesome, @Marianne Miller . Definitely a great way to kick off the new year! Hope the Play goes well with your team. We'd love to hear all about it! 

Just curious to know how impact is changed 1 year ago, 6 month ago and now. 

Personally me, starting to think about office.

It would be definitely be interesting to look at results from this Play at each those different time periods, @Gonchik Tsymzhitov .

John Funk Community Leader May 05, 2021

This is actually a really good idea with life in general. REALLY doing a check in with your spouse or loved ones on a frequent basis as well as remember to check on offsite coworkers, friends, etc.

good one @Kristen Roth 

we have been trying such things in a different form (like casual calls, virtual coffee talks..etc...)
but something like this could make it more quantitative and can give more insights and impact to move on in certain aspects.

It definitely does, @Sudarshan . Let us know how it goes if you give it a try!
