This month, we’re getting creative with our rituals of reward. Instead of costumes and candy, we’ve scared up some wicked good insights from our maker community about how to show appreciation for all the hard work that happens in the shadows. These docs should do the trick.
The Docket is our version of the staff picks shelf at your local bookstore. Every month, we recommend published docs that we’ve personally read, loved, and copied. See past installments
From Leah, People: Coming off of the biggest internal event in Coda history (Codathon), the Employee Experience team is diving into what worked and what didn’t. One thing that definitely worked? We assembled an all-star project team and had clarity into what each person was responsible for planning and executing. For anyone about to embark on an ambitious project, look no further than Laila’s doc to break down exactly who you need (and what they’ll do) when taking on your next endeavor.
From Alissa, Data science and research: At the heart of my learnings from almost a decade on remote teams: bonding is at its best when colleagues feel seen and heard. But carving out the space and time to do that can be hard. Sometimes, you just need a surefire way to make it happen through a little behind-the-scenes magic, like a ritual or a game. This doc offers the best of both.
From Robert, IT: Depending on the size of the team, keeping up with who is doing what and carving out space for reflection is challenging. K.T.’s daily check-in doc simplifies the daily task-management juggle by creating a single place for both. Plus, you can track your own progress throughout the week and flag help from teammates directly in the doc. So if you're like me, and would prefer to skip the Zoom or email update, give this doc a try!
