Prepping your week visibly for your team

Prepping your week visibly for your team

Team leads have a lot of different things to work on. Each one of us at Automattic seems to use some form of todo-lists and calendars, but most of these (especially the lists) are personal.

In my talk at our leads meetup in London, I focused on making this process more public to the team in order to build rapport with team members.
