Protocols

  • Weekly checkins on Monday
  • Many convos about project. Trying to avoid email.
  • Like your virtual office. Review it at least once a day, although not exhaustively. See below for more on which channels to monitor.
  • Individual mention if you want to make sure someone sees it or if it’s urgent
  • Try to be on it when working and available
