It’s 2022 and the internet has changed just about everything about how and where we work.

It’s a great time to be building your career! But only if you have the right tools and processes. Some companies are still working the same way they were in 2010 (or, let’s be honest, 1990). No wonder they’re having trouble collaborating with remote and hybrid teams!

If this sounds familiar, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered with templates that make collaboration easy.

With these templates, you can supercharge your team’s collaboration.

Integrate your tools for easier collaboration

Most teams are using too many tools: Slack, email, Asana/Clickup, and Google Docs/Notion. No wonder their collaboration feels chaotic! With integrated feedback, you can see what people are doing, what they have done, and what they will do. It helps everyone stay on the same page and get things done faster. Integrated feedback makes it easier to prioritize tasks, set goals, and focus on the right things at the right time.

Automate your processes for faster collaboration

If you’re a manager, you probably dread giving feedback to your team. It’s a time-consuming process. You have to gather up all the deliverables, find time in the schedule to meet with each employee one-on-one, and then write out some comments. Then when it comes time for that employee to give feedback back, it’s more of the same: finding time for them individually and reading through their notes. There are ways to make this part of your workflow easier, even automatic.

Structure your feedback for clearer collaboration

Instead of feeling unclear about where work stands and what I should do next, have a defined process and workflow to make a document turn into action. Structured feedback helps everyone remain accountable for their work by clearly communicating how and when certain tasks will be completed. By providing structure around how all of your documents progress through your company’s workflow (and where each piece fits), you’ll minimize confusion between different projects, maximize efficiency within departments, and ensure that no one steps on anyone else’s toes while working toward common goals.
