18F Handbook: 18F has always been committed to transparency. I tend to watch a lot of their moves and their handbook is full of gems, like how to do one-on-ones effectively.
Basecamp Handbook: Basecamp has a wonderful idea for having people get to know each other, which they call 5x12s.
Gitlab Handbook: Gitlab has lovely tips on how to work remotely.
Valve Handbook: Valve (a game company) has illustrations! It’s actually pretty old and some people hated it, but I appreciate that it seeks to answer some simple questions.
Atlassian Handbook: And a tip from a friend, Atlassian has a great handbook, with a section on “the source of your misery” at work and how to tackle it.
A favor and some good news
I do this newsletter in my spare time, which yes, explains the fact that I sometimes miss a week or am sending this week’s a day late. I’d love for you to share it with someone, or forward a cool edition to a friend. There’s a subscribe link on our web site.
I should also mention that this newsletter is now syndicated through a friend’s amazing publication for female entrepreneurs, Lioness Magazine. I don’t make any cash off of that. If I ever make money from this community, I will tell you. I promise.
