A User Guide To Working With You

I communicate more clearly through writing than speech.

I listen more than I speak.

I’m naturally an empathetic person. This is a strength as I’m able to connect and understand others easily. But it’s also a weakness as sometimes I’ll care too much about what people think about me.

These are a few nuances about me and the way I work. It took my managers and colleagues some time to understand this and how to best work with me. It also took some time for me to adapt to my managers and colleagues work style.

What if each person had a written document on how to work with that person? Similar to how if I buy a new device, it comes with a user manual, if I work with someone new, I come with a user manual as well.

Inspired by Julie Zhuo’s A User Guide to Working With You, I’m going to work on my own user guide.
