Being productive while collaborating

With a lot of moving pieces, collaborating with a group of people can be tough. Everyone has to be on the same page, working together, and efficiently. UK-based insurance company Simply Business has a few tips on how to make sure you keep the ball rolling by asking five questions:

  1. Do you find it hard to give feedback?

  2. Do you find communication across different locations difficult?

  3. Do you often end up trying to email large files to people?

  4. Do you find gathering feedback ineffective and time-consuming?

  5. Do you resort to long email chains to manage projects?

Each question has an answer, and that answer is a worthy solution to helping you get stuff done in the form of articles, links, and videos. Check out the link here, and -- who knows? -- maybe you'll find something in it you like.

And last but certainly not least, we'll be participating in Simply Business' Productivity Series, a collection of interviews from productivity experts around the internet on how they stay productive. So keep your eyes peeled!
