Your documentation team is your support network, co-conspirator, and ultimate enabler for you to create amazing content. A good team is worth its weight in gold while a bad team can destroy productivity and your documentation reputation. Through communication, vulnerability, and honesty, you can build the type of team that is endlessly supportive and constantly productive.
By considering the philosophical construct of your documentation team: The end goal of your documentation, who are your audiences, who desperately needs your information, and how you encourage your team members to become their best writing selves, you can reduce turn over, enable your team members to explore and enhance their careers, and drive the overall effects of your documentation team to new heights.
It’s a lot of work, but you, and your team, are worth it.
