3 TOOLS I'M USING TO LEAD A DIGITAL TEAM



I, like many of you, have been thrown into this new world of leading & being part of a digital team and working from home.


These are the tools we are using for my team, Anthem Church staff, in this season:


DAILY ZOOM CALLS

We have greatly increased the frequency of our meetings. We were having a two-hour staff meeting once a week. We are now meeting every day at 9a via Zoom for a 30-minute huddle. At these huddles, we check-in, connect, give assignments, and brainstorm. Since I lead at a church, we are also treating our staff as our small group in this season. We pray together & share testimonies with one another. Our team approach has been let's lead day to day and try not to forecast too far out right now because as we all know....we don't really know what tomorrow may hold.


SLACK FOR INTERNAL COMMUNICATION

We are using the free SLACK option right for internal team communication. I "borrowed" this communication workflow from Carey Nieuwhof & implemented this in our team:

  • Big Things - Daily Team Video Huddle

  • Important & can’t wait till next meeting - Slack 

  • Urgent Questions - Text

  • Important & complicated urgent questions - phone or video call

  • Email - only for interaction with non-staff.


ASANA FOR PROJECT/TASK MANAGEMENT

We are using the free Asana option for project & task management.

The total cost for these three tools with the levels we are at is $0 a month!

For all you newbie digital team leaders and team members, what are you using? What do you recommend? What has been your experience like working on a digital team?
