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
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?
