Possibly one of the most frequent things I’d hear from managers who use Know Your Team is:

“I would love to use Know Your Team with multiple teams in my organization… What’s the best way to do that?”

We have the perfect answer for you.

Introducing “Teams” – the easiest way to have multiple teams using Know Your Team.

This means, across teams, more of your fellow managers can hold one-on-one meetings, get status updates, build team rapport, and more. It's the best way to support your managers and ensure they have a consistent methodology to benefit from.

Let’s take a closer look…

Here’s a peek at a sample organization called “Honcho Design” that has multiple teams in Know Your Team:

You can see they’ve got an organization called “Honcho Design”, where they can turn on our KYT tools organization-wide. For example, you can use our Icebreaker, to help everyone get to know each other and onboard new hires, across the organization. They also can use our Social Question organization-wide, so that everyone feels more connected as they work remotely:

Then, you’ll notice each of Honcho Design’s teams has a separate “Team” within Know Your Team – Design Team, Sales, Team, Engineering Team etc. As a manager, you can switch between the teams you’re a part of at any time:

Within a team, each manager can use all our tools – specific just to that team. For example, each manager can use our One-on-Ones Tool. But with “Teams,” managers can now also use our tools across different teams: So the VP of Engineering can hold peer one-on-one meetings using our One-on-Ones Tool with the VP of Design, and also hold skip-level meetings with other direct reports:

Within each team, a manager can also use our Heartbeat Check-in – a daily or weekly status update that’s shared with everyone in the team. The Heartbeat Check-in integrates with Slack too, so it’s easy to stay in-the-know and aligned on what everyone in each team is working on:

Ready to see this live with your teams – and not just “Honcho Design”? Now is an ideal time to try KYT with several (or all!) of your teams.

You can create a brand new team here.

Then, you'll want to make sure you add the corresponding manager to that team.

Here are a few other resources to get the most out of "Teams":

Excited for you and more of your team to benefit from KYT 😄
