Invite your team members to KYT so they can participate.
After creating your team, you'll want to invite your team so they can participate in Know Your Team. Here's how to do this...
Visit the "Home" page for your team:
Click on "Add/Remove" to add your team members:
Next, click on the big green button that says "Add team members":
Lastly: You'll type in the names of your team members.
If you set-up the Icebreaker, the Icebreaker will be attached to the bottom of the welcome note you send via email.
✨ Tip: We highly recommend customizing this welcome note, so KYT feels like a genuine effort coming from you.
Here are a few examples...
"I want to become the best leader possible for you – and truth be told, I need all the help I can get. I'd love to become better. As a result, I wanted to use an app called Know Your Team to help me – and help all of us – feel more connected and work better together."
"With us now all working remotely, I wanted to invest more in helping all of us feel connected... But in a way that would be fun and non-intrusive as possible. As a result, I wanted to use an app called Know Your Team."
"I haven't done the best job as a leader focusing on how to help the team feel more unified and transparent. As a result, I wanted to use an app called Know Your Team that will help all of us feel more connected and work better together."
After you've customized the welcome note, here's a screenshot of what the welcome note will look like, with an invitation for your team to fill out the Icebreaker:
The email will be sent out within an hour or two of you inviting your team members to your team in KYT.
You're all set!
🎊 Now that you've invited your team members, you'll want to try a few of our other tools as well, such as....
☀️ Build trust with our Social Questions. I'd then recommend trying our Social Questions, which help team members discover unlikely connections about each other. You'll find that the 300+ questions we offer are non-cheesy, engaging, and encourage quite a bit of dialogue. Here's a walkthrough of our Social Questions.
❤️ Align your team with our Heartbeat Check-in. If you're looking to get your team all on the same page, you'll want to turn on the Heartbeat Check-in. It'll ask via Slack or email "What's your #1 focus?" every week (or ask "What did you work on yesterday + what will you work on today?" every day to your team). Here's a walkthrough of our Heartbeat Check-in.
