When you find an awesome new tool, you're naturally super excited to get your entire team on board. But sometimes even the best tools can be hard for your team to adopt when they have so much in their tech stack already.
This article explains our two-step plan for getting your team jazzed about giving SoapBox a try 🚀
Step 1: A quick note in email or Slack
Before your next team meeting, send your team a quick ;TLDR of what SoapBox is and how you think it’ll make your team more efficient. Then let them know you’ll send them their invites and will cover more detail about the app in your next team meeting!
Here's a sample of what you could send your team:
📣📣 Exciting Update 📣📣
I’ve found a tool to help us stay organized and make our meetings as efficient and effective as possible! It’s called SoapBox. I’ll go into more detail in our next team meeting but essentially it’s a meeting agenda tool for our one-on-one and team meetings. You’ll see your invite to SoapBox in your inbox soon. If you’re curious between now and the team meeting, you can read more about SoapBox here!
Step 2: Provide additional context in your next team meeting
Set aside some time in your next team meeting, to cover:
- Why your team needs this tool
- What you expect SoapBox will help with and how you want the team to use the tool
- Any questions your team might have about SoapBox or your meetings.
Once you’ve answered any questions, agree that everyone will give the tool a try (this means them adding items, syncing calendars and finishing meetings too, not just you😉) and agree on a date for a check-in to see how everyone is liking the tool!
With these two simple steps, expectations are set, everyone is engaged and ready to rock - and you can watch your meetings go from good to GREAT!💥
