I am in the same boat! It’s the most wonderful tool. :-)
Avra Bossov

Airtable is a great tool as well!

Can I book a personal Asana tutorial with Shannon please
mmendez
24:27
Any thoughts on Asana v. Slack?
julia levy
25:16
Slack is good for in the moment conversations, but I’ve found it hard to track tasks
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
25:29
I would say they are not the same — Asana is a much more robust project tool — but Slack is more for instant communication
Sofi Hersher
25:49
FWIW, we’ve integrated Slack AND Asana together, which is working well
mmendez

thank you!

What kind of training and onboarding do you provide to new team members to get them on board with how you use these tools?
Abby Leibman

we are finding that people are exhausted by day’s end after many zoom meetings. any tips on how to limit this?
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
30:19
That’s a great question — we can flag it for later in the webinar as I think we have some content not hat!
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
30:22

I just had a panicked email from a member who has never er used Zoom, said she doesn’t have an iPhone, and is afraid to try my Zoom meeting next week. How can I move her forward?
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
31:55
This is the article I just mentioned: https://ejewishphilanthropy.com/10-critical-insights-for-successful-online-gatherings/

Myra, I would set-up a 1x1 phone call with her to troubleshoot a few days in advance. Then move to a test Zoom meeting. Zoom also has a call-in feature for folks not comfortable with video.

Have to fun to another meeting (lol), but thank you for hosting this! Very helpful!!
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
38:35
Great to see you Avra! Thanks for joining us.
Avra Bossov

*run - Oy!

we’ve had mixed experience in encouraging shout outs between team members — inevitably those who work more “behind the scenes” get left out, which clearly is hurtful
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
46:13
Abby, perhaps that’s a time to encourage a public shout out (behind the scenes)?
Meredith MacKenzie
46:32
@abby leibman - one of my favorite podcasts focuses specifically on behind-the-scenes people when they shout out. Its called “this week’s unsung heroes”
Abby Leibman
47:05
more typically I make certain to include them. good to know about these ideas, thanks!
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
47:25
Love that idea, Mer! Thanks for the rec.

Remote employees are also worried that their bosses don't think they are working
Lisa Silverberg
48:50
(if their org was not remote before)
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
49:37
So true. I made a decision to not worry about that. It was a hard decision button the end, if we bring on great people and are clear about expectations, they will get projects done.
Lisa Silverberg
51:22
Yes, ideally everyone would have You as a boss, then they would not have to worry about that!
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
51:50
HA!

One thing that we’ve started doing at our org is a virtual ‘water cooler’ meeting for 20 minute every day for th staff to come together and catch up/chat, etc. It’s optional and opt-in, but works great for those of us thirsting for more contact.
Abby Leibman
53:22
I think one idea for that Lisa is to take the initiative to regularly update your supervisor or boss on what you’re doing — it puts more burden on the employee but I know as a CEO i don’t often know what everyone is doing and/or what roadblocks have arisen and if they share with me, i feel so much better about them
Meredith MacKenzie
53:44
Second the water cooler, it has been a light time when we can all joke together, we’ve been missing that culture
Lisa Silverberg
53:55
Thanks Abby

Can you say more about how office hours works on zoom of people coming in and out
Meredith MacKenzie
58:12
Omg I miss lattes.
Abby Leibman
58:46
I’m thinking of hiring a virtual executive assistant. Any advice on using them or where to find them??
Sally Heaven

Assume ignorance before malice (or as my spouse says, assume positive intent) is SUCH a great value to instill especially when teams are distributed. Tone is more difficult in text/email, coupled with people being more stressed in general lately. Love it!
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
59:21
Abby: We love Jessica Musa — she has capacity for other clients. You can reach out to her at Jessica@greatergoodstrategy.com. She’s our VA and a GEM.
Abby Leibman
59:45
thank you Emily!
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
59:51
Oh yes, Sally! So true. (I always forget this and so appreciate Shan’s reminder.)
Alexandra Suchman

One key component underlying everything you have mentioned on this call is INTENTIONALITY. In every aspect of how you run your business and manage team members, you have been super intentional about what experience you want them to have, and what outcomes you want to achieve. That's such an important ingredient in success!
Sally Heaven

For people who are missing lattes, here's a DIY coffee drink to try: dalgona coffee. https://www.latimes.com/recipe/dalgona-coffee

I have a question if we have time
Shannon Powers
01:01:51
yes!
Sally Heaven
01:05:45
So important! Onboarding sets the tone for the entire work experience. Very great to prioritize.
Abby Leibman
01:05:48
i have one
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
01:06:45
One flag here: most of us are doing this virtual work set-up for the first time. We ALL got new jobs within the same week.
Jess Champagne
01:07:43
Thank you for this! I'm running to one of those competing demands that suddenly woke up but wanted to send appreciation.
Jill Jacobs
01:07:51
I have a culture related q if there's time
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
01:09:11
Jill, I think we can get to it!
Lisa Silverberg
01:09:11
I'm hearing a lot about exhaustion. I also think some of that is about movement. People have a stillness anchored to their desks. Stretch, stand, do it together or start at 10 minutes after the hour and let people move between calls. Thank you greater good strategy! Super helpful info!
Emily Goodstein (she/her)
01:09:17
Or you and I can chat 1x1
Elana Kogan
01:09:44
Thanks so much for this webinar! I’m excited to see upcoming ones.
