Inspire team confidence

Getting your team to use a new tool can be challenging. You might run into questions or hesitations along the way. Here are some ways to help your teammates feel confident in using Asana, and to remind them why your team chose it.

What you might be hearing:

  • The current way we work is fine
  • We have so many other tools we don’t even use

Ways to help you and your team:

  • Remind your teammates that, unlike other tools, Asana makes responsibilities and next steps clear so that everyone knows what they should be doing, and why.
  • Solve a current pain point with a new workflow in Asana, and help your teammates to translate everyday workflows into Asana.
  • Add a task to your weekly team meeting to discuss how your team is doing with Asana.
  • Update your project statuses regularly to inform your team about progress and cancel a recurring status meeting, or make it less frequent.
  • Demonstrate how Asana fits in with tools you are already using.
  • Share ideas and discuss any open questions with a project or team conversation.

What you might be hearing:

  • I don’t want to have to learn something new
  • It looks too complicated or technical
  • My work doesn’t map well to tasks

Ways to help you and your team:

  • Share the Asana product tour video. Your teammates can watch the whole thing, or skip to relevant chapters.
  • Direct them to the quick start list, to get up and running quickly in Asana.
  • Show your teammates how their everyday workflows can be done in Asana.
  • Use an Asana-created template for a common workflow so they can see how to build a project and start it off on the right foot.
  • Start using Asana for a team meeting or a one-on-one meeting to get your teammates comfortable with how Asana works.
  • Schedule time or office hours to show teammates how to use Asana.

What you might be hearing:

  • I’m afraid I’ll mess things up
  • I’m unsure if I’m using Asana correctly

Ways to help you and your team:

  • Establish and share team conventions. You can create a project to set up your team’s conventions and keep them in Asana as a reference.
  • Create an Asana project for questions about using Asana that any teammate can add to.
  • Designate a team champion to help answer questions and guide teammates.
  • Explore opportunities to use Asana in cross functional or company wide workflows.

Taking time to review the reasons why you chose Asana and addressing team questions on a regular basis reminds everyone of the benefits of tracking work in Asana. Asana is all about teamwork, so nobody should get left behind.
