Build team trust and team rapport as your team grows with fun, light-hearted questions.
Why Social Questions?
Trust is essential for a high-performing team. Yet, it can always be tough to figure out exactly how to build trust in a team – especially if your team is remote or is growing quickly. One important part of building trust is simply helping people get to know each other in a personal way. That’s exactly what our Social Questions do: We ask periodic questions that help people find surprising connections with one another, and bring everyone closer together.
How our Social Questions work.
Once a week, bi-weekly, or once a month, we ask a fun, light-hearted question that helps everyone in your team get to know each other better. For example, one week, we’ll ask, “Who was your favorite band 10 years ago?” or “How do you like your eggs?” We give you 300+ questions to choose from, and the question is delivered via Slack or email. After folks respond, everyone can see each others’ answers (and comment and react to it, too!❤️) It might seem innocuous – but it’s a huge hit in a team, often sparking further conversation over lunch or in a Slack channel.
Create common ground.
I’ve had leaders who were extremely skeptical about the Social Question, tell me that after using it, two team members who never got along before then bonded over a Social Question (they both learned they loved carpentry!). Because of the Social Question, they started working better together. Whether you’ve got folks who’ve been on your team for just a few weeks or years – with the Social Question, they finally have opportunities to find commonalities, and work better together.
“As a quickly scaling company, it’s important to automate team building in a personal way. Know Your Team helps us find common ground and surfaces great ideas for how we can improve, together.”
