Announcing: A Guide to Sharing Info in Teams for Managers and Employees 📝


From data of 15,000+ people, and studies over the past few decades, I pulled together best practices for sharing info (e.g., decisions, institutional knowledge, progress, vision) in a team.

Dear manager or individual contributor who wants their team to work well together,

People can’t do good work unless they have the context to do the work well.

The big question is, “How?” What are best practices for sharing info within a team— without taking too much time and bogging them down?

To answer this, I pulled data from 15,000+ people who use Know Your Team, sourced conversations from almost 1,000 managers who are a part of our Watercooler leadership community, conducted an in-depth survey on sharing information with 355 employees and managers, and researched studies from the past few decades. The result are these guides.

In these guides, you’ll learn…

  • The tangible advantages to sharing info in your team well
  • The most important info to share and not share in your team
  • 3 best practices for sharing your team’s vision
  • 7 helpful considerations when sharing progress across your team
  • 5 ways to communicate and share decisions within your team
  • 6 ways to document and share institutional knowledge effectively
  • How transparent you should be with your team as a leader

To get access to the Guide to Sharing Info, you’ll want to check out Know Your Team — our software to help you become a better leader.
