I mentioned this tip briefly in a previous post, but felt it was deserving of it’s own thread - 😱 How smart are you? Reveal your some cool ways/secrets of leadership/management via Asana! - #5 by Jerod_Hillard
As many are well aware, the Multi-homing feature in Asana is one of the most powerful, unique features that limits the redundancy yet allows individuals to show work in more than one place. This feature really came to life for us when we discovered how useful it is for structuring private 1on1 meetings between directs and their manager. Here is the premise of how we use this feature in this way:
As you can see in the image below, we have dedicated sections to capture specific items that are multi-homed. Furthermore, we have standard tasks that also allow us to focus on some elements that don’t correctly correlate to work being performed. Within the body of these tasks we’ll include descriptions, links, comments, subtasks, etc to help track these areas over time. Each 1on1 is handled differently, but through this approach we are always able to make sure the right conversation is being held between us.
How do you manage 1on1s in your business? What Asana features do you find useful to drive the right conversations while maintaining alignment and clarity between reports and managers?
