This Month’s Resource Pack

JANUARY: NUTS & BOLTS

Church communicators do a billion things.

It’s fun to talk about web design and social media strategy and bulletin formats, but there are a lot of other aspects of our jobs that don’t get a ton of air time. Most of us lead teams in some fashion, all of us take notes in meetings (you are taking notes on your phone and not scrolling Instagram in your staff meeting, right? Right?), and all of us have a bajillion passwords to remember.

Some of those things may not be super trendy to talk about, but they’re all realities we have to face each day in the 21st century office culture we find ourselves in. This month’s collection of resources is admittedly a little random, but each of these topics are important and worthy of discussion.

Is Slack worth considering for your team? Are you using Google Analytics in a way that is actually helpful? And what about those pesky copyright laws?

Nuts and bolts are rarely in the spotlight, but things and teams fall apart without them. Spend some time this month refining these crucial tools and build a foundation for better productivity, effectiveness, and influence.
