We’ve trained thousands of leaders, from first-time managers to experienced executives.

If we were sitting with you one-on-one as your leadership and high-performance coach, we’d cover the below actions.

They form the foundation EVERY SINGLE MANAGER can take to immediately become a better boss that people want to work for.

What to do your first month:

Start Here: Listen to Episode #5 – The #1 Most Impactful Management Practice – One-on-Ones or “O3s” (29 minutes).

The #1 most impactful action you can take to immediately improve how you manage people and become the boss people want to work for is to hold at least a 30 minute weekly one-on-one or “O3” with each of your employees.

Enter your e-mail below to immediately get access to the FREE GUIDE, How To Roll Out One-on-Ones or O3s to learn the 5 topics to cover in each O3, learn WHY O3s are so impactful, and HOW to roll them out with a sample introductory e-mail you can send to your team.

ACTION: send out the O3 launch e-mail to your team, followed up by discussing it in your next team meeting


    What to do your second month:

    Listen to Episode #16 – The Second Most Impactful Management Practice – Feedback & Coaching, and practice giving feedback daily.  Coaching will soon follow.

    5 Steps To Give Feedback:

    1. Describe what happened (“I’ve noticed”…from your “video check”)
    2. Describe your perception of the impact (why it matters)
    3. Check for understanding and listen
    4. Clarify next steps
    5. Follow up on the agreed action
