CEOs need to delegate with confidence

But in meeting after meeting, collaboration breaks down because departments speak different languages: projects fail, silos get built and everyone gets buried in emails. The CEO gets sucked into details and disagreements--and worry mistakes will pop up in a board meeting.

Our terms, tools, training and workgroups help generalists at all levels break through communication barriers to create an unstoppable culture of collaboration.

Collaborate effectively

Our GMs Index of Terms is the universal language of management.  It puts on one screen simple definitions and approved best practices.  It lets everyone share, understand and appreciate each other's contribution, which breaks down silos and accelerates innovation and decision-making.  It's free.

Delegate with confidence

Our GMs Toolkit holds 14 tested 1-page tools that lets cross-functional teams perform and report on their best work.  If everyone uses the same tools, terms and best practices, executives can be confident projects will be on time, on budget and yield the promised ROI.  It's empowering.


  • Engaging remote workers
  • Meeting preparation
  • Strategic planning or project kick-off
  • Workflow optimization
  • Simplifying the org chart
  • Overseeing multiple projects
  • Merger integration
  • Development and succession plans

Dependable resources and career-long connections

"I'd used the Center's Index and Toolkit for planning, so I looked forward to their CEO Roundtable Intensives. I've rarely seen 20 executives as engaged. The Center has the content and contacts I need for growth." - Ed Purcell, President, Vertical Greenwalls
