Collaboration is impossible without a common language
In meeting after meeting, collaboration breaks down because different departments speak different languages. This chronic miscommunication is costly and frustrating: it builds silos and it's the key reason project fail and people quit.
Welcome to the Center
Anyone who has or aspires to have a general management role will understand the importance of speaking the standard language and using the standard tools. This video (1:05) summarizes this breakthrough in clarity, consistency and effectiveness.
Our General Manager's Index of Terms gets everybody onto one page. It puts on one screen a common-sense hierarchy of definitions, selected resources and best practices. That lets people collaborate with rewarding results. It's the framework for practical decisions and career development.
Delegate with confidence
If everyone uses the same tools and terms, senior managers can be confident projects will be on time, on budget and yield a great ROI. Our General Manager's Toolkit holds fourteen 1-page tools that lets cross-functional teams do their work with the best tools possible.
"I'd used the Center's Index of Terms and Toolkit to conduct our planning, so I was happy to participate in one of their local CEO Roundtable Intensive. I've rarely seen 20 executives as engaged! The Center gives us the practical tools we need, and it's a reliable resource for ideas critical to growth and succession." - Ed Purcell, President, Vertical Greenwalls
An unstoppable culture of collaboration
It feels great to be part of a team that did something big. The Center can give you not just the tools, but the experiences that build an unstoppable culture of collaboration.
