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.

Collaborate effectively

Our General Manager's Index of Terms gets everybody onto one page.  It puts on a single screen a common-sense hierarchy of definitions, selected resources and best practices--and 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.

Dependable resources and valuable connections

"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

Think like a CEO

Our members are leaders and managers who set inspiring goals and get people organized.  Our Index and Toolkit let every department understand and appreciate each other's contributions.  We enable rewarding cross-functional work.

Career development

We train or coach new and mid-career managers in development and succession plans, and we support chief executives in long-term planning.  Membership provides career-long access to peers at every level.  We often create custom training programs.

Low-cost trial

New members often start by clicking through the Index, attending a public workshop or trying one tool from the Toolkit.  Please email or call to discuss how to try these services.

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.
