Ever wish your team would get on one page?  We are the one page.

Miscommunication wastes at least 10%* of time and payroll.  It's the key reason projects fail and people quit. Silos build and collaboration falls apart.  But people love to work on something bigger than themselves.

The General Manager’s Toolkit includes fourteen 1-page tools for planning, analysis and project management written in our standard language. It is constantly refined by hundreds of managers in all types of organizations.  Our members dislike complexity and constant reinvention.

The General Manager’s Index puts on one screen a common-sense hierarchy of definitions, rated resources and best practices. More than a library, it is the standard framework for practical decision-makingThe GM’s Index lets everyone appreciate each other.

"The Center’s Management Self-Assessment tool provided extraordinary results. After the short training, our team spotted both gaps and strengths and then agreed quickly on the priorities. It was a morale boost: one manager said, ‘Now I see how what I do helps you guys!’" - CEO of the Dean Foundation

Our mission is to foster practical and rewarding collaboration in the workplace.

Collaboration requires everyone sharing simple tools written in a standard language.  We train people with general management responsibilities to use these tools and terms, and we support them throughout their careers

New general managers:
Team training in core decisions terms

Experienced managers:
Individual coaching in complex decisions

Chief executives: 
Peer discussions and strategic planning

Collaborate effectively and delegate with confidence

You can build a lasting culture of collaboration when everyone uses the same tools and the same language. It's a culture that continually improves, attracts talent and sparks innovation--and "soft skills" problems fade.  You become unstoppable. 

From the executive's perspective, using a consistent set of tools and terms makes it easier to delegate with confidence, freeing time for planning and growth projects.  Each of our tools is also a report, so everyone can focus on the right information at the right level.

We help people achieve great things together.
