What People Say About Us
"Manager Tools helps you understand the "what", "why", "how", "when", and "who" to be a successful manager and successful in your career." Chuck Tomasi
"The advice in "Building a Network” helped me in my last job search. When I reached out to my contacts I had dozens of referrals in just two days. I felt like a whole army was out there looking with me! Following the Manager Tools guidelines helped me land a great job." Thomas Hausmann
"I have listened to each and every one of the Manager Tools podcasts. To many of them more than once. These have been hours that are very well spent, much more effective than a year filled with evenings of traditional management theory and training." Rob Hooft
"The genius of Manager Tools comes down to this: actionable behavior. Entering management feels like being blindfolded, spun in a circle a hundred times, and then released into unknown terrain as you desperately grope the halls hoping to touch something that seems like the right path. Manager Tools is a step by step instruction in how to navigate that path." Kate Genser
