Part 2 of our updated guidance on how to gradually implement The Manager Tools Management Trinity (One on Ones, Feedback, Coaching, and Delegation). When managers try to implement all the tools all at once it can end in disaster. Most of us can only learn one new significant skill at a time. And that goes for our directs, too: they're learning along with us. This process for implementation will ensure success in your roll out.

We've been asked a thousand questions about how to implement the Manager Tools Trinity. When we first taught the tools individually, you could only learn one from us at a time, so they got rolled out one at a time. Then managers whom we had taught started telling other managers about the tools - usually because their colleague asked them, "what are you doing over there? It seems to be working."

But the experienced Trinity users told those other managers about all the tools all at once. So those other managers started implementing them all at once. And that was a disaster. Most of us can only learn one new significant skill at a time. And that goes for our directs, too: they're learning along with us. Trying to learn 2-3 - or even heaven forbid 4 - new significant skills at the same time is impossible, based on those early results.

So, we started testing different ways to roll out the Manager Tools Trinity. And over a couple of years, we figured out the right timing for each new tool, and the steps needed to introduce each one. And thus was born the Manager Tools Trinity Roll Out.

Step by step, here's how you do it.
