What have you noticed about yourself that you can attribute to Manager Tools?
I had a good laugh today with my team as I used the word "egregious" in a conversation and then again in an email to a union representative. My colleague had to look up the word and my boss asked if I had swallowed a dictionary! LOL Thanks Mark; I'm sure I threw that in because I've heard you use it eleventybillion times ;) Bought me some kudos though!
I admit that I've been using the words "cool", "awesome" and "dude" for many years (I remember a particular occasion about 13 years ago when a recruiter said she started using "cool" because she heard it so often from me.... )
I know that my actions, language and general confidence have improved since listening to MT. In fact, I can solidly attribute the learning I've received through this amazing community to my recent promotion. This week it was announced that after the resignation of my boss, I have been appointed to Senior HR Executive for our organisation (approx 300+ employees) to head up the HR department. It's a role I've been 'acting as if' for a number of years and finally, through persistence, professionalism and hard work it has paid off. All of the senior directors and CEO have personally congratulated me and are looking forward to the new era in HR. What an amazing feeling!
Manager Tools accelerates professional maturity. With the conferences, podcasts, show notes, slides and these forums MT is assisting professional individual contributors, managers and executives of today and tomorrow to follow a trusted work ethic which is sorely lacking in many organisations.
Thank you Mark, Mike, Wendii, Dani and everyone here for such an amazing contribution to improving a society of professional managers and importantly, developing leaders worldwide.
I am extremely proud to be a member of Manager Tools and to be a part of the paradigm shift to a much improved professional world.
