How are non-managers using the tools and information they are getting from Manager Tools?
I'm not a Manager. I am the Individual Contributor that Mike and Mark always discuss in the podcasts. When listening to the podcasts I get both a sense of enthusiasm and relief. I feel that when I do become a supervisor or manager I will have a set of skills that I can develop to help me be effective. What I don't have is a good way to start using these skills now. I'm not really in a place to give feedback or conduct coaching of my peers. My supervisor is interested in MT and may implement some of the practices, but I am his only DR.
I really feel that so far the DISC model is the most directly applicable to my position. Communication makes so much more sense now that I can frame the things I say in that context.
What other things are non-managers putting to use from MT, hopefully moving them to getting into that supervisor or manager position.
