Effective Manager
Conference

Management basics which will work for you whether you’re a new manager or more experienced. This isn't 'flavor of the month', it's solid recommendations which will transport you from average to great.

  • how and when to communicate with your team
  • practice giving positive and negative feedback
  • discover how to coach your team in just 10 minutes a week
  • master delegating work to get your time back

Effective Communicator Conference

Take the willingness to learn, convert it into a willingness to listen and your relationships will get better, almost instantly. Practice with us, and implement as soon as you get home (maybe sooner).

  • gain understanding about why people act differently than you
  • recognize the behaviors which indicate their communication style
  • improve your communications in person and in writing

Effective Hiring Manager Conference

Wish you only had A-players? One manager told us that since he attended this training, he has only hired A-players. Learn the right questions to ask and what to look for in the answers. You too can have a team full of the best.

  • explore the best interview structure
  • discover the best way to ask questions
  • practice assessing the answers you get
  • make certain you’re going deep enough

The M Conference

The M Conference brings together managers and executives who believe that results and relationships are the keys to business success. Join us for two full days dedicated to growing your career and adding more value to your organization. Or purchase a video only version of our speaker sessions. *All in person attendees will also be given access to video from all speaker sessions*

Learn and Practice Management Skills

We hear from managers like you every day. You want to get better. You want your directs to do better. Or maybe you just want to stop dreading Monday morning. We understand and we can help!

We'll teach you four simple management behaviors that we guarantee will improve your results and retention. And you'll practice them with other managers facing the same struggles and challenges you are. You're not alone and you can get better!
