As I've progressed through my career I've watched companies reduce the amount and types of education offered to employees. More and more companies offer training on technical, "hard" skills only. When I first became a manager at IBM in the 80's we went through multiple classes that taught us how to manage employees. Not only from the viewpoint of enforcing company policy but how manage them as individuals. The training wasn't theoretical but practical, actionable advice on how to have real conversations and how to document our interactions with employees. Manager Tools is the place to get management training today. If you want to learn how to manage effectively, how to actually have that next conversation with your employee, this is the place to learn those skills. The Manager Tools team has done an excellent job of taking management theory and turning it into a series of lessons on how to be an effective manager.
