If I could give you 1 piece of professional success advice, it would be this: get the right results and get exceptional results. The irony of results? ...we always get results, they just may not be the ones we want!

So, what results do you want? Do you start each day having those identified? Well...your answer to these questions, along with the learning bites provided below will help you get what you desire.

Remember, each learning bite or theme has enough power to make all the difference. It's all about doing 1 enough to get the outcome.  That's the power of the 1%.

Management Effectiveness

In the spirit of the 1% Philosophy to follow are some learning bites to get you started.  I'll be adding to this list on a regular basis - so certainly check back. 

All links are password protected and the topics are a compliment to The 1% Edge Workbook, which you received in your group of bonus gifts. I recommend you use it.

Coaching Tip: It only takes the application of 1 tip to make the difference. Apply it long enough to get results!

START HERE: DOWNLOAD - What I Wish Every Manager Knew - this is a great reference that can serve as a summary to the lessons provided.  Use this as a knowledge checklist.

The You Factor
This section is presented under the premise that behind every great team is a great coach. Who you are on the inside will dictate what kind of manager-leader you'll be on the outside.

Learning Segment: Laying the Foundation
(Use a "learning segment" as a mini-course)
This section of lessons is what I call setting the stage.  As a reminder, each lesson is built to be a stand alone as well as build upon one another. Each lesson is built to help in a shift in thinking, build your knowledge base, or give you a how-to in addressing a need. Each has value for the whole of nurturing your management competency. Even if there is a little of over lap, it's all in the spirit in the princples of Adult Learning.
