These eight management tools (most powered by The Emerson Suite TM cloud based and mobile), are designed to help Leaders - Managers and their teams excel. They include:

  1. Effective Decision Making Methods (Who should be in the room)
  2. Buy-In & Committed Decision Making (How to get it when you need commitment & support)
  3. Performance Agreements: align teams, clarify roles and increase accountability for any position (it’s all about results).
  4. Checkpoint Process: coach and mentor your people to success.
  5. Ownership Grid: the cross functional excellence (XFX) tool to reduce team conflict and increase effectiveness by defining roles and assigning clear ownership for key processes, projects and decisions. (Who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Know is on third …)
  6. YOUR Management Style: Adjust your management style to adapt to the requirements of achieving effectiveness in any given situation. (Are you the bull in the china shop? Self-Assessment in advance).
  7. Meeting Designer: Improve productivity by designing and delivering effective meetings that stay on-track and end on time. (Can we reduce the time we waste in meetings?)
  8. Monday Morning Team Action List: Within your team, WHAT must get done, by WHO, by WHEN (major not minor) – increase execution, transparency and accountability.
