Continued Brilliance from Manager Tools

Mark and Mike continue to knock it out of the park. I listened to them years ago and often shared their assessments wth my leadership team I've caught up with the recent COVID casts, and these are great! Mark always keeps current and relevant, and is clearly a world-class though leader in Management and Leadership.

My favorite podcast. Period.

As of 2020, I am coming up on 13 years as a Manager Tools manager. I actually got a *better* job during the tough economic downturn in 2009 by practicing this advice. I love starting my work commute each Monday morning with a new Manager-Tools episode. This is targeted, useful and entertaining stuff! This is the real, specific advice on how to be better at every aspect of management. Heck, the advice works for 'real' life, too. A podcast devoted to the proper way to shake hands? Yep, they've got that. Great, great stuff here.

Excellent advice

The cast has been going on for awhile, so there is a lot to catch up on. That said, this is great information that every manager or person who wants to be a manager should consider. It's a great resource and if you are looking for the answer to a question, they probably have a cast on it. Start with the Manger Tools Basics podcast feed to get the fundamentals.
