If you are tired of reading books, taking boring classes, or making beginner mistakes as a leader, Know Your Team is for you.
Know Your Team merges theory with practice. We give you Guides, Tools, and a Community to develop the 3 skills the best managers have: Trust, Honesty, and Context.
Management books don't cut it. Their fluffy generalities and lack of examples don't help you learn. Management trainings don't fit the bill, either. They are time-consuming, expensive, and a one-time thing.
Our written guides are different. You're short on time, as a manager – so we wrote our guides to be breezy, practical, and no-nonsense. Based on data from 15,000+ people, we give you specific techniques you can put into practice immediately the next day.
We currently offer 7 guides that are constantly updated, and will soon add new ones too.
All your team members also get an "Employee Version" of each guide, specifically written for individual contributors.

Create context so your team knows what's going on...
