Become the boss you've always wanted to work for.

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.

Guides

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.
