Guides to Become a Better Leader

Access 80+ chapters on leadership best practices, based on data from 15,000+ people.

Practical, data-informed tactics, not overgeneralized platitudes.

Management books don’t cut it. Their fluffy generalities and lack of examples don’t help you learn.

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.

Here are the Guides you get access to in Know Your Team.

Our 50+ chapters, based on data from 15,000+ people include: 

  • Guide to Managing Remote Teams (download for FREE here)
  • Guide to Running Effective One-on-Ones Meetings
  • Guide to Giving Honest Feedback
  • Guide to Building Trust in a Team
  • Guide to the Foundations of Leadership
  • Guide to Getting Honest Feedback
  • Guide to Sharing Info in a Team
  • Guide to Shifting Culture


All your team members also get an “Employee Version” of each guide, specifically written for individual contributors.

Reading isn’t enough:  Merge theory practice.

I hate to break it to you:  You won’t become a better leader by reading our educational guides, alone. You’ve got to apply what you’ve learned, talk about with peers what’s working and not, and understand what other leaders in other companies have done.

We help you do this. Know Your Team combines theory with practice with our tools to help you run better one-on-one meetings, get team feedback, share status updates, and build rapport – and giving you access to our online community of 1,000 managers, The Watercooler.

“The information is succinct, fresh and without fluff.”
