News about Manager Tools Conferences

Dear Mike -

This week I (Sarah) presented at the Effective Manager and Effective Communicator Conferences in Palo Alto. What made this conference special was that Mark joined us for the EMC day. All of us live in different locations so seeing one another is rare. During the day we chatted about the last time we saw one another; I had a feeling it had been 6 months or so. Mark remembered that the last time we saw one another was in Chicago during our presenter offsite. It didn’t occur to me until later that the presenter offsite was in December 2015. It had been a year since we had seen each other.
Then during the ECC I had an individual ask how we communicate and get together being that we are so spread out. My response was that we keep in touch with video, phone, iMessage and email. As far as ‘getting together’ as a company is concerned, we don’t really. Again, I didn’t see the oddity in this until I realized that I’ve been with Manager Tools since July 2014 and have never actually seen Wendii in person.
At our conferences managers often ask us how they can do one on ones, deliver feedback, coach and delegate to people with whom they spend little to no time? How do they build relationships when they don’t have the opportunity to spend any time together? The answer is simple really, communicate. Communicate so much that you forget when you haven’t seen one another in over a year. Communicate so much that you forget you’ve never actually met in person. Being in the same place at the same time doesn’t build relationships, communicating builds relationships.
Learn how to communicate more at our Effective Manager Conference and how to make the most of that time at our Effective Communications Conference. We can’t help you get in the same room as your directs but we can help you communicate with them in such a way that being in the same room isn’t what brings you together.
