Introducing RoadMap

RoadMap is an app that helps you master the Manager Tools Trinity™ - One On Ones, Feedback, Coaching and Delegation. You’ll start, progress, learn, and measure how you’re doing, all within the Manager Tools mobile app.
You no longer have to keep track of everything you have to do to get better. RoadMap keeps track. You no longer have to go looking for the right bit of guidance. RoadMap gives you guidance when you need it.
Now you can become an effective manager without turning it into another project you have to manage. RoadMap does it all for you.

Why RoadMap?

Because you want to be a better manager. Because we want to help.
You already have enough to do, without the “project” of improving your managerial skills. RoadMap keeps you on track, and takes care of the details for you.
So you can focus on your people, your work, and your results.

How Does RoadMap Work?

RoadMap is an iOS and Android app that contains everything you need to know to rollout the Manager Tools Trinity™ with your team.

“I was very fortunate to come across Manager Tools over 10 yrs. ago and I've continued to listen ever since. I've also attended the in-person training and have purchased multiple products...each has delivered value far in excess of its price. It's rare to find such specific, actionable, and effective guidance...and I usually find opportunities to apply this guidance within days!” Graham Cochrane, Senior IT Manager, TD Bank Group
Licensee only access to our fortnightly podcast on executive effectiveness.

First Job Fundamentals and Effective Feedback as a standard part of your license.
"There might be an art to great management but every day effective management is just the hard work of implementing some best practices. These best practices are the sum of the tools I've learned from Manager Tools over the years."
