Do you ever feel like as a manager:  

  • You’re running faster but not moving closer to your goals?
  • You’re running faster but not moving closer to your goals?
  • Everything is so much harder than it used to be especially for first time managers?

Lately, working hard as a manager is more exhausting than ever. And the more depleted we get, the harder it is to make progress. Stuck in an endless loop of “Zoom, eat, sleep, repeat,” we’re often working twice or more as hard to achieve half as much or less.

No matter what challenges or obstacles we face, there is a better way: instead of pushing ourselves harder, we can find an easier path. “The Manager’s Playbook” offers actionable advice for making the most essential activities the easiest ones, so you can achieve the results you want with your team!
