  1. Brainstorming - Part 2 (Hall Of Fame Guidance) | Manager Tools

    In today’s fast and flat world, ideas are becoming critical competitive advantages.

    Managers - and many others - need to be good at getting the most and best ideas from themselves and their teams.

    And, if you ask a hundred managers what are some of the tools they might use to generate ideas, the ONLY tool that would get 100 votes is brainstorming.

    The funny thing is, we’ve been in lots of meetings where folks said that what they were doing was brainstorming, but it wasn’t.

    It was solution development, which is a completely different thing.

  4. How to Write a Thank You Note | Manager Tools

    We’ve talked about thank you notes hundreds of times.

    They are fast becoming a nearly lost art.

    That’s too bad, because they are always appreciated.

    We know too many managers and professionals who keep them for years!

    Mark often talks about the basket under his desk full of cards, which he reads when he’s having a bad day.

    It reminds him things are not so bad.

    "Many a friendship — long, loyal, and self-sacrificing — rested at first upon no thicker a foundation than a kind word."

    Frederick W. Faber

    We consider thank you notes a part of every manager’s career and management toolkit.

    Here’s how to write them.

    Additional Note:

    For those of you not close to a stationer or prefer the web, we recommend Crane’s, Dempsey & Carroll, and Mrs. John L. Strong.

    Crane’s is the classic American stationary provider, famous for their paper quality.

    Further, a quick suggestion: a higher rag or cotton content in your nicer stationery makes all the difference.
