Here are some of the tools I provide to help people on their jobs. Typically these are Excel spreadsheets that people can use to track aspects of their work, such as the different tasks they do during the day, or the phrases they use in email that make them sound less certain of themselves.

Get credit for what you actually do.
Don’t de-authorize yourself: learn what not to write.
Check the language you use to evaluate your employees.
