Mind Tools - About us

Celebrating 25 years of Mind Tools

Empowering people to thrive at work for a quarter of a century

Since 1996, Mind Tools’ mission has been simply this: to provide trusted, on-demand resources that help ambitious people to perform, manage and lead with confidence.


Mind Tools has worked with hundreds of organizations, giving business owners the tools they need to make sure their staff are happy, inspired, and stimulated—no employee left behind.


It’s time to reflect on what we’ve achieved, the lives we’ve changed—and the many friends we’ve made along the way.

Mind Tools has transformed people's lives and careers...

The Mind Tools Club has been an important companion and a valuable information source, especially within the constraints of a busy executive life.

I enjoy the format of the information (the workbooks, videos, worksheets & blogs), the ease of use (the online format that is always available), and the flexibility.

The resources are easy to find, which is a huge time saver, rather than searching endlessly for resources on the Internet. And, the monthly fee for Club membership is so affordable

We've not only transformed people but revolutionized learning at major organizations over the years...

It’s more than a platform for us. I think it has become a real extension of our L&D approach, and one that is having an impact on the business.

What we love is that people are accessing Mind Tools in accordance with their own individual needs, and that’s when we know we’ve found a tool that builds the culture of learning and development.

The look and feel was very Booking, and we liked that. We knew it would instil confidence in our employees that this isn’t just a random or generic website, but rather a carefully curated selection of resources that are approved by Booking.com.

The next 25

Join us on our next chapter

“I can’t believe how far we’ve come in 25 years—but sometimes, it still feels like we’re only just getting started. 


Mind Tools has so many exciting plans, projects, and events coming up. But for now, we’re just grateful for the success we’ve enjoyed, the lives we’ve changed, and the people and organizations across the planet for whom we’ve forged a brighter future.


And in the meantime, one for the diary: 2046. We’ll see you then—for our epic 50-year bash! Here’s to the next 25!”
