Your Success Story Begins Here

Mind Tools Helps You Delight Your Managers and Inspire Your Co-Workers. Start Your Journey to Success Now!

You've probably seen a scenario like this play out in the workplace:

Two people with similar backgrounds, abilities and education enter an organization at the same time. They're both given the same opportunities to succeed.

Five years later, one of them has become a senior manager. This person manages teams of people, has the respect of their peers, and earns a generous salary.

Meanwhile, the other one has not advanced far. They're stuck in a dead-end position with little scope for advancement. They're unhappy with the situation and are considering moving on.

What Makes the Difference?

At Mind Tools, we've spent nearly 20 years studying workplace success. What makes some people succeed whilst others don't? Is it ability? Is it luck? Do some people simply have more desire?

From our experience, the difference between people who succeed and those that don't isn't desire, ability, or luck. The difference is that accomplished people take the initiative to equip themselves with the knowledge and tools they need for success, whilst other fail to take action.

And when we say equip themselves, we don't mean through work-sponsored training. In today's economic climate, employers simply aren't investing in long-term skills development. This means the skills that develop a successful career – people management, effective communication, time management, problem solving – aren't getting the attention they deserve.

So, by equipping yourself, we mean taking the initiative to improve your skills and take control of your career. And if you're willing to take this step, there's an incredible opportunity to achieve the success you've always dreamed of.

And guess what? This opportunity is much easier and more affordable than you might think.

"It's given me an overall confidence when I'm dealing with people and more maturity in my work. I find myself able to deal with curve balls better. I find it's a much easier road to go, even if the tasks are challenging I don't have a lot of the hiccups that I had even six months ago."
