Where We Started

 

In 1996, James Manktelow was working as a developer in financial software when he became responsible for his first small team. Advice and support for managers was hard to find. Within a month, husband and wife team, James Manktelow and Rachel Thompson, set up MindTools.com, a website where people could learn what it takes to become a successful and effective leader - and the rest is history!
