Put Your Mindset to Work

The One Asset You Really Need to Win and Keep the Job You Love


'The insights in this brilliant book could have saved me and any top employer a lot of elementary mistakes, never mind the additional cost of bad decisions' Gordon Roddick, co-founder The Body Shop

The right mindset can make you three times more likely to get the job you want and even less likely to lose it later.


What does it take to get and keep the job you want? Ninety-six percent of employers argue that it's not just about having the right skills for the position- it's all about the right mindset.

Two world-leading experts on the subject, Reed and Stoltz know what employers really want from the people they hire and keep. According to their extensive and globally-acclaimed research, there is a specific set of mental traits, or what they call the '3G Mindset' that will make you exponentially more desirable to potential employers:

- Global: The big-picture perspective to compete on a global scale in any job
- Good: A positive force with an unwavering moral compass
- Grit: the tenacity and resilience to thrive on adversity

In these unstable times, everyone wants to stand out from the crowd and secure a rewarding job with long-term potential. This book will show you how.


'A powerful model and toolkit that will equip leaders at all levels to tackle challenges and lead others with exceptional results' Joshua Margolis, professor of business administration, Harvard Business School
