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.
As two 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 that will make you exponentially more desirable to potential employers, and more likely to succeed and enjoy your job once you're hired.
This "3G Mindset" is:
-Global: the openness and 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
The authors reveal why employers are three times more likely to hire people with the right mindset over those who are more qualified on paper. Put Your Mindset to Work provides an actionable approach for both assessing and developing these essential traits.

"To take advantage of advancement opportunities and improve job security, you need more than job skills. Using survey responses from 800 companies, two experts on career success say employers pay more attention to a candidate's mindset--a variety of mental traits the authors group into three categories: global mindset (seeing the big picture), good mindset (unwavering focus on the greatest good for all), and grit mindset (tenacity and resilience during adverse times). Narrating with impeccable skill in a rich baritone, Paul Costanzo relaxes the buttoned-down, prescriptive aspects of the production. Though these features make the work seem academic, even byzantine, the advice is solid, and Costanzo's approach creates an accessible learning experience. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
