What they didn’t teach us in school

85% of success is ATTITUDE!

It's well-known that employers hire for ATTITUDE and train for SKILLS. However, according to a famous Carnegie Institute study, attitude is 85% of success. Being “crazy busy”, stressed & overwhelmed are all related to ATTITUDE. Many professionals struggle with work/life balance and are therefore less engaged at work. This leads to less creativity & collaboration & more “silo” mentality, drama, conflict, turnover, which diminishes the customer/member experience. Finally, there is a sustainable solution!
