THE SUCCESS SCALE

Our research shows that there are three keys to creating positive growth and predicting success at work: work optimism, positive engagement, and support provision.

We’ve created an assessment tool, The Success Scale, to allow you to test yourself right now on these predictors! You’ll receive your personal scores and an interpretive report upon completion.

of job success can be predicted from a person’s overall work optimism, positive engagement, and support provision.

WORK OPTIMISM

"Good things happen."

How do you devote your mental resources? Do you focus more on the paralyzing or energizing aspects of work? Work optimists are 5x less likely to burnout, 3x more likely to be highly engaged!

POSITIVE ENGAGEMENT

"In the face of challenges, I can succeed."

When stressed, do you view stress as a threat or a challenge? If you perceive stress as a challenge, then you’re 15x less likely to burnout, 6x more likely to be highly engaged with your work, and 3x more likely to be satisfied with your job.

SUPPORT PROVISION

"I invest in the success of others."

How much do you help your coworkers and provide them with support? Workers who give to their teams and coworkers are 65% more likely to get a promotion and 5x less likely to burnout.

HOW DO WE KNOW THE SCALE WORKS?

We used thousands of employee responses to calibrate which questions are best at ascertaining your score on the three measures. But a score that is not predictive is useless. We then compared how well these measures predict a host of business outcomes: work satisfaction, engagement, burnout, likelihood of promotion, depression, perceived success rates, etc.

Excitingly, the measures are actually significantly more predictive of your job performance than any previous measure for their given dimension. The analytical report will help you understand your scores and provide researched strategies to improve them so that you can be both happier and more effective at work.
