Success Has Gears: Using the Right Gear at the Right Time in Business and Life, by Susan Ford Collins and Richard Israel, is the second book in the Technology of Success series.  Susan has developed a deep understanding of the psychology and dynamics of success, and she conveys her knowledge clearly in this book. The authors explain how members of the business and corporate world must interact with each other on levels that meet the needs of all parties involved. The pursuit of success is likened to maneuvering through the different gears needed to drive an automobile. Sometimes a person needs to drop back into first gear to assimilate new skills. Mismatched gear speeds between supervisors and subordinates can severely damage the forward progress of an organization. Several examples are used throughout the book to illustrate how and why certain mega-successful businesses achieved their level of efficiency using the methods described. These principles can be applied to not only businesses, but to individuals who have a dream. Concrete steps needed to bring dreams to fulfillment are explained. I liked that this book prompted me to evaluate my own level of achievement, what gear I am functioning in, and the need to shift gears to move forward toward my own goals. Comprehensive checklists and keywords, used to describe the mindset of individuals in each of the three gears, will serve as reference for future use in the ongoing evaluation process. I would recommend this book to employers who seek to provide a positive work experience to employees in order to create and sustain a successful business. Likewise, employees can benefit from the book by learning how to identify what they need from employers in order to perform with maximum efficiency and job satisfaction. The skills described in Success Has Gears can easily be applied to all aspects of a successful life. I received an ebook version of Success Has Gears from the authors through Fred St Laurent and The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!
