Well-intentioned <I>but lacking all 10 Success Skills,</i> they work longer and harder with more stress and less satisfaction but fewer dreams realized. And they teach their children to do the same.</p><P>"What makes some individuals and teams more successful than others? Are there actually Success Skills and, if so, how can they be learned and taught?" These questions kept Susan Ford Collins awake at night as a young researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health. Finally she stood up in one of their high-powered conferences and proposed studying healthy, successful people as well as ill ones. Her colleagues all laughed, but red-faced she vowed to spend the rest of her life doing just that. And she has.</p><P>For the next 15 years, Susan shadowed outstanding people from all walks of life <I>and was able to discover 10 skills they were using consistently but unconsciously.</i> Since then she has taught these skills in major corporations and educational institutions. Knowing these individuals and teams were using her skills to create successes they wanted, and lives they enjoyed, inspired Susan to write <I>The Joy of Success.</i></p><P>In this must-read guide to personal satisfaction and fulfillment, renowned business consultant and motivational speaker Susan Ford Collins shows individuals in any field how to achieve success in their lives. In <I>The Joy of Success</i> she outlines each skill and provides easy-to-learn methods for immediately putting them to use. Throughout, she includes powerful examples, stories and suggestions. Whether readers are changing jobs or relationships, starting or managing companies, families or dreams, these 10 skills will guide them step by step not just to the successes other people want for them, but <I>to the successes they want for themselves. To the completion of their own projects and dreams.</i></p>
