"I learned more from Susan in a matter of hours than from all the management, leadership and team-building trainings I’ve taken in 18 years. And it works in my personal life too."  — Carl J. Flood, VP Worldwide Management, American Express

Welcome to THE TECHNOLOGY of SUCCESS, the powerful leadership system that has been used in more than 3,000 major corporations, universities and organizations across the globe since 1985.

THE TECHNOLOGY of SUCCESS is based on the groundbreaking work of Susan Ford Collins, who began her career as a young researcher at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Susan had a radical idea—what more could we learn if we studied healthy, Highly Successful People (HSPs), not just ill and dysfunctional ones? Are HSPs using skills the rest of us are missing, or misusing?

"Susan Ford Collins spent two decades studying successful people. Now she shares with others what she has learned about management and leadership." — Lou Dobbs, CNN

In her research, Susan Ford Collins shadowed successful people from all walks of life and identified 10 skills they were using consistently but unconsciously. With the help of her business partner Richard Israel—himself a highly accomplished author and coach—she shaped her research into a powerhouse program focusing on the 10 Success Skills.

When all 10 Success Skills are used correctly, individual and team productivity, collaboration and creativity rises to the next level. And profitability rises with it. This powerful leadership and career advancement program has been used by American Express, Ryder System, Digital Equipment, Florida Power & Light and CNN.  

Today,THE TECHNOLOGY of SUCCESS continues the work of teaching these success and leadership skills in corporate training programs, educational workshops, individual and team coaching sessions. As a part of reaching out to a whole new generation, we are proud to announce the release of a new edition of the complete TECHNOLOGY of SUCCESS BOOK SERIES, including The Joy of SuccessSuccess Has Gears, and Our Children Are Watching.

"I have been reading books on success for over 30 years. This is one of the most sophisticated and useful ones I have ever read. I highly recommend it." Jack Canfield, coauthor Chicken Soup for the Soul series
