About Success Orientations
"The Success Orientations Model keeps working!"
People in a variety of life contexts find value from the model as it helps them gain new insights. These insights help them make life and career decisions, understand their partner, children, parents, friends, peers, employees, bosses, teachers, coaches, religious leaders, government leaders, and other important people who affect their life.
The success orientations model was developed by Paul Kurucz, who first tried to make sense of why many people struggle in systems that didn't seem to fit them and struggle against other people who don't work to achieve things the same way they do. Patterns emerged in his mind over the years while teaching different types of students. Students seemed to behave in repeatable ways, depending on how they approached learning challenges and finding work after graduation. These patterns became clearer as Paul brought cultural groups, life-stage, and generation factors into the model, resulting in the "process", "relationship" and "goal" orientation success orientations.
