SUCCEED Implementation

SUCCEED Comprehensive Curriculum Implementation Outline

The McGrath SUCCEED System is not a quick fix or “drive by” approach. Novices with the McGrath SUCCEED System can develop the basic skills into an art form that truly transforms their relationship with the people they supervise. This takes practice and study. The ultimate goal with SUCCEED is for an organization to create study groups or learning communities to tackle the subject matter together and complete our Mastery Curriculum over a period of months.

The intent of SUCCEED is to cause a lasting paradigm shift and adaptation of this new model in every site and department. This can only be accomplished by deepening the learning over time. For those organizations that are committed to adopting and supporting the ongoing use of this approach organization-wide, we have created the complete curriculum and implementation plan below.

No other SUCCEED training may be delivered by SUCCEED program graduates who have not completed the Training of McGrath Certified Instructors, specifically they may not train anyone in the SUCCEED FICA methodology.
