Summary "Why do most people stay disconnected? And, why do some connect brilliantly? Get in Gear is meant to unleash people, to allow them to connect deeply and genuinely. It is meant to overwhelm them with piercing insights coupled with practical applications. The goal is to take a complex issue and make it simple enough for anyone to be able to change their behavior. Get in Gear positively affects the relational dynamics of those around us is through the use of powerful metaphor, relevant language, and actionable tools via 5 Gears. Everyone who reads it will come away speaking a new language, one that helps them connect deeper and more genuinely with anyone in any setting. And with these deeper connections comes deeper relationships and greater influence. Practical goodness and needed insight will change your world - at least in your family or team or just maybe within yourself! The 5 Gears: First gear represents full recharge, while second gear represents recharging or connecting with family or friends without the involvement of work. Third gear is our social gear, while fourth gear is our work gear that allows us to work hard while also multi-tasking. Fifth Gear is our full task mode that allows us to "get in the zone" without interruption. Each gear has its own purpose and place. Once you learn to use the gears consistently with those in your life, you will notice the common language that begins to form, enabling objectivity to characterize your conversation instead of the subjective judgment or condescension that becomes pervasive when each person is speaking a different "language.""-- Provided by publisher.
