Like many entrepreneurs you’ve either read or heard about the book “Traction” by Gino Wickman, which explains the power of the Entrepreneurial Operating System®. EOS® is a set of simple, yet powerful real world tools that allows entrepreneurs to get that they want from their business & life by strengthening the six key components of any business:
- Vision – getting everyone 100% on the same page about where the business and how its going to get there
- People – you can’t achieve a great vision without great people
- Data – run your business on the right set of objective predictive lead measures
- Issues – continually identify, discuss & solve the most critical issues facing the business
- Process – scale your business by documenting your core processes
- Traction – create a healthy culture of discipline and accountability where everyone is focused on their most important priorities
From theory to actually getting what you want from your business
Too many entrepreneurs read a book full of great ideas but have difficulty implementing those ideas in their business. The EOS Process™ is a proven sequence of daily sessions that allows entrepreneurs to implement the ideas in Traction into their business.
