The EOS Model

The Six Key Components

Vision

Strengthening this component means getting everyone in the organization 100 percent on the same page with where you’re going and how you’re going to get there.

People

You can’t achieve a great vision without great people. Fill your business with great people, top to bottom, with the right people in the right seats.

Data

This means cutting through all the subjectives, opinions and egos and boiling your organization down to a handful of objective numbers that give you an absolute pulse on on your business at any time.

Issues

Strengthening this component means becoming great at solving problems throughout the organization – setting them up, knocking them down and making them go away forever.

Process

This is the secret ingredient in your organization. This means “systemizing” your business by identifying and documenting the core processes that define the way to run your business. We take a simplified, high level entrepreneurial approach to get everyone on the same page with what the essential steps are, and then get everyone to follow them to create consistency, scalability, and efficiency in your organization.

Traction

This means bringing discipline and accountability into the organization – becoming great at execution – taking the vision down to the ground and making it real.

The EOS Toolbox

Leadership teams in entrepreneurial companies are often overwhelmed and want to manage efficiently and effectively. Utilizing the right tools, in the right manner, transforms managing your business from chaotic and frustrating to fulfilling and energizing.

Every tool in the EOS Toolbox has been proven time and time again in the real world – the tools work!

The EOS Process™

What the process looks like

I

90-Minute Meeting

The 90 Minute Meeting introduces your leadership team to EOS®, getting everyone on the same page to decide if you want to use the system and tools to strengthen your company.

II

The Focus Day™

A day to give your leadership team tools to clarify who’s responsible for what, set priorities, improve communication, resolve issues and track critical numbers. Your leadership team then uses their new tools for the next 30 days to experience real improvement.

III

Vision Building™ Day 1

Another day with your leadership team that starts by reviewing and sharpening the Focus Day tools. You will then begin to use the Vision/Traction Organizer™ (V/TO) tool to clarify your vision, starting with who you are, why you exist, what you do and where you are going. You will also get a great tool for reviewing your people. 

IV

Vision Building™ Day 2

Another day with the leadership team to master the Focus Day tools and continue using the V/TO tool to complete your vision, clarify your Marketing Strategy, 3-Year Picture™, 1-Year Plan and priorities for the next 90 days.

V

Quarterly Sessions

A day with your leadership team every 90 days to make sure the team remains on the same page with the vision, evaluate their performance, refocus, set priorities for the next 90 days and tackle key that might impede progress.

VI

Annual Sessions

Two days with your leadership team each year to work on team health and update the vision and plan for the next year and next quarter.

The EOS Process
