Professional EOS Implementer
What I do: I help CEOs and business owners get what they want from their businesses without the stress and drama by providing a complete system with simple tools that help your senior leadership team do three powerful things that I call … “VISION-TRACTION-HEALTHY”.
By VISION, I mean getting your leadership team all on the same page with where you’re going, and how you’ll get there.
By TRACTION, I mean getting everyone in the organization to execute with more discipline and accountability toward your Vision.
By HEALTHY, I mean getting your Leadership Team to become a healthy, functional and cohesive team. (Because often they’re not … sometimes strong leaders don’t work well together).
And as goes your leadership team so goes the rest of your company … You get to the point to where everyone in the organization is crystal clear on your vision, executing with discipline and accountability on your vision and consistently gaining traction and advancing as a healthy, fun-loving, functioning cohesive team.
Why it works: All the great books that I’ve read (including The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The E-Myth Revisited, Good to Great, Rockefeller Habits, The Goal, etc.) all come together in the book, Traction®.
If any of this resonates with you, I’d love to schedule a FREE 90 Minute Workshop to show you have to use EOS to experience Vision, Traction, and Healthy with your team.
Here’s my GUARANTEE … “If you don’t feel like you get value from our time together, then you don’t pay me” … straight forward, and simple.
