Looking to Grow Your Business? EOS Can Help

Gayle Noakes - Gayle Noakes Supervisor Success

Are roadblocks getting in the way of your business goals? Are there underlying issues to solve before you can move forward as an organization and experience the growth you know is possible? I’d like to tell you about a way to remove those roadblocks and move forward with your business.

I’m talking about the Entrepreneurial Operating System, or EOS®. EOS was created by Gino Wickman and is described in his book, “Traction.” It has helped thousands of small to mid-sized organizations get the results they want from their businesses. Whether it is to grow, or to solve a current issue, EOS allows leadership to examine the roadblocks and provides steps to systematically overcome them. Permanently.

I worked for a manufacturing company that used EOS effectively. I lived this process on a daily basis and experienced the success. We used EOS to transform the organization. We eliminated many issues through the consistent, weekly meetings. One production worker said to me, “We have had that issue for 10 years and we just solved it!”

How Does EOS Work?

EOS is built for busy business owners. It is a complete set of simple concepts and practical tools that are easy to utilize in a fast-paced small or mid-sized business. These are useful tools to help people focus and accomplish their desired goals on a consistent basis. It is a customized, holistic model that uses the Six Key Components™ of your business – Vision, People, Data, Issues, Process, and Traction.

Model taken from (trademarked)

EOS is a framework that allows organizations to define what’s important, who owns it, and exactly what success looks like. Every team member is held accountable for a set of goals and numbers. The results are amazing.

If you would like to learn more about how to implement an EOS system in your organization (or enhance the EOS system you have in place), let me know. Using our experience, we can help you use EOS to grow your business and become more profitable by solving issues, consistently and permanently.
