What impact has implementing EOS had on your business and you as a leader?
EOS has helped my business build a clearer vision of where we are going and how we will get there. For me personally, EOS has helped me to relax and let my managers manage, my salespeople sell and everyone else does their job.
What have you learned by implementing EOS as your business system?
I have learned that my people have the capacity, ability and drive to accomplish great things. I often felt like I was the only one with vision beyond next week. EOS has helped me to see the vision my people have as well as share my vision with them.
What surprised you during the process?
I was surprised by how well everyone in my company invested in EOS; not just management. Because of the L10 meetings in every department, every person at CFI has a voice in what happens here.
What problems have you solved by implementing EOS?
This answer would be several pages if I listed all of the problems we have solved using EOS. We have gotten serious and moved forward with 100 percent RP/RS. We have invested in our L10s to the point that everyone in the company is getting more done instead of being in meetings all day. We face issues and work to solve them. Several managers, given the freedom to perform based on EOS’ principles, have stepped up their game to produce fantastic results for us. The managers have challenged each other (and me) to move beyond their own, self-imposed limits and work to remove habits that block them from being the best. The list goes on and on.
