What impact has implementing EOS had on your business and you as a leader?
EOS hasn’t just changed how I manage my business, it was a big part of what I consider a life changing experience. It’s allowed UTF (and me) to be absolutely confident in the decisions we make. There are no more gray areas within the pressing issues. Just answers.
What have you learned by implementing EOS as your business system?
(I can’t write all the things I’ve learned so I’ll just give a few) While we’d all consider ourselves to be good leaders prior to implementing a system like EOS, it’s allowed us to stay absolutely focused on, and solve the most important issues. You set your quarterly rocks, document your Issues and SOLVE them in the correct order. It’s an amazing feeling of accomplishment that makes you a better leader and person!
What surprised you during the process?
How simple the EOS system seems when reading and learning it, coupled with how incredibly hard it can be at times to implement. You have to be all-in and trust the process for it to work. It’s not for the faint of heart. If you are serious about change, this is the system for you!
What problems have you solved by implementing EOS?
EOS has allowed us to solve the following issues (in no particular order):
- Low morale
- Serious people issues that were crippling the company
- Proper company structure
- Core values, Core Focus and Core Processes
- How to make every meeting a productive one
