As an EOS Implementer™ I work with leadership teams running their company on EOS®, a business management system. During our quarterly sessions together, we spend a high percentage of our time on solving their issues. In the EOS Model™, the Issues Component™ has two tools. The first is the Issues List and the second is IDS™.
Leadership turnover is inevitable in a growing/entrepreneurial company. In fact, approximately 80% of companies that implement EOS® experience a leadership team change within the first few years of their implementation. It’s a natural outcome as the priorities and roles within the company gain laser focus.
Don’t you love the feeling of walking out of your Quarterly session with clear Rocks focused on solving the company’s highest priority issues for the next quarter? And doesn’t it drive you crazy when you get to your next Quarterly and realize that your team has only completed 40% of them?
In a recent session with a client, several leadership team members mentioned during their check-in that EOS® was “not working.” The Integrator expressed frustration that they were not making enough progress and worried that their investment in the process was not paying off.
In a survey of business owners, 82% of the respondents cited people issues as their number one frustration. Employees, partners, customers, vendors – they all weren’t on the same page!
In the EOS Process™, we address this frustration head-on by asking the leadership team three questions to strengthen the People Component of their business.
