When Celebrating Becomes Strategic

Written by Don Tinney on July 29, 2019

Some teams hit an emotional wall after their first year of implementing EOS®. Teams that begin with many large issues to resolve, can make significant progress in the first year and, because of what is still left to accomplish, feel unsatisfied and a bit discouraged. It’s not unlike the marathoner who, after completing 10 miles, realizes there are still 16 miles to go. If you are feeling a bit exhausted from the first 10, the prospect of running the final 16 can feel overwhelming. Dan Sullivan calls it “the gap” between where we are and where we want to be.

Let Silence Do the Heavy Lifting

Written by Jill Young on December 7, 2017

It could be that one of the main reasons you are a successful business leader is that you really know how to talk. You’ve been rewarded in your career for being able to talk your way into (or out of) anything. You’ve been successful in convincing people, inspiring people, and getting your way because of your ability to talk. But, like most things in life, too much of a good thing can turn a strength into a weakness.
