Get Energized About Your Company's Annual Planning Session

Written by Mike Kotsis on February 1, 2018

Did you know that the most important part of your annual planning session isn't planning? If you're like many companies, your leadership team skips the most critical component of your annual planning. And it negatively impacts your team's creativity and goal setting for the coming year.

Written by Chris Naylor on October 5, 2017

Poor accountability could be the single greatest threat to your company’s future – creating a culture of excuses, confusion, and inefficiencies – ultimately resulting in a poor performance.

According to Gallup, only 30% of employees are “engaged,” 50% are disengaged (just going through the motions) – and an incredible 20% are actively disengaged, or working against you every single day – all of which directly impacts a culture of accountability.

What the Heck Is a Level 10 Meeting?

Written by Tom Bouwer on July 27, 2017

Do your employees know what a Level 10 Meeting is? At all levels of your company? If you’re running your company on EOS®, your leadership team should know what a Level 10 Meeting™ is and your entire organization should be engaged in regular Level 10 Meetings every week.
