EOS-run companies live by their quarterly Rocks. It’s in their DNA. Perhaps you’re not familiar with the term or you’re not clear of the true meaning.
Over the last few months, I’ve been hearing a common theme among my clients. They keep saying, “I have a day job and a Rock job.” At first that confused me a little bit. Then I realized that one of two things is true. One possibility is that we chose the wrong Rocks for the quarter. The second possibility is that the team member is spending most of their time on useless activities.
Everyone who runs a company on EOS® struggles with how to set Rocks at the start of their journey. If you are having issues with setting your quarterly priorities, take heart – you are not alone! And it is not as difficult as it may seem at first.
It’s no secret that successful businesses operate with a clear vision shared by everyone. They identify and solve issues promptly in an open and honest environment. But how do you keep everyone focused, aligned and communicating well?
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?
