Recently I’ve discovered an interesting side effect of my clients advancing on their journey to mastering the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®). They learn to increasingly value their time and no longer tolerate anyone wasting it with long, pointless meetings. In fact, I’ve had clients harnessing the power of Level 10 Meetings (L10s) with their vendors. Frankly, that’s music to my ears.
Over the years, I’ve worked with hundreds of business owners as a Certified EOS Implementer®. Some ran amazing companies, and some … not so much. I wouldn’t necessarily say the owners ran crappy companies. I mean they did, I just wouldn’t say that. But I have noticed that all great companies have five things in common.
If your company keeps losing money with the same business plan, what do you do? Established businesses with an identified Core Focus™ may have choice words for what I’m about to say: Yes, you really CAN pivot your Core Focus when you need to… regardless of how long you’ve had it.
One of the first things a company will do when they start working with EOS® is making an Accountability Chart. Sounds familiar? Think again. There’s an important distinction between a typical organization chart and the EOS Accountability Chart.
