Is your company healthy, or does it suffer from some aches and pains? Business health often is measured in terms of financial success, but there’s much more to the equation. It’s a clear vision and a team that’s working together to make the vision reality. A corporate culture that focuses on continuing education and nurturing success. Exemplary service that breeds lasting customer loyalty. Traction.
The EOS System gives you the holistic business model and tools you need to build a strong, healthy and profitable company. The system benefits your business in several key ways:
Defines A Clear Vision For Your Business
A clear vision for your company means that everyone is on the same page and working toward the same ultimate goals. When Apple Computer released its first Mac in 1984, almost no one cared about computers. They certainly didn’t want one at home. But Steve Jobs believed something different. Today, we hold powerful computers in our hands and can’t imagine life without them.
Jobs had a vision, but it took his entire team to make it happen. Defining your vision is the first step in knowing who you are, what you do, where you’re going and how you plan to get there. To make it happen, your whole team must be on board.
Gives your business traction
Traction means you’re moving in the right direction. You’re gripping the road and making progress. Traction can manifest as identifying a profitable market niche and quickly gearing production and operations toward filling it. It can mean strong cash flow and talented employees working effectively as a team.
Traction moves you toward success, and it helps your leadership team become even more accountable and disciplined, executing the company vision consistently and well.
Creates a healthy team for your business
The opposite of a healthy leadership team is one that exists in silos — barriers within companies that give people tunnel vision. Silos mean people work against each other rather than toward common goals.
A healthy team includes smart, strong individuals who work together as a high-functioning and cohesive leadership group. Leaders often don’t naturally function well as team players; EOS helps you to surround yourself with not just great people but with a great team working together to achieve the shared vision.
To measure the health of your business, first look at your vision. Is it clear, and is your team on board? Does your company have traction — making measurable progress toward goals? EOS can help you build a company that has a strong vision, that’s moving forward in concrete ways and that has the right team on board.
