Get a Grip on Your Business

Your choice of a 90 minute keynote address or 4 hour workshop

The Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®) is a holistic and comprehensive business management system that provides a complete set of simple, proven tools to help business leaders get the results they want. From a practical standpoint, EOS helps companies achieve three things we call Vision, Traction, and Healthy.

Vision, meaning first getting the leaders of your organization on the same page in terms of the vision for your organization and – more importantly – how you’re going to get there, Traction, meaning helping your leaders to become more disciplined and accountable, executing consistently to get things done so they can accomplish the organization’s vision, and Healthy, meaning helping your leaders to become a truly functional, cohesive leadership team, because leaders often don’t function well together as a team.

Attendees will learn about the process of focusing the business, learn the major steps to ensuring accountability in their organization, be exposed to some of the EOS tools, and leave with new insights into how to run their business better.

What Hiking 2658 Miles Taught Me About Business Leadership

60 minute keynote address

The Pacific Crest Trail runs 2658 miles all the way from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon, and Washington. In April of 2009 Joel took a break from the consulting world and set out north from the Mexican border. Five months and six pairs of shoes later he arrived in Canada an exhausted, triumphant, changed person.

Being a natural learner and thinker, Joel’s business mind did not take a break during this hike even though his career did. He learned many lessons on the trail that apply as directly to the business world as they did to a grueling five month hike, and will be the first to admit that his current success as a Certified EOS Implementer is directly tied to how he learned and grew during that adventure.

Attendees will learn how many of the challenges Joel faced translate to leading their own businesses, and will leave inspired to embrace the challenges and risks they encounter both personally and professionally.
