If you’re in the business world, you’ve probably heard of EOS.

Over 80,000 businesses around the world have used it successfully to run their business. But there are still a few misconceptions about implementing the method and achieving results.

So let’s talk about two things that the EOS Model isn’t.

The EOS Model is not a framework that only helps businesses that are failing or “stuck in a rut”.

It’s not a magic pill that does all the work for you while you sit back and wait for results.

Because while the EOS Method is simple, it’s not easy.

There’s a practical framework that is proven and has helped thousands of businesses get to where they want to be. But that’s because the business leaders were on board, patient, and they put in the work.

Some businesses feel overwhelmed by the complete shift in mindset and approach that EOS asks for, and it’s at that point in which some businesses may give up. Let’s dig into two big misconceptions some businesses have about the EOS Method.

Misconception #1—EOS only works for struggling businesses

If the EOS Model exists to help leaders get more out of their business, to help them gain control and see a productive change, it’s only appropriate for those that are failing, right?

Well, not quite.

The EOS Model is built on a set of tools to take businesses to the next level. It digs deep to identify and strengthen the Six Key Components that every single business, small or large, needs to be clear on.

If your business has between 10-250 employees, and you want to get more out of your business, EOS is for you.

But most importantly, the EOS Model works for your business if you are coachable.

The Entrepeuneral Operating System can help you get what you want from your business if you:

  • Want to gain more clarity in your business’s vision
  • Feel your leadership teams could be strengthened and more aligned on the same goals
  • Want to identify and strengthen each part of your business
  • Want to increase your profitability
  • Want to achieve a sharper focus on your business goals and how to achieve them

Misconception #2—EOS gets you quick results and does the work for you

Since Gino Wickman first published his book, Traction: Get A Grip On Your Business in 2007it’s remained the world’s best-selling business book. Since then, thousands of leadership team have made huge progress running their business on the EOS Method. 

They may have turned to EOS because their business just wasn’t making the progress they had planned for it. Perhaps they struggled to reach resolutions within the leadership team and people weren’t on the same page. They may have felt that were stuck in a rut with no visible way out. 

One thing they all have in common?

Once they started running their business on EOS, they quickly learn that it’s no magic pill. The system requires a lot of tolerance for change, patience, and faith that the groundwork will pay off.

Small victories need to be recognised along the way. It’s not a quick-fix, but a calculated set of practical tools that have been proven to take businesses to the next level.
