Over 80,000 businesses run on EOS and it’s no coincidence.

Let’s look at why the EOS Model works so well:

  • EOS is built for busy entrepreneurs. It’s made up of simple concepts and practical tools that any leader can apply in a fast-paced business of almost any size.
  • The framework introduces Focus, Discipline and Accountability into an organisation by helping you define what’s important, who is responsible for executing, and what success looks like in each area. When more people in an organization are accountable for their goals and numbers, the business consistently achieves better results.
  • There are no quick fixes or treating symptoms. EOS goes deep into the Six Key Components of your business to strengthen each one—Vision, People, Data, Issues, Process and Traction.
  • Takes you beyond the surface to identify and tackle the root cause of your issues. The EOS Model is designed to solve your businesses problems once and for all.

The EOS Model

The EOS Model gives us a visual representation of the Six Key Components of any business. Regardless of the industry or size of a company, each of these areas must be identified, managed and strengthened, in order for a business to go from good to great.

Let’s break down each of the components in a bit more detail.

  1. Vision – This component is all about getting every single person 100% on the same page. Strengthening this area of your business means everyone is crystal clear on where you’re going and how you’re going to get there.

A business’s vision needs to simple and clear, not complicated and jargon-filled. If it can’t fit onto a page (or two) it’s too complicated and won’t be easy getting everyone on the same page. A good way to clarify your company’s vision is to meet with your leadership team, get a pen and paper and have everyone answer these questions:

  1. What are your core values?
  2. What is your core focus?
  3. What is your 10-year target?
  4. What is your marketing strategy?
  5. What is your three-year picture?
  6. What is your one-year plan?
  7. What are your quarterly Rocks?
  8. What are your Issues?

  1. People – Even the greatest leaders can’t do it alone. This area of the business is about analysing the state of your teams, making sure you’re surrounding yourself with great people from top to bottom. 
  1. Data – This component is about the raw numbers. It’s where you need to sift out the opinions, feelings and personalities affecting decisions and look at our business through an analytical lens. Objective numbers to show you exactly what’s happening within the business.
  1. Issues – Strengthen the Issues component focuses on becoming better at solving problems throughout the entire company. You learn to face issues in a more productive way, solve them, and build an environment in which fewer issues arise.
  1. Process – This component is the most crucial to your organisation, and some call it the ‘secret ingredient’. In this area, you identify and document the core processes that define how to run your business. It’s about getting clear on essential steps, and executing a plan to get every single person on the same page, so that consistency and scalability are at the forefront.
  1. Traction – Strengthening the Traction component of your business means instilling discipline and accountability into the organisation. You learn how to become great at executing your vision and making it happen.
