Make it Matter
Prior to working with an entrepreneurial leadership team to implement EOS®, every EOS Implementer™ conducts a 90 Minute Meeting to introduce the EOS Model™ and the EOS Process™. My goal is to help the leadership team determine if EOS®is right for them, audition as their EOS Implementer™, and provide them the information they need to make an informed decision.
During that initial meeting I learn about the company—their history, what their challenges are, what they want from their company, and what they excel at doing. It is not uncommon for the leadership team to spend considerable time telling me how busy they are.
Being busy seems to have become the standard for so many people. Being busy suggests we allow you to not be accountable because you are frantically moving from one project to the next. At the end of the day you are exhausted yet, truth be told, you were not productive.
EOS® has a solution for “being busy”. We call it the 90-Day World™. Here’s how it works:
When a Leadership Team defines their 1-Year Plan, we then help the team identify their company and individual priorities for the next 90 days. It is a proven fact that as humans, we can stay focused for only 90 days. After that we get distracted, the wheels on the bus become wobbly, and by day 92 the wheels fall off the bus.
Once the Leadership Team agrees to what the 5 – 7 priorities are for the next 90 days, they then write specific, measurable, attainable, and realistic Rocks that will move them toward their 1-Year Plan. I’ve talked about Rocks previously; you can find that discussion here.
Every 90 days we gather the Leadership Team around the table to evaluate the previous quarter, review the V/TO so the entire team is 100% on the same page with the company vision and how they are going to get there, and then we identify the priorities and Rocks for the next 90 days.
And this becomes your way of life. It is magical. At the end of the year, it is highly likely you will have achieved your 1-Year Plan. At the very least, you will have made substantial progress, which is probably more than you can say today.
90-Day World™—it’s the perfect solution to being productive rather than “being busy”. And who doesn’t want that?
If you’re ready to be more productive, I highly encourage you to learn more about EOS®and its 90-day model. The perfect way to start is to speak with someone who has gone through EOS®with his/her own business, as well as to an EOS Implementer™. As luck would have it, I am both. And I welcome the opportunity to talk about my experience, both as a business owner and as an EOS Implementer™. Chances are I went through something similar to what you are going through now and can offer a unique perspective.
Please fill out the consult form below if you’d like to have a short conversation with me about EOS®, your challenges, and the impact the process can make for you every 90 days. Your time is valuable. Let’s make it matter.
