Roll Out Traction Tools to Boost Efficiency Throughout Your Company


Roll Out Traction Tools to Boost Efficiency Throughout Your Company

Traction® Tools helps your leadership team use EOS® principles to become more productive. That increased efficiency can be experienced by every department, helping you get a grip on your organization.

Imagine how much more dynamic the finance department’s L10® Meeting will be when they use the same Traction Tools features available to the leadership team. Think about how much easier it will be for the sales team to concentrate on sales if all their ToDos and Issues are centrally located and tracked.

Doug Andersen, COO and Integrator for Magnet 360, was thrilled with the difference Traction Tools has made for his company. He said, “Thanks for your help! You saved me at least an hour a week getting scorecards and agendas ready for the L10. We love Traction Tools so much we’re rolling it out company-wide.”

By rolling out Traction Tools to all your departments, you can boost performance and keep everyone focused on what’s really important. And, using Traction Tools throughout your organization allows your leadership team to more easily view departmental metrics.

Everything in One Place

Who benefits from rolling out Traction Tools? People who attend more than one L10 get to see everything all at once when their departments have access to the software: their Rocks, Scorecards, and To-Dos are right there in one place. That alone elevates efficiency.

Integrators also benefit from rolling out Traction Tools across departments. Adding departments to the software opens visibility across the entire organization. Integrators can identify bottlenecks and successes at a glance by using the Scorecard—and they can review the Scorecard for all departments from one location. The Pages feature lets Integrators divide and organize information by department, making navigation a breeze.

Visibility and Invisibility

Who sees what information when more departments have access to Traction Tools? You decide!

By default, all of your Leadership Team’s L10 materials are private. To keep confidential matters confidential, users can’t see meetings they don’t attend. There’s one exception to that rule: Members of the leadership team can view departmental data even if they don’t attend that department’s L10.

Settings and permissions determine who can see what information. 

All for One and One for All

Everyone in your company benefits from having a tool that helps them stay focused. Leadership team members benefit from greater transparency. Integrators benefit from time saved and information learned. When you roll out Traction Tools to departments throughout your organization, you can improve communication and keep everyone working toward their goals.

About the Author

Kathy is the Integrator at Traction® Tools and, quite frankly, one of the main reasons our company took flight. After joining forces with Certified EOS Implementer™ Todd Smart as his executive assistant in 2013, she helped catapult Smart Partners, Inc. into a thriving entrepreneurial company. By that time, Kathy’s love affair with EOS® was a done deal. A few years later when the saucy little startup Traction Tools appeared on the EOS scene, Kathy switched gears and focused her attention on making Traction Tools an operational success. Her work at Traction Tools has been described by our Visionary as “akin to transforming an airplane into a rocket ship—mid-flight.” She harnessed and directed our energy toward rapid growth. She’s done the same as the director of learning and a member of the Leadership Team of the Female Integrator Mastermind (FIM).
