Now that you've read Traction, what next?

You’ve just finished reading Traction® and you’re eager to try it out yourself. The next steps depend on where you want to begin. There are two ways to begin: hire an implementer or implement on your own.

Hire an Implementer

You’ll have the greatest success rate in the shortest time by hiring an EOS® consultant, commonly referred to as an implementer. There’s a vast network of professional Implementers meet with your leadership team over the course of two to three years to install EOS in your organization the right way the first time.  They’ve worked with organizations like yours and have a consistent and strong track record. You can meet with an implementer for a free 90 minute meeting to learn how they can help:

  1. Develop a disciplined, accountable team that executes well to achieve everything in your vision
  2. Get your team 100% on the same page driving towards a shared vision
  3. Get the most from all your people by placing them in the right seats
  4. Objectively track activities to assure desired results
  5. Develop your team to quickly resolve all issues and keep you moving forward
  6. Minimize errors and create consistency around everything you do

Implement EOS Yourself

If hiring a professional implementer isn’t the best fit for your organization, the other option is to self-implement. Even if you go this route, we recommend inviting an implementer to help you conduct a pure 90 minute meeting. After that, you’ll have the greatest success if you:

  • Make sure everyone on your leadership team has read Traction and Get a Grip
  • Select someone on your team to own the implementation
  • Join Base Camp and achieve proficiency in the EOS Process™
  • Follow the EOS Process purely.
  • The community is here to help. If you get ever get stuck, the EOS implementer you worked with is happy to help.

Just remember, EOS takes time to implement correctly. For it to work, you must to stick with it.

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).
