Create Success Faster
Crisis Management has been a theme in a few of my recent posts. In the Gifts of Our Current Reality I suggest 10 things I wasn’t noticing in the old reality that I could now see as gifts. In The Anxiety Antidote I related 4 phrases that help assess mindset and move forward from stress and pressure with power and positivity. I also forwarded an eBook from Dan Sullivan with more great tools for Success in Scary Times.
EOS Success Stories
Last week, I asked a few of my EOS clients what they found most useful in navigating the unusual business climate over the past six or seven weeks. Their responses were telling!
IT Managed Services Company – Level-10 Meetings
The CEO of an IT Managed Services company related …
“Before EOS/Traction we would have been drowning in a murky pond, but in using the tools we have learned, like Level 10 meetings, we have kept our heads up and continue looking forward with clear direction. More importantly we do it efficiently without a lot of wasted time and undue stress.”
Financial Services Firm – Level-10 Meetings
A Financial Services firm who had just started implementing EOS a few months before the quarantine said the thing that made the biggest difference for them was …
“…Totally the L10 meeting! We weren’t even doing meetings consistently before this as a team. Back then I spent my weeks playing ‘whack-a-mole’ dealing with questions and issues, often repeatedly. Now even over Zoom, we meet consistently, we’re making decisions and our communication is more clear! I also really like that in every meeting we take a few minutes at the beginning to focus on our WINS! That has really helped us when things were tough over the last month or so.“
Non-Profit Chamber of Commerce – Rocks
The CEO and Visionary at a local chamber of commerce emphasized another key factor:
“…Through our work with you, we identified our focus areas – Rocks – to grow the organization. But with the crisis upon us, we were faced with having to cut programs and staff. As a leadership team we did a sort of red / yellow / green measurement on every program to assess its alignment with our Rocks. This helped us determine which programs to prioritize and which ones we should stop.”
As you can see, good Level-10 Meetings and clarity about Rocks stand out as big game-changers for these companies during the quarantine. With time on every L10 Meeting Agenda to highlight business and personal wins, review progress on Rocks, and IDS (Identify, Discuss, and Solve) the Issues that come up, these teams remained clear and focused.
A Workshop for your Leadership Team
If you have not implemented EOS with your team, Check out an overview of tools and disciplines here. Then set up 90 minutes for a free workshop with your leadership team. I’ll give you an overview of EOS and teach you about tools like setting Company and Individual Rocks and holding Level-10 Meetings. Establishing these practices could be a game changer for your business as you encounter turbulent times now and in the months and years ahead!
