These 20 tried and true tools deliver results. Implementing all 20 tools will allow you to take your business to levels that others only dream of.
Implementing the Five Foundational Tools alone will revolutionize your business by helping you clarify, simplify and achieve your vision.
- Accountability Chart
- Rock Sheet
- Meeting Pulse
- Vision Traction Organizer (V/TO)
These tools are customized for your unique business. During the first three sessions of EOS we use our skills of EOS mastery and facilitation experience to uncover the answers already in your organization and fit your answers into the appropriate tool. This creates lasting change, commitment and consistency. We continue to coach you through fine-tuning the tools until they’re commonplace within your organization.
The customized Accountability Chart creates structure and organization in your business.
It allows you to identify what structure is needed to get you where you want to go. You move beyond the traditional organizational chart and stop the habit of creating positions to appease personalities. It identifies clear roles, with clear responsibilities for all your employees. Once you have the Accountability Chart in place, you and your employees will breathe a sigh of relief. Everyone wants to know what’s expected of them; they want to know what their role on the team is and how their performance is being evaluated. The Accountability Chart makes that clear.
The customized Rock Sheet creates focus in your business.
You and your leadership team choose the three to seven of the most important things (Rocks) that need to get done in the next 90 days. Once these are decided, everyone goes to work, putting their heads down and taking action each week to complete these high-value Rocks. Your leadership team will get in the practice of completing three to seven high priorities every quarter!
The customized Scorecard is your dashboard of key performance indicators.
It gives you a pulse on the health of your business and allows you to better predict what lies ahead of you. You will start running your business on objective data rather than subjective opinions and “thought-so’s”.
The Meeting Pulse establishes a cadence for when you meet and a standard for how you meet.
This cadence helps you to maintain focus, driving your team toward completing the most important tasks that need to get done in your business. Meetings follow a set agenda with clear objectives. This will become the highest-value activity of your week. (No more unproductive, time-wasting meetings.) Your weekly Meeting Pulse increases traction, accountability, communication and team health, and will drive your company toward the results you desire.
The customized Vision Traction Organizer (V/TO) clarifies your vision.
This takes what you’re holding in your head and smartly gathers it into a one-page document. The V/TO captures the essential elements of strategic planning. It identifies your:
- core values
- larger-than-life goal
- marketing strategy
- core market
- 3-year picture™
- one-year plan
- quarterly goals
- all the issues and challenges that may create obstacles to achieving all of the above
Yes, all of that in one clear, two-page document that everyone on the team can get behind.
We take the complexity out of your vision, and bring it down to the simplest, essential form so it can be shared with your entire organization. It’s powerful when your entire organization is able to see, clearly, on one page, who you are as an organization, where you’re going and how you’re getting there.
GROWING BUSINESSES AND CHANGING LIVES
“2017 was a difficult but hugely productive year. Ben arrived at a time when our business opportunities were immense, but our company was an internal mess. We had no clear mission or structure and numerous people issues. Ben helped us find clarity in all areas of our business. In just a year, we turned over 50% of our staff, relocated our headquarters and posted our biggest sales quarter in 12 years of being in business. We have a galvanized leadership team and clear focus on who we are, who we’re here to serve, and where we’re going. Everything about our business looks and feels different. We couldn’t have made these accomplishments without Ben, and everyone at Riverbank will be forever grateful.”
