With the holiday season upon us, it seemed like an appropriate time to ask clients and users of EOS® (the Entrepreneurial Operating System) about a “few of their favorite things” when it comes to using the system. Brown paper packages tied up with string aside, here’s what they had to say:
"Using common terminology and practices throughout the organization.
It helps people to quickly get on the same page."
-- Tom Geiger, CEO Heritage Bank
When everyone in an organization is on the same page, and all that energy is moving in the same direction, powerful things happen. There’s less confusion, less chaos, fewer mistakes, and it’s fun to come to work!
If you’ve ever traveled to a country where you don’t speak the language, you can appreciate how frustrating it can be to communicate and how unsure you can feel if you’re left to guess or assume things.
EOS® is an operating system that provides both a common language and set of principles for organizations to live by. This passage from “What the Heck is EOS®?” puts it best: A team of average people running their company on one operating system (the methods used to plan, prioritize, communicate, measure, structure, etc.) will outperform a team of high achievers, each doing things their own way, every day of the week.”
Thanks for your insights, Tom. You’re spot on.
Curious about what others have to say?
I'll share a post each week, so stay tuned!
