The EOS Model provides a visual illustration of the Six Key Components™ that must be managed and strengthened to be a great business. This model applies to big and small businesses alike, in any industry.
Vision. Strengthening this component means getting everyone in the organization 100 percent on the same page with where you’re going and how you’re going to get there.
People. Simply put, we can’t do it without great people. This means surrounding yourself with great people, top to bottom, because you can’t achieve a great vision without a great team.
Data. This means cutting through all the feelings, personalities, opinions and egos and boiling your organization down to a handful of objective numbers that give you an absolute pulse on where things are.
With the Vision, People, and Data Components strong, you start to create a lucid, transparent, open and honest organization where everything becomes more visible and you start to “smoke out all the issues,” which leads to…
Issues. Strengthening this component means becoming great at solving problems throughout the organization – setting them up, knocking them down and making them go away forever.
Process. This is the secret ingredient in your organization. This means “systemizing” your business by identifying and documenting the core processes that define the way to run your business. You’ll need to get everyone on the same page with what the essential procedural steps are, and then get everyone to follow them to create consistency and scalability in your organization.
Traction®. This means bringing discipline and accountability into the organization – becoming great at execution – taking the vision down to the ground and making it real.

We have a 12 year old company that has experienced solid growth in reaching $15.5 million in sales this year. The growth in our business has resulted in many positives, but the most difficult aspect of the growth has been keeping our team aligned with our direction. Although some of us knew the direction, our vision was not fully explained to everyone in the organization.
Along came EOSand Traction. The EOS Process™ has allowed us to fully articulate our vision, values, and processes to everyone in the company. EOS has also forced us to identify some of the biggest issues that have lingered for years, and solve them forever. This process is very simple and straightforward
and has helped us make major progress in a very short period of time. EOS is a total system for running all aspects of your business. It is one of the best tools I have found to get your whole team behind your vision and inspired to take focused action.
Don Schlueter has been masterful in helping us implement the tools of EOS within a short time. I would highly recommend Traction™, EOS, and Don to implement the process in your organization. After a bachelor’s degree in business, MBA, and countless business books, EOS may be the most practical system I have found to move our business forward.
