Coach Bob goes on to give a breakdown on all of these things, what EXACTLY is EOS, how it works. 1 Year Goals, 3 Year Picture 10 Year Plan. Getting the whole team to to understand the company core values and that those are shared By All. Right People / Right Seats. Traction and the 90-Day World. Rocks and what we have to accomplish to get to the next level.
If you are using something like EOS - you are trying to build a self-managing company. If you can not leave your business for a week, without everything falling apart, you dont have a business, you have a private practice.
