What is EOS?

Real, Simple, Results

The Six Key Components™

The EOS Model shows the Six Key Components of your business.

The EOS Model shows the Six Key Components of your business.

Day-to-day business life is a whirlwind—136 issues come at you from up, down, left, right, and diagonally. What we’ve discovered is that to the extent you can manage to and strengthen just Six Key Components of your business, it just tends to calm. Everything. Down.


Get everyone in the company 100% on the same page with where you’re going and how you’re going to get there.


Surround yourself with great people, top to bottom, because you can’t achieve a great vision without a great team.


Get ego-free, personality-free information giving you an absolute pulse on the health of your company.


Become great at solving problems throughout the organization and making them go away forever.


Systemize your company so it becomes more efficient, more effective, more fun and more manageable and ultimately more profitable.


Bring discipline and accountability into your company, taking the vision down to the ground and making it real. Vision without traction is hallucination.

Are These Things Frustrating You?

Your Profit

There's not enough of it.

Your Growth

Your business has hit a ceiling, and so (seemingly) have you, no matter what you’ve tried.

Your Solutions

Your people roll their eyes these days at change initiatives because strategy shifts and quick fixes haven’t seemed to work.

Your Control

It seems like your business owns you.

You're Not Alone
