Traction - Entrepreneurial Operating System

Cohosted with Cornerstone Advisory Partners

Are you running your business...or is it running you?

If you are the owner, leader or manager of an entrepreneurial organization who wants to see your business consistently run better and grow faster, Ben Goetz and EOS can help you and your team simplify, clarify and achieve your vision.  

Even the most successful entrepreneurs occasionally find running a business more challenging than they expected. Many work longer hours and get less return on their investment of time and money than they would like. Most entrepreneurs regularly grapple with one or more of the following challenges:

  • Lack of control
  • Having others listen, understand and follow through
  • Not enough profit
  • Growth and breaking through to the next level
  • Quick fixes that don't last

If these problems seem all too familiar, you’re not alone. It doesn’t have to be that way. For over 10 years, Ben has been helping entrepreneurs and their leadership teams succeed. In this dynamic presentation, Ben will introduce you to the Six Key Components™ of successful businesses. He’ll arm you with a set of simple, practical tools you and your leadership team can begin using right away to get better results.
