Should I Wait?
I arrived early for the team’s 90-minute meeting. I was excited about meeting a new team, and they were excited to learn more about EOS® (the Entrepreneurial Operating System®). The meeting went great, and it was clear that EOS® could help them solve their people and process issues while taking the company to the next level. A few days later, the CEO and I followed-up, and she stated that the team unanimously wanted to move forward with EOS®, but they wanted to wait a few months until they resolved a few key people issues and had the correct leadership team in place.
It’s surprising, but I’ve heard this before. Teams want to resolve some problem, win a new contract, or add a new person before beginning their EOS® journey. This is like waiting until you’re healthy to go to a doctor…or waiting until your car stops making that funny “clanking” sound before taking it to the mechanic. EOS® is designed to help solve problems. I’ve seen companies improve their decision-making and predicting abilities 75% using EOS®. I’ve seen hiring improvements of 25-50% using the People Analyzer™ (Core Values and GWC™). I’ve seen companies with no clear vision get crystal clear on the future direction of the business. Whatever your problem, EOS® can help you solve it.
If you’re thinking that EOS® could be right for you, jump in and get started now. Like the old Chinese proverb says,“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is today.”
