how long does it take to implement eos?


It typically takes about 24 months to master the EOS tools.  Our goal is to get you to 80% strong in each of the Six Key Components™.  Our goal is independence, not dependence.

We also have some clients who value our coaching and objectivity and we are still meeting for years, as I had done with Gino Wickman as my Integrater - 9 years until I ultimately sold my business.

 

what investment is required to implement eos?


The investment required to implement EOS and achieve 80%+ is on average $25,000 per year, based on average of 5 sessions per year.

We don’t require any contracts, upfront fees or costs.  I charge per session and each session is fully guaranteed, if you did not get value out of the session, do not pay me.

 

how much time is required from my team to implement eos?


Initially, it will feel like EOS has added things for you and your team to do.  However, we are teaching you to be significantly more intentional with your time and it’s just the learning that makes it feel like more.

EOS is a world-class time management tool.  Ultimately, you and your team will be able to get much more done with a lot more focus.

You can expect to devote 90 minutes with your team weekly to EOS, reviewing your numbers, priorities, making sure your people are happy and solving your issues-working ON your business.

We meet for a full-day, 8-hour session, quarterly with your entire leadership team and a 2-day annual planning session.  During these full-day meetings, we are working on reviewing results, aligning your vision, setting new goals and solving issues. We spend one full day each quarter working ON your business, so you can devote focused time to work IN your business during the next 90 days.

 

who is my leadership team?


 Your leadership team are the 3-8 people who run the day to day of the business.  They may not have formal titles or roles at the beginning of your EOS implementation, but they will get a specific seat and accountability during Focus Day.

 

Who Should Come to a Focus Day™?


 When we decide to start implementing EOS, we begin with the Focus Day.  During the agenda, we will be creating your Accountability Chart.  We recommend inviting those individuals who you think will end up being accountable for the major functions of the business.  Here are some examples of major functions in every business:

  • Marketing

  • Sales

  • Operations

  • Finance

  • Integrator

  • Visionary

 

what’s the difference between my peer group and eos?


 Peer groups are awesome!  They differ significantly from implementing EOS into your business.  EOS is for you and your leadership team specifically, a peer group is for you as a leader to share with peers.  Peer groups are great to challenge your thinking, your strategies, and business models.  EOS just helps you get your leaders on the same page with those ideas and holds them accountable for executing. EOS is all about execution.

 

does wolff leadership offer talks or workshops?


 Yes!  We love doing talks for various peer groups like Executive Forum, YPO, EO, Vistage and many others. 

 

how long will it take to start seeing results?


You will start seeing results almost right away implementing EOS.  Within your first 60 days of implementing with me, you will have the five foundational tools in place.

  • Vision/Traction Organizer™ and your vision shared by your leadership team, 100% on the same page

  • The Accountability Chart, you will have your entire organization roles and responsibilities mapped out with all people issues clearly identified.

  • Rocks will be in place and be ready to be rolled out to the entire organization, driving more focus on the most important things in the business.

  • The Level 10 Meeting™ will be in place and will be making a big impact on the leadership team and the accountability within the organization.  Ultimately, you’ll be able to have fewer meetings while increasing communication.

  • The Scorecard will be in place and you’ll be running your business on the 5-15 numbers that drive your future P&L, with a true pulse on your business.
