Book review: The One Minute Manager Meets The Monkey

The other day, I was talking with a tech entrepreneur and asked him “What are the biggest challenges you face in your business?

He replied “Me, I’m the bottleneck. I tend to see something isn’t working, and I jump in and get involved.”

Most dedicated business owners can relate to this.

Letting go of the reins and handing them over your employees can be a real struggle, and if you want to grow your business, you’ve got to do it.

Business owners must carefully define the roles and responsibilities of the company, hand these jobs to the right person and have the confidence not to jump in or micromanage every task.

If you struggle with “bottleneck syndrome”, we recommend Ken Blanchard’s The One Minute Manager Meets the Monkey.

Book review of Get A Grip

In many ways, “Get a Grip” is a key follow-up to Gino Wickman’s previous book about the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), “Traction.” In this review of Get a Grip, we’ve seen how the book takes the same ideas and concepts from Traction and puts them into context through the fable of “Swan Services,” a fictional company which is putting EOS into practice.

Book review: What the heck is EOS?

What the heck is EOS? is the latest book about the Entrepreneurial Operating System, written by founder Gino Wickman and Certified EOS Implementer Tom Bouwer.

It’s a really clear explanation of the process and is the perfect book to help you get to grips with what might at the start seem like a tricky system to understand.

The authors have joined forces to create a book that will become many readers’ best friend. It breaks down EOS in a way that offers an enjoyable and straightforward read from beginning to end, and can provide a quick refresher when needed.
