Setting SMART rocks

Knowing what is important to the future of your business – and what is not – is one of the keys to success. Without this, you may never achieve your vision. 

That is why one of the early focuses of the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), is to establish what you want your business to look like in three years time, your goals for your first year to help you achieve this, and your priorities, or Rocks – the three to five things the company needs to do in the next three months.

Setting Smart Priorities – Bold Clarity EOS Quick Tips 9

In this video, Julia explains the importance of setting smart priorities – both for your company and individuals on your leadership team.

In EOS, these are known as rocks. Setting rocks every 90 days is a key element of this business management system.

Setting smart priorities a way of clarifying and giving weight to the most important things which must be accomplished over the next 90 days.

The Value of Offering a Guarantee

Many businesses are now making promises and commitments – in the form of “guarantees” – to underpin their brand reputation and product offering.

At Bold Clarity, we offer a guarantee that if you don’t get value from a session we facilitate with you and your leadership team, then you don’t pay us. This monetary value helps to make sure we deliver what we say we will and takes away the risk of our clients using us.

Many of our clients have seen the value and offer one too.

Who’s running your business: Bold Clarity EOS Tips Three

Quick business tips from Julia Langkraehr of Bold Clarity.

The third in the series focuses on “Who’s running your business”, Julia describes the five common frustrations she sees in entrepreneurs trying to lead, grow and scale a business.

1. Direction – they don’t know where they’re going

2. People – they don’t seem to listen

3. Growth – is flat

4. Profit – there isn’t enough

5. They’re stuck – nothing’s working

If you have any of these, consider running your business using an operating system, a holistic approach which can transform your business from top to bottom.
