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.

Three examples of companies rightsizing their leadership teams

One issue most business founders’ wrestle with is the optimum size for  leadership teams.

We find when clients implement EOS, the structure of the leadership team changes about 20% of the time.

It is important to set it up to manage business growth, considering what the leadership team should look like six-12 months in the future.

Here we look at how three client’s leadership teams changed while they were implementing EOS.

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.

Hitting and breaking through the ceiling

Business growth is rarely smooth and easy.

It tends to occur in spurts, often as a business responds to the things going on around it – a changing the economic climate, winning and losing customers, launching new products and services, increased competition in the market and so on.

Having shifted to accommodate the new environment, a company will often plateau as it is set up and structured with people and processes to generate the revenue it is producing. It is not set up to generate two or three times that.

So change is needed. What got you here, won’t get you to the next level.
