The Business Pit Stop: Episode 10 – Gaining Traction With Accountability And Metrics
In the Business Pit Stop Professional small business consultants and father and son duo Jeff and Clayton give strategies for success in running a small business, family business, or start up. After years as implementers of the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®), a system that has helped 4000 businesses break through the ceiling, Jeff and Clayton are expanding their small business, and want to share their unique perspective in bringing the Entrepreneurial Operating System to a small business.
Jeff and Clayton discuss the Accountability Chart™ and the Scorecard™, two tools from the Entrepreneurial Operating System™ that they look to every day for guidance. Clayton talks about the struggle of feeling a little overwhelmed with the abundance of tasks that CAN be done in a small business when the guidance of exactly what NEEDS to be done isn’t clearly defined.
Jeff explains how he used the Scorecard to bring some predictive numbers into the equation and help Clayton to do two very important things every small business needs: use his time in a way that maximized progress towards a long term goal, and establish a system of self-report accountability.
That simple change helped Clayton start gaining Traction®.
