  • How to align the leadership team around a Vision using a simple business planning tool called the Vision/Traction Organizer.

  • The EOS approach to Right Person Right Seat – getting the people into your organization who live your culture and fit their role.

  • How to run a powerful “L10” meeting to ensure the company is executing to the vision.
