Your Journey to Get Real, Get Simple, and Get Results
By Gino Wickman and Mike Paton
Gain traction® with practical tools that lead to real results.
Gino Wickman’s first book Traction, describing his Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), is already one of the great improvement game plans for business owners in America. Here, in his new brainstorm with coauthor Mike Paton, he takes entrepreneurial readers through a single story to show how every advantage of implementing EOS can actually become a practical reality in their own businesses.” —Dan Sullivan, Founder of Strategic Coach®
Eileen Sharp and Vic Hightower were frustrated. After years of profitable, predictable growth, Swan Services was in a rut. Meetings were called and discussions held, but few decisions were made and even less got done. People were pointing fingers and assigning blame, but nothing happened to solve Swan’s mounting problems. It felt as though they were working harder than ever, but with less impact. The company Eileen and Vic had founded and built for 10 years was a different place. It just wasn’t fun anymore.
Their story is not unusual. The challenges they were facing are common, predictable, and solvable. Get A Grip tells the story of how Swan Services resolves their issues by implementing the Entrepreneurial Operating System®, a real-world toolkit used by thousands of existing businesses. With the help of EOS, Eileen, Vic, and their leadership team master a set of simple concepts and practical tools that help them get their growing business – and their lives – back on track.
Filled with familiar situations, real-world characters and detailed, fully-applied tools, Get A Grip vividly illustrates the right way to implement EOS in an enjoyable fable format, making it easy for you to translate this story into results for your own business.
After reading Get A Grip … I see clearly how implementing his Entrepreneurial Operating System could truly transform a business and put it on the road to greatness. This book will change your company—and your life.” —Bo Burlingham, Editor-at-Large of Inc. Magazine; Author of Small Giants: Companies That Choose to Be Great Instead of Big.
