Summary

It’s time to take your business to the next level.
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 its issues by implementing the Entrepreneurial Operating System. With the help of EOS, Eileen, Vic, and their leadership team master a set of managerial tools that allow them to get traction on their business, grow the business, and deliver better results for clients.
The story of Swan Services is a fable, but the Entrepreneurial Operating System is very real and has helped thousands of businesses worldwide. A complete entrepreneurial toolkit, EOS has helped thousands of businesses get to where they want to be.
In Get a Grip, learn how Swan Services leaders learned to develop and commit to a clear vision, establish focus, build discipline, and create a healthier and more cohesive team.
With characters and situations created from collective business experiences and stories, Get a Grip is a fable that will ring true for entrepreneurial leaders the world over and guide them to get their companies on track.

Good content, but hard to listen to

The guy who reads this does a terrible job of breaking up sentences and thoughts. He reads it like one never-ending run-on sentence.

Very Good Companion Book to "Traction"

Very good. Companion book to "Traction", one of my top-three-ranked all-time business books. A well-written, very realistic (it's basically what we've experienced over the past two years) fictional account of a company getting itself organized using the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS). Of you are interested, call me at Hunter Rowe Real Estate or search "Ben Goetz" on Google and call him, he is our "EOS Implementer".
