If you’re looking for a complete set of simple concepts and practical tools that will help the leadership team of your entrepreneurial company make better decisions, create a clearer, simpler vision, get everybody on the same page and execute day in and day out with real discipline and accountability, then you want to listen to Mike Paton, award-winning speaker, best-selling author, Certified EOS Implementer™, and the Visionary for EOS Worldwide, on this week’s episode of The Melting Pot.

Paton (as everyone knows him as) discovered the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS) a dozen years ago while trying to take a $7 million company to the next level. Feeling stuck and more than a little frustrated, his search for answers led him to Gino Wickman and EOS.

Paton instantly recognised the power of this simple, holistic “way of operating” a small business. Since then, Paton has conducted more than 1,200 full-day sessions with the leadership teams of more than 110 companies and helped thousands more entrepreneurs by sharing EOS in dynamic talks and workshops the world over.

During this journey, Paton wrote Get A Grip: An Entrepreneurial Fable with Gino Wickman and then succeeded Gino in the role of Visionary for EOS Worldwide.

Today Paton and Dom chat about why you might want a system at all, why you might want a coach and they talk about some of the tools in EOS. They also talk about rocks and the level 10 meeting.

So to hear this and so much more, tune into this week’s episode, it’s a great conversation that we are sure you’re going to hugely enjoy.

On today’s podcast:

  • What visionary means in the EOS world
  • How Mike found himself working with entrepreneurs everyday
  • Why writing the book was the hardest thing Mike has ever done
  • What putting EOS into place looks like for some businesses
  • The Level 10 Meeting
  • Why the level of maturity and experience of the leadership team needs to grow with the complexity of the business
