EOS® helps people to get what they want from their businesses. We do that by providing a complete system with simple tools to help you do 3 things we call vision, traction®, healthy.
To first get your leaders 100% on the same page with where your organization is going and how it is going to get there
Helping your leaders to become more disciplined and accountable, executing consistently to do things well, and achieve every piece of your vision.
Helping your leaders to become a healthy, functional, cohesive leadership team, because leaders often don’t function well together as a team.
From there, as goes your leadership team so goes the rest of your organization. You get to the point where your entire organization is crystal clear on your vision, all much more focused, disciplined and accountable in executing your vision, gaining consistent traction®, and advancing as a healthy, functional and cohesive team

Getting everyone in the entire organization 100% on the same page with where you’re going & how you’re going to get there
We can’t do it without great people. This means surrounding yourself with great people, top to bottom, because you can’t achieve a great vision without great people.
Cut through all the feelings, personalities, opinions & egos. Boiling down to a handful of objective numbers that give you an absolute pulse on where things are.
Becoming great at solving problems throughout the company – setting them up, knocking them down and making them go away forever
This is the secret ingredient. Systemising, identifying & documenting the core processes that define your way to run your business. Create consistency & scalability.
This means bringing discipline & accountability into the organization. Becoming great at execution, taking the vision down to the ground & making it real.
The EOS PROCESS™
The EOS Process™ provides a proven way to put all the pieces together, incorporating each of the EOS® Tools in the right order to best strengthen each key component of your business.
1. 90 MINUTE MEETING
This introduces the leadership team of a company to EOS®, getting everyone on the same page so they can decide if they want to use the system and tools to strengthen their company.
2. THE FOCUS DAY™
A day to give the leadership team tools to clarify who’s responsible for what, set priorities, improve communication, resolve issues and track critical numbers. The leadership team then uses their new tools in their business for the next 30 days to experience real improvement.
3. VISION BUILDING™ DAY 1
A day with the leadership team sharpening the Focus Day™ tools, followed by the Vision / Traction Organizer™ to clarify their vision: who they are, why they exist, what they do and where they are going, as well as a powerful people evaluator. They use the tools for 30 days in a spaced-learning approach which has proven to be most effective for gaining proficiency with the tools
4. VISION BUILDING™ DAY 2
A day with the leadership team mastering the Focus Day™ tools and completing the V/TO tool to complete their vision, clarifying their Marketing Strategy, their 3-Year Picture™, 1-Year Plan and priorities for the next 90 days. With the leaders now focused and all on the same page, they use the tools for the next 90 days to execute their plan experiencing more results.
5. QUARTERLY SESSIONS
A day with the leadership team every 90 days to evaluate their performance, refocus, set priorities for the next 90 days and resolve any issues that might impede their progress.
They experience measurable growth and improvement every 90 days – Traction®.
6. ANNUAL SESSIONS
2 Days with the leadership team each year to work on team health and update their vision and plan for the next year and next quarter.
The result is a healthy, focused leadership team and organization that makes continual progress towards achieving everything in their vision.
The EOS Toolbox™ is a complete set of tools, addressing and strengthening all six of the key components of any business. These management tools for business leaders are, by design, easy to learn and use, because complexity reduces effectiveness. Finally, every tool in the EOS Toolbox™ has been proven in the real world. There’s no theory here or flavor-of-the-month gimmicks. Each tool is in the toolbox because it’s the best tool we’ve found for strengthening a particular key business component – the tools work!
The Right Tools To Help Leaders

Your Next steps
Schedule an Introductory Phone Call With Cullen
The first step is to schedule an introductory phone call with Exit Momentum to discuss the issues your business is facing and to see if EOS is right for you. No sales pitch, just a thoughtful conversation about your business. We call this the V/T/H Call and it generally takes between 15 to 30 minutes.
90-Minute Meeting With Your Leadership Team
If we both determine that EOS would be a good fit for your business, the next step is to get you and your leadership team assembled for a meeting with Exit Momentum to discuss EOS in more specific detail. This is a free session to further explore EOS and make sure your team is ready to get on-board. Regardless of that decision, you will leave the call with at least 2 custom actionable items to implement.
Focus Day - (Online Or In Person)
Once your leadership team is onboard, the next step is to kick off the journey that will teach your business the tools it needs to achieve vision, gain traction, and get healthy. This full day session (either in-person or virtual) sets the foundation for future Vision Building sessions and Quarterly Pulse Meetings. Exit Momentum will teach, coach, and facilitate your business through the entire process of implementing EOS

What if all team members work virtually or we have health concerns about meeting in person?
Nothing changes in the EOS process and virtual teams or teams not comfortable meeting in person, most recently because of the Covid pandemic, simply moved their sessions to a completely virtual experience. Exit Momentum has a virtual studio that Cullen uses for those sessions and expects no change in value for clients or the results generated. In fact the average session rating given by teams across the EOS community does not change when moving from physical to virtual sessions.
