As an EOS implementer I was very interested in the format of this book and how it helped leaders teach their teams about EOS. The design of this book delivers as something that will facilitate learning for people unfamiliar with EOS. There are summaries at the end of every chapter, and even a couple of new methods shared to help teams doing things like IDS and creating valuable scorecards for their group. My favorite chapter was the one on the People Analyzer and getting feedback because it challenged people to own their development and equips them to lead the feedback conversation with their leader. There are questions throughout that will also help make this a conversation between a leader and their team members. If you are an EOS company this should be part of your onboarding of people and a tool for all your leaders at any level to use with their teams.
This book will provide productive insight to both owners and employees of small to mid sized companies on the tools and processes needed to be successful in this competitive and ever changing market. This is a quick read and only addresses the key elements for success, no theory or academics, just productive tools.
Any business owner who doesn't make this modest investment in money and time is missing a great opportunity to take their business to the next nevel.
Although one or two ideas were interesting, overall I found this book a nightmare if fully implemented. Causing employees to attack each other in meetings, instead of addressing issues in private. (Hello HR). Encouraging employees to tell their managers their shortcomings on a job, or how they aren’t the right fit. And giving your boss a scorecard on how his meeting went (yeah right that’s helpful).
5.0 out of 5 starsGood read for anyone in any business!

It helped me, as an employee, to see the value that I can contribute to the success of the company for which I work. I understand the frustrations of management a lot better and can empathize with them more now that I see the direction they want to take us. Before the book, I felt like they knew the game plan and desired results, but wouldn't or didn't know how to make it happen. Thanks,
My company has been implementing Traction for the last couple years. I stumbled across this book and asked one of my dept leads to read it and review it for me. Her review " your an idiot..... for not having all employees read this book when traction was first implemented" she continued that it put the puzzle pieces together for her and she understood the why of following the traction model. So if you are implementing Traction don't be an idiot and think your employees understand the why...even if you think you've done a wonderful job explaining it. get the book.

Every company running on EOS, the Entrepreneurial Operating System, should make this book required reading for all their employees. It explains all the key concepts clearly & concisely. It helps them understand why it benefits both the company & themselves. And it will challenge their managers to be more proactive in making sure their direct reports understand where the company is going and how it is going to get there.
5.0 out of 5 starsSimple and easy to grasp the key concepts

Great extension into the organization. Translates Traction for the middle management and front line supervisor well. Appreciate the perspective given and the rationale from the point of view of the execution team
