AboutThe Fractional Integrators Alliance
The Fractional Integrators Alliance is built for companies running on EOS®, but that are facing one of the following problems:
They lack the resources for a full-time Integrator on staff; or
They self-implemented the EOS process and now need assistance to adjust to remote work, and bring the process online.
The Fractional Integrators Alliance is focused on remote management of the EOS Process® and supporting companies in successfully using EOS to run their businesses. Primarily, we are process managers; we support the leadership team in running L10 meetings, we hold people accountable to their To-Do lists, and we ensure Quarterly Rocks are kept on track.
For companies that are evaluating EOS and considering its implementation, we would be happy to introduce you to an EOS Implementer® who can manage the process.
The COVID-19 Reality
Dealing with the unexpected is one of the tasks anyone running a business is charged with… and, by the way, just add that on to your list of things you’re responsible for. With COVID-19 requiring companies to reinvent their operations in real-time, we are here to help evolve the existing EOS Process to function within an online platform. “Out” with the face-to-face and local storage and “in” with the virtual meetings and distributed content and storage platforms.
Let us share how we help you through COVID crisis, and the aftermath.
Some people are born for roles, others evolve into them. I fit into the second.
I’m a Strategic Planner for SME’s who has filled the role of integrator (before that was a title) for most of my Clients. I like to think of myself as “the guy who gets things done”. My Clients would agree with that.
I once had a boss who referred to me as “a dog with a bone”. I take that as a complement.
EOS® is a great system. It fits a need in helping companies grow by making sense of how to structure a company, and a platform to manage projects, hold people accountable, and get the results business owners count on.
I help companies who need a Fractional Integrator, I work as a Project Manager, and can manage Rocks in the sales and marketing areas as a contractor.
I play well in other people’s sandboxes, understand that people want to do their best, and want to enjoy their work. I look for those values in the Clients I engage.
I have thirty plus years in business, the last ten as a consultant working directly for business owners and leadership teams to re-frame and evolve their businesses to successfully compete and grow. Focusing on businesses that run on EOS is a natural evolution for me, and supports my skill-set and approach.
If you agree it makes sense, I’d be happy to speak with you.
“I can’t believe we did it!”
With that, the five members of the senior team high-fived each other.
We sat together at our industry’s annual celebration ceremony and soaked in the reality of the past year’s achievements. Our company had seized the opportunity of an ownership change to reinvent our brand, launch a new flagship product, and to re-energize each department. All this in record time and our industry had now taken notice in a big way.
I was operating as the “Integrator” in close partnership with the “Visionary” to transform our company into a true high performer. This accomplishment launched my journey to hone my integrator talents with EOS, creating the formal framework to get companies unstuck.
Since then, I’ve enjoyed a series of Visionary/Integrator inspired engagements in several industries including engineering services, construction, manufacturing, logistics and franchising.
The visionary owners I’ve worked alongside each have their unique style and way of operating and I’ve enjoyed the challenge of “filling in the gaps” on the leadership team to scale up their companies.
Whether the client was a small startup or a $200M+ enterprise, I discovered I truly loved helping teams break through their limits and focus their energies on what was needed to reach the companies operational potential.
Whether you are an EOS “convert” or new to this approach, if you are seeking a fractional integrator, let’s talk.
Even as children, my brothers and I were successfully entrepreneurs. We had an ongoing lawn maintenance and snow removal business, a babysitting monopoly, and a bicycle customizing shop going.
And that type of expertise; what is core to a business leader’s success, is a trademark to how I assist firms with 20 to 150 employees pivot and respond to those changes that are rapidly demanding their attention.
I’m that guy. I push for a better answer. I see the big picture and then push for the results. And like you, I want realistic, achievable, repeatable and sustainable growth.
EOS only works when someone does the work for your business to get the results it’s paid for. Otherwise, it’s another binder in the corner of your office.
My role with you and your team is to do what you cannot do, or do not have the time to do. Listen. Do. Do it again.
I have learned so many times that one company’s challenge is another company’s opportunity to enter new markets and revitalize old ones. Yes, I have failed many times and succeeded many times more.
So as I have said to my clients and have applied to myself: “if someone you trust gives you some helpful advice that you want to do, you should do it. However, if someone you trust gives you some helpful advice that you don’t want to do, do that first.” I am that trusted person for you.
