If you’re running EOS® (the Entrepreneur’s Operating System) in your business, you have experienced first hand how beneficial it can be to your company’s growth. Like all learning tools and systems, to really gain strong Traction®, the challenge lies in supporting your team on the ground level with the day-to-day execution and implementation of EOS® principles. Even though your team may welcome the changes EOS® brings and adopt the system, the secret to success is really the consistency and commitment to delegate accordingly.
Welcome to October and the start of Q4! Fall is my always favorite time of year for many reasons, but maybe most of all for the sense of beautiful closure that it inherently brings. It's like nature's encouraging reminder to move on from summer and flow into a blaze of glory! My hope is that you are blazing new paths and creating amazing things going into this last quarter of the year.

Walmart wants to bring its 'everyday low prices' to health care
Walmart, which markets itself as the leader in "Everyday Low Prices," is working on increasing its presence in the health care sector. The retail giant has entered into a deal with Anthem, one of the nation's largest insurers, to entice more Medicare enrollees to buy over-the-counter medications and health supplies at its stores. Former Humana executive Sean Slovenski has been hired to lead its health and wellness division and it was reportedly looking to buy PillPack before Amazon purchased the online pharmacy in June.
Weekly leadership meetings are important to the health of any organization, but are often times counterproductive and frustrating, with agenda items that don’t matter to everyone on the team, and potentially lingering action items/issues that no one claims/handles, etc. What if we told you there is a better way to manage your weekly leadership meetings?
Peace out summer! I turned 40 this summer, travelled around Europe and hit some really exciting milestones in my business; so it was a pretty epic summer for me! Hope you are sliding into Fall feeling equally as energized. There was no greater feeling for me than to be able to travel, completely disconnect and know that my team had things covered in my absence back at Delegate. Taking this break PROVED that it was possible. Nothing blew up, nothing came up that they couldn't handle and they happily rose to the occasion!
Inbox dread. We’ve all experienced it. After a weekend away, or even a lunch break, and you dread seeing your inbox filled again. Researchers at Carleton University recently reported business professionals now spend one third of their time at the office, and HALF of the time they work at home in their inbox. 30% of the time the emails were not important or urgent. That’s 11.7 hours spent at work and 5.3 hours at home — every week. I don’t know about you but I would gladly spend those 17 hours NOT in my inbox. Not only is it a drain on time it’s a drain on energy.
