Product description

Review

Since implementing the entrepreneurial operating system outlined in [Traction], my company has been more productive than ever. . . . The book brings proven business best practices from the top thought leaders in business into one hands-on manual that you can apply today.
--Dan Moshe, founder and CEO of Tech Guru, for The Business Journals' The most important business books ever written

Implementing [Traction's] structured approach at Avondale has had a tremendous impact on our leadership's productivity and has improved operations throughout the organization.
--Karl Stark and Bill Stewart, cofounders, Avondale

The concepts and tools that have been masterfully captured in the pages of this book have provided some of the magic that has helped us grow our business 300 percent over the last five years. Don't miss it!
--Craig Erlich, CEO, pulse220

The concepts in this book have changed my life! I'm now able to let go of the day to day, knowing I have developed a team that can efficiently handle the details. We have consistently grown every year for the last four years in a very tough market, while the competition has struggled.
--Ronald A. Blank, President, The Franklin Companies

Having coached and trained over 13,000 entrepreneurs, I know the challenges they face. This book is a must for any business owner and their management team. Traction provides a powerful, practical, and simple system for running your business.
--Dan Sullivan, President and Founder, The Strategic Coach

With the Traction tools in place, we now have faster growth, increased profitability and great people that we enjoy working with. Our growth rate has averaged over 20 percent per year. These results put us in a position to sell our company to a public company for above-normal multiples and reacquire the company after just a year and a half.
--Rob Dube, President, Image One

The Traction principles have helped me build a solid leadership team, crystallize our plan, and create the discipline to take the organization to the next level.
--Sam Simon, President & CEO, Atlas Oil Company

Traction is far and away the most potent and useful approach I've ever seen for running a successful company. The content is bulletproof! You have to read this book.
--Vince Poscente, Bestselling author of The Age of Speed

The concepts in this book have revolutionized our enterprise. We are highly profitable, adroit, flexible, and have a results-oriented culture. Working with Gino's tools has made a meaningful difference in who we are today.
--Albert M. Berriz, CEO, McKinley

The tools are sensible, effective, and a must for any organization, entrepreneur, or leader. I personally use them within my national real estate valuation company and this year we grew 150 percent, after being in business for more than 14 years.
--Darton Case, President, The Entrepreneurs' Organization

The concepts in Traction saved our company from mediocrity and propelled us to excellence. They have provided us with the tools to deal with any situation that might arise and better yet, to head off some situations at the pass. We now have all the right people in the right seats doing the right jobs.
--Rob Tamblyn, President, The Benefits Company

By applying the Traction disciplines we have been able to grow revenue by 50 percent over the last three years and profit exponentially more.
--Robert Schechter, C.L.U., Ch.F.C., Chairman, Schechter Wealth Strategies

Traction is a must-read. What you will learn are the same tools that have enabled me to grow my business 100 percent over the last three years while staying balanced and having fun. This book will change your life.
--Bernie Ronnisch, President, Ronnisch Construction Group

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

An entrepreneur since the age of 21, Gino has had an obsession for learning what makes businesses and entrepreneurs thrive.

At 25 he took over the family business, which was deeply in debt and in need of help. After turning the company around and running it for seven years, he and his partners successfully sold the company.

Gino then set out to help entrepreneurs and leaders get what they want from their businesses.

Based on his years of real-world experience, he created the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®), a practical method for helping companies achieve greatness.

He has personally delivered more than 1,900 full-day sessions for more than 135 companies, helping them implement EOS. He is also the author of the award-winning, best-selling book Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business, which has sold over 1 million copies, as well as five other books in the Traction Library that have sold almost 2 million copies.

Gino is the founder of EOS Worldwide, an organization that helps thousands of businesses implement EOS with the aid of an international team of over 400 professional and certified EOS Implementers and online support. There are more than 130,000 companies using the EOS tools worldwide.

Gino is now devoting time and energy toward helping entrepreneurs-in-the-making get a huge jump-start on taking their entrepreneurial leap, which is why he created and wrote Entrepreneurial Leap.
