If you’re an entrepreneur who values a crystal-clear vision, chances are you’re familiar with EOS, the Entrepreneurial Operating System.
“It’s a complete system for managing human energy,” explains Mark O’Donnell, CEO and Visionary of EOS Worldwide. “It’s about getting all your people 100% on the same page with the vision, where you’re going, how you’re going to get there, executing with that discipline, and gaining traction.”
Roughly 15,000 companies have worked with a professionally trained EOS Implementer™, and about ten times that many utilize EOS tools to self-implement. Kolbe Corp is one of those companies that runs on EOS, and EOS in turn uses Kolbe to help solve the people part of running a business.
“Kolbe is something that our implementers teach at a very high level,” O’Donnell asserts. “We’ve always been an organization that believes in simplicity and getting the most done in the least amount of time. And Kolbe can make a huge difference in an organization. It creates a common language amongst the leadership team and the entire organization where you are making a big leap in team health in less than an hour’s worth of time. You understand conflict between different team members. You understand if someone’s in the wrong seat. It is just super, super impactful.”
Likewise, running on EOS has been super impactful for Kolbe Corp.
“So much of EOS is about the people side, and I think that’s where it’s one of the reasons that I was attracted to it,” explains David Kolbe, CEO and Visionary of Kolbe Corp. “It’s one of the reasons that I think a lot of our clients are also attracted because Kolbe is all about understanding the people component, and a lot of business systems almost exclude thinking about people. They just focus on the metrics and the more easily measurable things.”
Kolbe Corp’s mission is to help people use their instinctive strengths to improve their lives in the ways they care about most. EOS Worldwide is dedicated to helping entrepreneurs live their ideal lives. Used together, they provide a tremendous impact for growing companies. They work beautifully together to ensure the right people are put in the right positions.
“Why would you spend time working with people you don’t like, doing things you don’t like, even though you might be good at it?” O’Donnell offers. “If you have a whole company of people who share your core values, who get, want, and have the capacity to do their job really well, the likelihood and probability of you achieving your revenue and profit goals or market share goals, whatever goals you have, just go up so much higher.”

That capacity to do the job is key, and Kolbe is an essential element when reviewing your Accountability Chart™. Is this person really the right person to be there? They may be a great person to have in the company, but should they be doing that job?
“If you respect and care for the people you’re working with, and you’re okay just sticking them in a job that they’re good at but they hate, those things don’t live together,” explains David Kolbe. “Both Kolbe and EOS help fix that problem.”
“It shines a light on those problems, for sure,” adds O’Donnell. “It’s like if you go to a bad hotel room in New York city, and you flip on the lights and the cockroaches run. EOS and Kolbe do that in a lot of ways. You turn on the light, you can see what is going on in a new perspective.”
