Steady as You Grow

Focusing on your goals and growing your business are not easy things to do; entrepreneurs who learn how to gain traction will realize their visions faster.

I was not looking forward to driving in what was likely our last storm of the season. I grumbled through the morning routine. Grumpy, slow, and emotionally unavailable to my family.

The little person in my life was bouncing off the ceiling. She had been trying to tell me something and I wasn’t listening. “Mommy, the TREES look like pictures. They are so beautiful!” She began to talk about Christmas, as only a 6 year old can. She was not able to focus on brushing her teeth or finding her boots.

We were both right. My drive was harrowing and the trees were stunning.

The thing is, it doesn’t matter how we react to the weather. It matters that we can acknowledge the reaction as distinct from the event, and carry on. Cold hearted, you say? Smell the flowers and see the trees? There is time for all of it. The ability to distinguish between stimuli and reaction is vital for growth. If we allow ourselves to focus on the external, we can’t focus on our internal compass or personal agenda.

If your business is getting beaten up by the “storms” or if you feel rather wind-blown by the end of the day, WaldronWorks can help. There will be no high-pressure pitch, just sharing some simple, proven tools that have helped thousands of owners and leadership teams. We guide your growth and save your sanity!

Steady as you grow.

WaldronWorks Introduces EOS!

WaldronWorks provides operations leadership to business owners in our community. We can be especially helpful in transitions and when you’ve hit a ceiling and need to grow. Getting on the same page, building teams, sharing your message, sustaining momentum … these are not easy things to do. Just as we update our vehicles and our technology, we all need to update our management tools, too. We would like to share 25 years of leadership experience and the Entrepreneurial Operating System with your team.

Professionals invest years studying, training, and practicing their skills. They can provide excellent products and services. If the structure of their business hasn’t received the same attention, their teams may lack clarity and accountability.

Let’s make sure you are earning the loyalty that your clients and employees want to give you!

  • Is there more apologizing than celebrating?
  • Do your people reminisce about “the good old days”?
  • Whether your company’s bottom line is suffering or soaring, does each day seem really hard?
  • Has the business of putting out fires become your business?

The Entrepreneurial Operating System is a simple, practical approach to business leadership. Engaging with the EOS Proven Process can give your leadership team the tools to clarify vision, execute plans and gain traction, and become a healthier and more cohesive team. EOS Implementers train and support leadership teams in the use of these tools.

EOS was created by Gino Wickman. Following the successful turn-around of his family business, he coached and studied entrepreneurs for years, discovering which tools really worked. He published the book Traction about his system in 2007. To date, more than 10,000 companies have implemented EOS and experienced healthy growth.

Do you wonder what EOS could do for your company? Let’s chat.

Vintage Records

We recently came across several boxes of vintage records while going through an estate.

There was also a vintage record “reproducer”, crank and all! We wonder what to do with them. Are they invaluable or should they be tossed? And we need more needles to access them.

What about the old records in your office?

Is your record retention policy turned with a crank?

Do you still have walls full of crank-powered rolling shelves?

Do you have more than one archive?

How much are you paying to store old paper?

Who is responsible for those private practice records, now that the providers are employed?

Do electronic records age out? What’s the capacity of the system we’re using?

We know that an updated records retention policy is the place to start. But how do we make this a priority?

Hire WaldronWorks to assess the scope and impact of your needs. Project management services are available, too. We’ve done this before and would love to do it for you! Let’s make 2019 the year that you make sense of your inherited records.
