DawnFoote - EOS Testimonials

Dawn Foote
Owner, Managing Director of Katapult

“From about Chapter 3 of reading ‘Traction’ I knew that EOS was something that we had to implement, the core principles made sense along with the practical tools.

In the first 6 month we dealt with so many issues, and I mean actual issues – not just symptoms. It wasn’t easy – but the progress, the Each week, month, quarter – the progress is clear.

I knew Dean would be a great fit to work with us, he provides the right mix of understanding, providing challenge and reassurance . He keeps us on track and provides a very sound reasoning board.

In terms of how EOS differs from other leadership training or business coaches, is that the tools of EOS are the best I have ever seen and implemented. They are practical and effective. They reduce the noise and help keep us focused.

Since working with Dean, we have learned the ability to truly step back and see the business in whole new way. When we were told to ‘trust the process’, it worked.

When looking at the problems we have solved since we started the work… Wow…how much can I say! It feels like we have done a crazy amount of ‘solving’ over the last 9 months. Including; alignment in the leadership team, structured roles and responsibilities for all, having a clear vision, solving a number of people issues, including being able to bring a number of the right people in to join the business that have had an immediate impact. Also, the meeting structure across the business departments has been transformational.

EOS has helped us to deal with the actual issues in the business, not just the symptoms and the value of clarity and alignment is getting us where we needed to get, faster. We would recommend Dean and the EOS to any business that has hit the ceiling and for any leadership team is looking at how to break through to grow.

Barry Hynd
Financial Director / Integrator

“Dean is a breath of fresh air. Accommodating, but also very direct and not scared to ask the difficult questions.

EOS is a simplistic (but not easy) system for Leadership Teams. There is no bulls*t, no buzzwords or management speak. It’s helped us to embrace change and move forward to enable us to grow. EOS is also unapologetically direct. This could catch out some businesses that are not ready for the level of transparency the process brings. It certainly highlighted the issues we are facing, but they are the ones that need to be resolved.

The biggest issue we have solved to date, was getting everyone on the same page and ‘rowing’ in the same direction. It got us focused on where we want to go as a team. We now have far more productive meetings which is a HUGE timesaver and this will only get better as we roll it out across the teams.

Knowing we can contact Dean whenever we have an issue is a real plus point. You feel like Dean’s bought into making the journey with you and invested in making it successful.

I would recommend this process to any business where people are the central focus.”

Simon Jones
Client Services Director, Digital Visitor

“The EOS process has been a revelation for our business and Dean has been a huge asset in helping us through this process.

Let’s be completely honest, its not easy and puts you in some pretty uncomfortable places but this has to be done if you want your business to progress to its full potential.

Any business that is prepared to commit to the process and has the help and guidance that Dean provides can achieve great things, you have to experience this to understand the full potential of your own business.”

Anthony Rawlins
Director, Digital Visitor

“As one of only two EOS implementers in the UK, we felt lucky to be able to work with Dean and I must say he doesn’t disappoint.

His knowledge of EOS is excellent and unlike many advisers or consultants, he’s been there and done it and therefore adds realism and experience to his coaching…

The only reason I would hesitate to recommend Dean is because I don’t like sharing!”

Darren Oliver
Director, Futurform Limited

“The SME arena would be a brighter place if more businesses signed up to the EOS Process!!

Why did we feel that we needed to implement the EOS process into our business? Simple. We wanted to grow faster, increase our profitability and make us the best at what we do.

With Dean’s help we have brought focus and accountability to Futurform, allowing us to cement the perfect structure for our business as we continue our exciting journey. By implementing EOS tools like the ‘Scorecard’ and ‘L10’s’ we have an instant pulse on our business ensuring problems are met head-on weekly.

We are in the final stages of creating a laser focused plan to elevate our people and our business to the next level. This would not have been possible without Dean’s support and guidance.”

Mark Walker
Managing Director of Penta Precision.

“EOS is the missing piece of the jigsaw for a business to succeed.

Managing team health and identifying the right business tools are some of the most difficult aspects of any entrepreneurial journey. Businesses are complex and keeping everything simple is key. With EOS, less is most certainly, more.

After engaging with several consultancy projects over the past few years I had been left feeling jaded. So upon learning of EOS, we spoke to several of Dean’s referees, took a long hard look at ourselves and decided as a team, that engaging with ‘Grow or Die’ would be the quickest path to seeing the results we wanted, by implementing EOS within our business.

Most other leadership trainers and coaches only deliver a part of the picture – centred around the area of their ‘specialism’. Whilst there may be a time and place when that insight may be invaluable, implementing EOS builds the entire framework for success to underpin your business.

EOS is a holistic, simple operating system that models the essence of best business practice. It is clear and straight forward for employees at all levels to follow. Cutting though all the “management speak” to bring about alignment, it will take any business from Good to Great – irrespective of its industry and market place.

Dean’s depth of EOS understanding, together with his natural desire to help, his humility and flair for facilitation, offers the perfect combination for working together to implement EOS.

I would recommend EOS to any small and medium size business. Follow the shockingly simple strategies and behave like the super performing top businesses.

“Dean has helped us to transform our business, allowing us to make decisions easier and plan for the future.

We now have a clear plan in place for the next 4 years which will help propel us into a different league. If you want to increase your profit, become more productive then Dean is your man.

I would happily recommend Dean and the EOS Process to anyone.”

Dean's insight has transformed our business. The methodical framework of EOS works so well for us but Dean's input and ability to ask the right questions goes far beyond his role as an EOS practitioner.

I was a bit sceptical before the session, sometimes these types of courses can be all jazz hands and no substance but I was very pleasantly surprised. The first session felt really positive, every theory was well explained and every toolset felt relevant. Walking through each scenario with our own real business challenges rather than "hello world" examples meant everything was useful to us and by the end of the session I actually felt excited about tackling even our trickiest tasks.I would also say these courses are only as good as the host presenter and Dean was great. Clear, articulate and very good at keeping to the agenda whilst allowing for deeper discussions where needed.Looking forward to our next meeting.

Dean's quarterly sessions have been immensely helpful in getting us to step out of the day to day, see the issues and opportunities in the business and set some clear rocks for making progress. Dean's approach to running the EOS methodology is amazing. He has such a natural style for getting the information out of you, and getting the team to be clear and on the same page. Since working with Dean, our business has gone from strength to strength and we're super focused on what is important (and what is not).

Dean has been a true inspiration and great Implementer in helping Penta along its EOS journey as swiftly as possible. We're in transformation from Good to Great to become Great by Choice. Why operate your business in any other way than modelling the superstar performers who are best in class!

Having stumbled across the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) after reading Rocket Fuel, I knew this process was exactly what we were looking for to scale and grow our business with the right people. We started self implementing the process but realised after 9 months that we hadn't quite got it right and we needed some help. Our choices were, continue to self implement, Hire a consultant, hire an EOS Integrator. That's when we came across Dean.Dean got stuck straight in with the entire team and has been instrumental in helping the Senior Management Team get on the same page with a clear vision and goals and helped us drive the business forward. He continues to support us outside of his quarterly and annual sessions and his passion for seeing his clients succeed is ceaseless. If you don't know what the EOS system is, get stuck into the books by Gino Wickman and get Dean on your side to help implement and accelerate traction in your business, I would highly recommend him, his EOS tools and the process.

We've worked with Dean and the Grow or Die team for the last year and have seen a significant difference since working with them to implement EOS. Having an expert to help us effectively leverage the tools, overcome roadblocks, enable change and keep us accountable has been essential. It also helps that Dean and the team are incredibly friendly, professional and knowledgeable, which makes for a very productive partnership 🙂

How does EOS® help?

EOS helps people to get what they want from their businesses. We do that by providing a complete system with simple tools to help you do 3 things we call Vision, Traction®, Healthy.

  1. Vision, to first get your leaders 100% on the same page with where your organisation is going and how it is going to get there.
  2. Traction, helping your leaders to become more disciplined and accountable, executing consistently to do things well and achieve every piece of your vision.
  3. Healthy, helping your leaders to become a healthy, functional, cohesive leadership team, because leaders often don’t function well together as a team.

From there, as goes your leadership team so goes the rest of your organisation.  You get to the point where your entire organisation is crystal clear on your vision, all much more focused, disciplined and accountable in executing your vision, gaining consistent traction, and advancing as a healthy, functional, cohesive team.
