We Need Leaders Now—More Than Ever

But if you want to build a thriving organization, you need to be a particular type of leader: one with a compelling vision for the future of your organization, the confidence to communicate this vision clearly to your team and a clear, practical framework to align your entire organization toward realizing this future.

Does this sound like you? Or are you mired in some of the common frustrations we hear from the leaders we meet, such as: Are you stuck?

Lack of Control: You don’t have enough control over your time, the market or your company. Instead of running the business, the business is running you.

People: You’re frustrated with your leaders, employees, vendors or partners. Despite your best efforts, you can’t seem to get everyone on the same page.

The Ceiling: Your growth has stopped. No matter what you do, you can’t seem to break through to the next level. You feel overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next.

Profitability: Simply put, there’s not enough of it—and it continues to shrink.

Exhaustion: You’re tired and maybe even on the verge of burnout. You’ve lost your enthusiasm for work and you have few hopes beyond trying to make this month’s numbers. Work just isn’t enjoyable anymore.

Nothing’s Working: You’ve tried several strategies. None has worked for long, and as a result, your staff has become numb to new initiatives. You’re spinning your wheels, and you need traction now.

After working with hundreds of CEOs and business leaders across over 40 industries to help them differentiate themselves in crowded markets, Kevin McArdle heard these same frustrations over and over again. He also knew he wanted to help his clients find a long-term solution.

On the recommendation of a colleague, he picked up a copy of Gino Wickman’s Traction. Very quickly, he realized that the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®) offered a solid framework to help these leaders deal with these frustrations—and break through the ceiling to create sustainable growth.

Why Choose McArdle Business Advisors?

When it comes to implementing EOS, you’ll have two choices: 1) leveraging internal resources within your organization, also known as "self-implementation," or 2) hiring a professional EOS Implementer. To help you make a well-informed decision for your organization, we put together an article to walk you through the pros and cons: "Should You Self-Implement EOS? 4 Questions to Help You Decide."

Should you decide to hire an outside Implementer, you’ll likely have a number in your area to choose from.

Here’s what makes McArdle Business Advisors different:

Are you stuck?

  1. As your EOS Implementer, Kevin McArdle brings 30+ years of domestic and international business experience to bear in helping your organization gain traction. Kevin received the Star of Excellence twice during his career at Medtronic, and he’s also the founder of three successful companies. When you choose Kevin as your EOS Implementer, you’re getting a seasoned business leader with insights honed from real-world experience.
  2. Kevin has spent the majority of his career developing leaders and high-performance teams to create high-performance organizations. We believe everything begins and ends with the leadership of an organization, and Kevin has spent his career putting this philosophy into action. We’ll help you focus on growing your company’s leaders to grow your company.
  3.  We approach consulting differently. Many consultants create dependency. They build systems based on rules and frameworks that only work when they’re around. We believe in the opposite. Our ultimate goal for you is independence. Kevin is a teacher, a facilitator and a coach who believes it’s his job to equip you with a set of tools. He will teach you how to leverage them, but once you’ve mastered them, you’ll be able to move forward on your own. We can continue to support you with increasing levels of mastery, as needed, but the system will continue to work for you, even without our continued involvement.

If you’d like to discuss how McArdle Business Advisors can help your organization get traction for healthy growth, book a complimentary 90-minute Executive Alignment Session with Kevin today. To schedule your session, call 866-210-6434 or fill out our online request form.
