This week’s Central Florida Entrepreneurship Networking Group meeting was hosted by Dr. Tom O’Neal and featured Chris White, the CEO of Traction in Florida. Traction in Florida, a sponsor of GrowFL, works with Stage II entrepreneurial companies and implements the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS®) as outlined in the #1 best seller-Traction: “Get a Grip on Your Business” by Gino Wickman. EOS® is a complete operating system with a set of simple, practical tools that have helped thousands of entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses.

After working in corporate sales with a Motorola distributor, Chris was eager to start his own company and be an entrepreneur as his parents were before him. Chris entered multiple business ventures, which resulted in the successful creation, growth, and sale of two software programs and one business to Fortune 500 companies. As an EOS® Certified Implementer, Chris combines his passion for helping entrepreneurs and their leadership teams with the skills and experience to help them strengthen the Six Key Components™ of their business by:

  • Teaching every tool in the EOS® Toolbox™
  • Facilitating clarity, alignment, and resolution
  • Coaching EOS® purity, accountability, and helping your leadership team become its best

According to Wickman, founder of the Traction program, successful entrepreneurs should “make sure (the) organization they are growing is 100% aligned with their passion.” To support this concept, Gino developed EOS® in order to help entrepreneurs define areas that need to be improved and worked on to grow and strengthen a business.

Chris dedicates 100% of his time working throughout Florida and the U.S. with companies, helping them to incorporate these principles into their businesses and to become more effective. He believes that the core of a successful business is a leadership team that communicates with each other as well as all other employees. The results that Chris has seen from this program are astonishing. Chris, who is an original member of the EOS® Master’s Forum, states, “on average, our clients grow 18% to 20% annually.” This is astronomical growth and truly shows the strength of the EOS® system.
