HTSA Members Embrace New Operating System After Two-Day Workshop
HTSA members met this week for an intensive two-day business management seminar called the HTSA-EOS Masterclass in Rosemont, Illinois. The Masterclass, described as an "execution effectiveness program", is authored by entrepreneur Gino Wickman and led by EOS Implementer Todd Smart of Smart Partners.
Launched about eighteen months ago, HTSA’s Masterclass Program is a new concept in member education that utilizes outside subject matter experts on topics the group management deems critically important. These outside experts then work in conjunction with the group to custom-tailor content in their area of expertise, such that it better meets the pragmatic needs of HTSA members.
The very first Masterclasss created for members was the Sell More Audio Masterclass held over two days in Kennesaw, Georgia. Since then, the group has produced Masterclass programs on several other topics, on technologies, vendors, and business education.
Although the process of commissioning the creation of a Masterclass program is one which requires a significant investment by the organization, the group considers it an investment in the future of its members…and, ultimately, the group itself.
HTSA members were first introduced to EOS in a special presentation at their Spring Members Conference that took place at the end of March in San Diego. EOS implementer and author Mike Paton gave a dynamic presentation that delivered an overview of the EOS system, discussed several key program tools business leaders find effective, and showed how leaders can apply the lessons to build their businesses. By the end of Paton’s presentation, HTSA members enthusiastically lined up to receive an autographed copy of his book titled, Get A Grip: How to Get Everything You Want from Your Entrepreneurial Business.
The Entrepreneurial Operating System was created by successful entrepreneur and author Gino Wickman who has sold over 300,000 business books related to EOS. Wickman began his entrepreneurial career by taking over a struggling family business when he was only 25-years old – ultimately turning it around and successfully selling it. His Entrepreneurial Operating System is now being used in more than three thousand businesses worldwide and select EOS tools are being used daily by tens of thousands of companies.
