Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA), the nation’s leading hybrid-retail and custom integration buying group, came together last week at the Sharaton O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont (IL) for an intensive two-day business management seminar called the HTSA-EOS Masterclass. Most of the participating HTSA dealers brought multiple members of their top management team to this deep immersion into the Entrepreneurial Operating System®, an execution effectiveness program developed by entrepreneur and author Gino Wickman.
Led by EOS Implementer Todd Smart of Smart Partners, HTSA members learned how entrepreneurial organizations are unique and how they can benefit from systems that address that uniqueness to help them be more effective. Unlike some other business coaching systems which can be heavy on theory and light on actionable next steps, EOS was created by an entrepreneur specifically for entrepreneurs.
Mr. Smart, who has extensive experience coaching a wide variety of businesses in many different industries – including a custom installation operation - not only helped the group grasp the key concepts of EOS, but he also served as sort of a master translator, assisting participants one-on-one during workshop segments to figure out how to best apply the EOS concepts to their actual business operations.
