Donna Lowry, MD, President and CEO of Ready for School

EOS® has been a very effective tool for our leadership team to define our plan and get our entire organization aligned with executing it. As a facilitator, Scott provides a great combination of forward motion and quiet active listening. An added benefit of having Scott as a partner is the extra resources he provides through blogging and newsletters for his EOS® clients. He has gone above and beyond to support our success!

Nick Nykerk, President of Lakewood Construction | 5x Winner – West Michigan Best and Brightest Companies To Work For®

EOS® has given our leadership team a great focus on the highest priority work and a strategic plan to share throughout our organization. As our facilitator and partner in the EOS® journey, Scott is skilled at giving a team room to talk through issues and guiding us to get back on task. Scott played a key role for us in learning to use EOS® to build and execute on our plans. One positive outcome was a 100% increase in our staff understanding the vision for our organization using the Best and Brightest Companies To Work For® survey. Implementing EOS® has had a measurable impact on our business.

Tony Grover, Chairman of Michigan Venture Capital Association

Scott kept us on pace to complete and implement our strategic plan. The unexpected result was that with Scott’s guidance, the board began operating at a higher level right from the beginning of the process. We didn’t have to wait until the process concluded to realize the impact it would have on improving our association.

Maureen Miller Brosnan, Executive Director of Michigan Venture Capital Association

Scott not only facilitated our five-year planning process, he became a valued member of our team and kept the process moving. We worked with Scott to develop a plan that is vibrant and considered vital to the future growth of our association. Scott is an effective coach. As a result, the leadership skills of our team have been strengthened and we are better positioned to execute the plan the association enthusiastically adopted.

Scott Patchin

Owner and Founder

I started the trU Group to help organizations and leaders in transition realize growth and excellence.

My expertise lies in creating strategy, developing leaders, and then building and equipping both leaders and leadership teams to effectively manage growth. I partner with small- and medium-sized businesses that desire healthy growth and are challenged with having the time for development.

I believe that in transitions there are tremendous opportunities for growth, and tremendous risks for both individuals and organizations; I help organizations and leaders seize those opportunities while avoiding some of the risks becoming reality.

I bring a balance of academic knowledge, experience of working with hundreds of leaders, and the personal experience of leading through key business transition situations, with a passion for people-centered leadership.

Four things that stand out about me:

  1. I am an experienced implementer of EOS® (Entrepreneurial Operating System®), which has helped thousands of companies and leaders achieve healthy growth. This tool helps me create a leadership development class within your business – so you develop as a leader while you grow your business.
  2. I have served as an executive at several medium-sized companies and understand how strategy, teamwork, and strong leadership all play a role in the success of an organization. I have been in your shoes and have personally experienced the challenges you face.
  3. I have coached, trained, and mentored hundreds of leaders at dozens of organizations of varied sizes and industries. I bring solutions and learning based on a deep understanding of some universal truths of leadership, while still adapting the plan to fit your specific need.
  4. My values are: Serve first, Get it done, Kindness Matters, and Learning + Doing = Growth. I don’t ask my clients to adopt these, but I do my best work when these are valued in a partner.
