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.

After partnering independently with growth-oriented small and medium-sized businesses over the years, I saw the common obstacles and challenges they faced. I began to implement elements of the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®) with my clients, with great success, then certified as a Professional EOS Implementer.

EOS has helped thousands of companies around the world achieve healthy growth. Using the proven tools and process of this system, I help grow your capacity to lead as you work – essentially creating a leadership development class within your business. You develop as a leader while you grow your business.

Businesses usually turn to an outside EOS Implementer who can bring their process expertise and an unbiased view of the business. 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. I have been in your shoes and have personally experienced the challenges you face.

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 minimizing the risks.

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.

Please contact me for a free 30-60 minute discussion on ways I could help you develop your own capacity as a leader, develop the team around you, or grow a healthy business.
