Blake H. Phillips EQI, Ltd., President & CEO

The biggest benefit our implementation of EOS is the organization-wide alignment that comes with utilization of the VTO to drive and measure organizational performance.

Scott is that unique type of EOS implementer who unites groups while simultaneously driving them to challenge conventional wisdom and engage in constructive debate.  Scott has pushed EQI to embrace the EOS toolkit and use it as force multiplier across our US, China, and Indian teams.

Torrance Richardson, A.A.E. President and CEO, Gerald R. Ford International Airport Authority

Implementing EOS® has brought better focus on our team and our business. It has improved trust amongst the leadership team so we can have constructive critical conversations. It has also provided the clarity we need to sort between the tactical and strategic work we must accomplish. EOS has greatly improved our strategic planning resulting in an easy to read and understand strategic plan that is shared with our entire organization. Scott is a sincere, compassionate person that helped our team and business be candid about our current situation, our desired future, and partnered with us to map the course to get there. He knows our business well enough to ask those outsider perspective questions to ensure they are part of our discussions. He is a great facilitator that keeps us focused, having fun, and very productive.

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.

Jennifer Owens, President of Lakeshore Advantage

As a facilitator, Scott is skilled at pulling out the best in everyone on the team, keeping the EOS® process moving and productive, and making it fun. As a leadership team we are aligned and executing at a higher level, and Scott and his skill with the EOS® process has been a key reason for that shift.

Mike Ellis, CEO of Spindance | Michigan 50 to Watch Company

We worked with Scott to help us create a strategic plan and develop the capacity of our leadership team to execute on our plan while preserving the culture of our organization around our core values.  He is a skilled facilitator that kept us moving while still allowing time for the important and sometimes difficult conversations that have to happen in an effective planning process .  Scott brought a valuable perspective because of his extensive experience working with a variety of high growth organizations.  If your goal is healthy growth, I recommend Scott as a partner.

Mike Harris / Mat Nguyen, Founders of Worksighted | Inc. 5000 Award (7x), Michigan 50 to Watch Company

We have been on EOS® for over a year now, and it has been a game changer for us.  When we made the internal decision that we wanted to implement EOS® in the spring of 2014, we knew that going through the process on our own would be difficult and having an Implementer would drastically increase our odds of success.  We reached out to Scott and he accepted to help us go through the entire implementation process as well as facilitate our full adoption of EOS® on an on-going basis throughout the past year.  Scott has been a key partner to Worksighted for 4 years now and has helped our team with coaching and leadership development.  His knowledge of EOS® and his passion for working with growing, entrepreneurial companies, has been a great combination and a perfect fit for us.  Scott’s facilitation has made the process fun, engaging, and honest.  He is 100% responsible for our ability to rapidly implement EOS® and embrace it company-wide.

Pat LeBlanc, CEO of EBW Electronics Inc. | Michigan Small Business Person of the Year 2015, Inc. 5000 Award (3x), Michigan 50 to Watch Company

I have done many strategic plans in my career, and the EOS® process is the best I have experienced because it helped our leadership team develop the Traction to effectively execute on our plans.  As a facilitator, Scott’s leadership of our planning session was off the charts effective.  A unique benefit of working with Scott is that he teaches while he facilitates, and I actually learned to be a more effective leader/facilitate more by watching him work.
