Our Favorite Quotes:

  • "When you define your core values for your organization, an EOS company is willing to hire, fire, reward, review and recognize people based on those core values. It's a day to day way of life." - Jeff Schafer
  • "I could build a good leader, but I couldn't get a leader to be a good leader themselves. That's where I was capped and so that's what EOS taught me." - Jeff Schafer
  • "We take the leaders in the room, and we discover the core values in the people who are out of the room, because the leaders have brought in great people in the organization, and those core values are often found in the great staff that they already have." - Jeff Schafer
