About Us

We are certified EOS® Implementers here to help you transform your business and attain the success you always knew was possible. We are business owners and leaders. We have experienced the frustrations of stagnation and the euphoria of success. In other words, we get it.

The Traction Group is a team of Chicago-area certified EOS Implementers. We have been professionally trained by EOS Worldwide and maintain the highest standard of knowledge and expertise in EOS implementation. We will provide you with proven tools and processes to get the growth, success and freedom that you want.

Based on the best-selling book, Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business, the Entrepreneurial Operating System® has helped thousands of businesses reach their potential. We know that many books and systems describe business success, but don’t provide the real-world tools to help you obtain it. EOS is different—it is a proven and self-sustaining holistic organizational operating system that will make everyone in your company accountable for its growth.

Your Traction Group EOS Implementer is not a consultant, but a business coach who will work with you to implement essential and easy-to-use resources to increase your focus and propel your business forward. We don’t just solve the symptoms. We give you the tools to solve the underlying issues that create them.

Contact us for a free consultation. We’ll show you how Traction® will improve your life and transform your business.

Dani Nichols

I wasn’t prepared for how radically working with an EOS Implementer was going to change our company and me. The focus we have now, the energy we have now, is completely different. Our planning is so much more crystal clear than it was before. I feel like our Implementer has empowered me to be the best leader I can be.

Dani Nichols,

Matt Cushing

I wanted a coach to hold us accountable for getting things done. Being able to pick up the phone and ask questions, and rely on our Implementer’s years of experience running businesses is what we needed.

Steve Coven

Our EOS Implementer gave us the tools we needed to set goals and chart a path. I would read a lot of books and think ‘yes, that’s it!’ but none of the books ever told you how to accomplish those things. This is different: their process boils down all these other ideas and puts them into a plan where you can act.

Steve Coven,

Getting Started Is Easy. And Free.
