I recently sat down to conduct an interview with author Mike Paton about his book entitled “Get A Grip” which is the companion to the bestselling book “Traction” We discuss both books in this interview, because the content of “Get A Grip compliments the content in “Traction”.
If you are like most entrepreneurs your daily life is filled with new challenges and opportunities. It is not an easy job to juggle everything and keep your sanity. I personally know because I am an entrepreneur and I have worked with hundreds of visionaries with similar challenges . What I appreciate about “Get A Grip” is that the book provides the reader with tools and practices which if followed will make their life simpler and more efficient.
An important point that Mike Paton makes during our interview , is that many visionaries/entrepreneurs don’t have an integrator in their business. So just what is an integrator? This is someone who compliments the visionaries role by who’s role is to guide, direct the organization while seizing the opportunities.
The integrators role is to analyze the P&L, remove obstacles, work on legal and compliance issues and overall handle the daily operations of the business. A visionary can not operate their business without an integrator. Now while this may sound obvious to many of you reading this, believe me many businesses have not identified who the integrator is, or they don’t have one and this can lead to chaos. The visionary is not the right person to be playing this kind of role, nor do they usually have the business acumen for the role of a integrator.
Mike spoke about the Six Key Components and the philosophy of EOS Worldwide the company behind both books. Mike stated that “First is that there is a “Vision” shared by all in the organization, Second is that of “People” putting the right people in the right seats. Third, track the “Issues” keep an issues list. Forth, is Traction to keep momentum you need to have meetings that Mike refers to as “Rocks”, Fifth is Process that is the documentation followed by all. Sixth and lastly is Data, keep a scorecard and measure the progress of the organization in the critical areas.”
If you are really interested in simplifying your business and being provided with great tools and techniques I highly recommend reading “Get A Grip” and “Traction” both great books on business growth and organization.

I hope you enjoy this great interview with Mike Paton, author and EOS Worldwide Integrator.
