At the check-in for all EOS sessions, we ask our client leadership teams to to respond to three prompts:
- Share your bests – one personal and one business – since we last got together.
- What has been working, or not working, since the last time we got together?
- What are your expectations for today’s session?
When it is my time to speak at those sessions, my expectations are always the same – that I expect them to be open and honest in all that they do during the session. Being open and honest is easy to say but often hard to do in practice. Rarely has anyone been taught how to be open and honest.
Fierce Conversations helps fill that gap. It is a wonderful supplement to the EOS tool, called IDS. IDS stands for Identify, Discuss and Solve. I will recommend Fierce Conversations to my EOS clients and anyone else who might find having difficult conversations a challenge.
