There are as many books with advice on management as there are on how to play better golf. Theoretically, if one reads them all you could be Manager of the Year and win the club championship as well.
Alas, that is not likely to happen. But some systems and advice are better than others.
After considering the many others, we chose and use the Entrepreneurial Operating System, or EOS, at Bobby JonesLinks clubs. It’s a powerful way of working on, and in, your business. Here isa shameless plug for them: https://www.eosworldwide.com.
EOS is highly effective in setting goals, holding teams accountable, and gaining traction. The heart of the system is theLevel 10 weekly meeting. For any business, it should be on the same day and same time of day every week and be limited to just 90 minutes. It includes establishing To Do’s and is masterful at IDS – identifying, discussing, and solving issues and problems.
Not only do we use EOS at our Club Support Center (corporate office), but it’s also employed at every one of our clubs and each of their departments. It's expedited results. It’s created accountability. And everyone loves it for that.
We were not so prideful to think we could not use outside help. Bobby Jones Links was pretty good at it, but EOS took our management skills to a much higher level. Hire us, and we will teach your club how to doit too. How many management companies teach leadership and management like this? Not many.
By the way, our Grand Slam Golf Academies can also help your golf game. We can’t guarantee a club championship for you. But we can guarantee a championship management team if you hire us.
The principals of Bobby Jones Links own the company - we are not driven by investor expectations or private equity pressure. The benefit to you is happier associates and long-term thinking.
As a result, we don’t leverage our operational leadership across too many clubs. And unlike many companies in our business, we don’t require long-term management agreements with large breakup fees. If you like what we do, you’ll keep us. For more than two decades our clients have renewed our management services more than any other company.
