purpose & niche

Straticos helps open-minded, forward-thinking business owners, leaders and leadership teams optimize your vision, traction and health. And we do this, in order to help you generate more, with less. By more, we're passionate about helping you maximize your time, talent and teamwork. By less, we're obsessed with helping you minimize your issues, challenges and frustrations. 

The foundation to our professional services, support and investment criteria [and results generated] - is helping you learn, implement and leverage EOS® [Entrepreneurial Operating System®]. 

EOS is an extraordinarily simple, but incredibly effective - business building and management "operating system" [proven and embraced by 100,000+ companies, worldwide] - that sets, drives and delivers the essential structure, mechanics and disciplines for continuous success. In addition, we also teach/coach EOS complementary tools, programs and solutions that help optimize leadership, management and accountability.

The most important benefits about our experience, expertise and leveraging EOS - is how they collectively impact what we do, and why we do it: which is to help you grow strong, healthy and prosperous.

In business, work and life.

Straticos + EOS® =

Real. Simple. Results.

Vision Building Day 2: Another day with your leadership team to master the Focus Day tools and continue using the V/TO tool to complete your vision, clarify your Marketing Strategy, 3-Year Picture™, 1-Year Plan and priorities for the next 90 days.

EOS Sessions

To be fully effective, it's always best to conduct your sessions off-site. As important, you need a facility that helps get everyone energized, stay focused, collaborate, and generate the tangible results we need. That said, you and your leadership team can enjoy and be enthusiastic about, conducting your sessions at our super comfortable, inspirational, and highly productive Traction Optimization Studio in downtown Carmel, Indiana.
