Many entrepreneurial minded leaders have read Traction by Gino Wickman or Rocket Fuel by Gino Wickman and Mark C. Winters or have learned about the Entrepreneurial Operating System® from other sources. They are intrigued by the idea of hiring an IntegratorTM to run the day-to-day operations side of their business.
In recent years, with a pandemic, supply chain shortages and the Great Resignation, leaders are finding that they are working so much in the business, that the more enjoyable stuff of working on the business is being pushed aside. Visionary leaders see the advantages of bringing in a #2 or COO to allow themselves more time to work in the areas they enjoy the most. And if the selection process is handled properly, it can have numerous positive effects for the company and its leader.
But like any key hire, there are many things a leader must consider before embarking on bringing in a Chief of Operations. The Metiss Group has an informative, complimentary eBook which addresses the right approach to the selection and onboarding of an Integrator. We invite you to download it and learn more.
