About the Author

Gino Wickman’s passion is helping people get what they want from their businesses. To fulfill that passion, Wickman created the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS), a holistic system that, when implemented in an organization, helps leaders run better businesses, get better control, have better life balance, and gain more traction—with the entire organization advancing together as a healthy, functional, and cohesive team. Wickman spends most of his time as an EOS Implementer, working hands-on with the leadership teams of entrepreneurial companies to help them fully implement EOS in their organizations. He is the founder of EOS Worldwide, a growing organization of successful entrepreneurs from a variety of business backgrounds collaborating as certified EOS Implementers to help people throughout the world to experience all the organizational and personal benefits of implementing EOS. He also delivers workshops and keynote addresses.

René Boer has more than 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry helping leadership teams succeed at well-known brands such as Pizza Hut and Jamba Juice. As an EOS Implementer, he's worked with hundreds of bosses at privately-held companies helping them align their teams to achieve a shared vision. He is passionate about helping clients achieve freedom by focusing on what they love to do and are great at doing. René has been a life-long cyclist and organized a unique cycling event, the Sub-5 Ride, in 2010, to support the Davis Phinney Foundation's mission to help people living with Parkinson's Disease live well today. He and his wife Judy live near Chicago, and they have two daughters and four grandchildren.
