An entrepreneur since the age of 21, Gino Wickman has had an obsession for learning what makes businesses and entrepreneurs thrive.
At 25 he took over the family business, which was deeply in debt and in need of help. After turning the company around and running it for seven years, he and his partners successfully sold the company.
Gino then set out to help entrepreneurs and leaders get what they want from their businesses. Based on his years of real-world experience, he created the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), a practical method for helping companies achieve greatness.
He has personally delivered more than 1,900 full-day sessions for more than 135 companies, helping them implement EOS. He is also the author of the award-winning, best-selling book Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business, as well as Get a Grip, Rocket Fuel, How to Be a Great Boss, What the Heck is EOS?, and The EOS Life.
Gino is the founder of EOS Worldwide, an organization that helps thousands of businesses implement EOS with the aid of an international team of over 400 professional and certified EOS Implementers and online support. There are more than 130,000 companies using the EOS tools worldwide.
Gino is now devoting his time and energy toward helping entrepreneurs-in-the-making get a huge jump-start on taking their entrepreneurial leap and becoming entrepreneurs. Which is why he created LEAP.
