Episode : #289: Mike Paton, Dentistry in 2020 is a Team Sport

Podcast Description

Ladies and gentlemen, Mike Paton is HERE! 

You’ve probably heard Kiera talk about ‘traction’ more than once on this podcast, and now, we get to talk with one of the masterminds behind the idea. In this episode, Mike and Kiera discuss Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) and how it brings structure and discipline to entrepreneurial companies; ways to keep motivation alive in 2020; and what pivoting and innovating should look like.

This year has been challenging, but the world still needs excellent dental care. Don’t forget that YOUR practice, YOUR team, and YOUR equipment can provide that. As Mike says in this episode, the best entrepreneurs will succeed profitably no matter the constraints.

Mike Paton has been learning from entrepreneurs for most of his life. Today he works hard to give back – as an award-winning speaker, best-selling author, Certified EOS Implementer, and as the visionary for EOS Worldwide.

Mike discovered the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS) a dozen years ago while trying to take a $7 million company to the next level. Feeling stuck and more than a little frustrated, his search for answers led him to Gino Wickman and EOS. Having helped run four entrepreneurial companies, Mike instantly recognized the power of this simple, holistic “way of operating” a small business. He quickly became a passionate advocate, joined the Professional EOS Implementer Community, and dedicated himself to helping other entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses.

Since then, Mike has conducted more than 1,200 full-day sessions with the leadership teams of more than 110 companies and helped thousands more entrepreneurs by sharing EOS in dynamic talks and workshops the world over. During that journey, Mike wrote Get A Grip: An Entrepreneurial Fable with Gino Wickman and then succeeded Gino in the role of visionary for EOS Worldwide. In that role, he leads a close-knit community of more than 250 Professional EOS Implementers around the globe – each passionate about helping entrepreneurs run better businesses and live better lives.

Mike lives in Minneapolis with his wife, Kate. Together they have five boys.
