    country’s top business consultants, a top-rated speaker, and a world class
    business performance coach. She is the author of "Give up Goals and Results are Yours”. Dr. Jean works with entrepreneurs and their leadership teams to implement a comprehensive business management system called EOS which is designed to help organizations improve their performance, efficiency and profitability.

    priorities, etc. and they communicate it effectively, everyone could be working
    in the same direction for the good of the whole..”– Dr. Jean Oursler
