How long is a typical engagement with a Traction Coach?

A typical engagement with a Traction Coach is 18 to 24 months. A Traction Coach typically meets 10+/- times over that period of time. I have worked with clients for a few as 5 sessions over 12 months and have some clients who continue to work with me 5+ years later. The goal of a Traction engagement is getting the team 80+% strong in all Six Key Components of the EOS Model. When one of my client’s teams gets to 80+% strong and is ready to graduate we consider it a time for celebration.
