So before working with Exit Momentum, some of the frustrations that we had in our team was just a lot of minute meetings, not really a whole lot of sitting down together and coming up with what we were trying to work on long-term. It was just more sporadic. We would get a lot of work done, but we didn’t really have any type of long-term strategy and alignment on that.
After working with Exit Momentum, the team functions as a lot more of a cohesive unit. We’re aligned on our vision, we have our values, our beliefs, we have the goals that we’re trying to accomplish, and then we have the tasks that we’re working on; so we work collectively. The other thing that we notice is we’re speaking the same language. So when we’re talking about things, that’s part of the whole process; we get each other, we have our own lingo, and that’s really what Exit Momentum has brought to the table for us.
We’ve looked at other implementers within the US and Derek really resonates with not only the industry that we’re in, but he could really punch through any type of objections that we give and really get to the root cause of what we’re trying to talk about. He’s certainly highly relatable in the automotive space, but I can see him in any business because of his directness. I always like to see somebody that’s not accommodating, when you’re trying to push and implement something new, you need to be a little bit forceful. Because there’s that inevitable resistance to change within an organization when they try something like this. And Derek makes that process a lot smoother than I would’ve expected it.
