Thank God It's Monday®

Is everyone in your company more excited to go home on Friday afternoon than to show up on Monday morning? Do you set goals for growth but never seem to hit them? Do you feel like your employees’ limited beliefs about what is possible sometimes keep the entire company from moving ahead?

Good news – it doesn’t have to be that way.
Better news – you don’t need to fire everyone and start over to make change.

You can see profound, transformative change in a very short time. Our Thank God It’s Monday® clients see it all the time. As a New York Times bestselling author of Thank God It’s Monday: How To Create a Workplace You and Your Customers Love and founder of TGIM-U®, Roxanne shows executives how to produce better results with less stress by rapidly improving the leading predictor of future growth and profitability: an on-fire performance culture. TGIM puts the FUN back in business, and there’s nothing more fun than high performance!

It’s all possible…

TEG has been great for us, especially with helping us understand that it’s all about value building relationships with each other and our customers. It’s important for us all, regardless of our role, to become experts, and we all have a commitment to our customers. Banking can be fun! Don’t be on the fence – it’s a no-brainer to attend this. Once you make your customers happy, your sales will increase and there will be huge opportunities for your bank.

We not only met EVERY goal in ALL our branches, but we exceeded many of our goals by 100 percent! Our entire organization acts like a team! I can’t imagine any CEO who wouldn’t want this.

C. Hoffman
President and CEO, The Richwood Banking Company

We grew 21 percent while decreasing FTEs by 11 percent and raising net interest margin 52 basis points since working with you. 100 percent of our new loan customers are referrals from current customers or centers of influence. Not a week goes by when I don’t get a call from a client complimenting my staff. I don’t even remember it happening before we made this shift. Our top 100 customers are sending business our way, and we’re not really having to work hard to get new businessAnd our lenders don’t even try or ask to meet the pricing of the competition. They know they’re worth more. A few years ago, they wouldn’t have believed they were worth the extra money.

K. Miller
President and CEO, The Farmers Bank

We hit our goals for next year a year earlier—all in one year!

I confess – for quite a few years we’ve been running a small fire department at this bank as it applied to growing the bank. Having a fire break out, reacting to the bell like Pavlov’s dogs, racing to the fire and calling in some outside firefighters to help, and usually putting it out – only to have another one erupt and, ultimately, the same problem burst into flames again.

It took a while to actually admit there might be another way. When we began working with Roxanne, for the first time, I saw a genuinely different, organized approach. We got buy-in for and installed procedures that worked and kept working. As a consequence, we hit our goals for next year a year earlier—all in one year!And we had one guy who far exceeded the chart of what we thought was possible! But honestly, I feel this is just the beginning.
