Kick-Butt Kick-Off® Seminar

The Foundational Platform for Moving Profitability Needles

Hit the Ground Running

Our Kick-Butt Kick-Off® event is legendary for its immediate impact—within one day—on crucial, business-driving elements of your bank such as the customer experience, culture, and sales. In this illuminating, powerful three-hour Kick-Off session, we:

  • Align with individuals responsible for managing others
  • Substantially elevate those team members’ working relationships
  • Inspire visionary thinking and stage-appropriate accountability
  • Give managers and executives easy-to-use tools to advance their bank’s performance culture

Bring the Whole Team

Almost immediately following that session is the all-employee event. Within that session, the vision of the next level of EXTRAORDINARY is built. Our process helps motivate your team members to commit to an “all in” mindset for pursuing possibilities that inspire them and, until right now, seemed impossible.

This includes tangible, measurable elements such as:

  • Profitable loan growth
  • Multiplied cross-sales
  • Dramatic increases in core deposit MIS
  • Expansion of net interest margin in the short- and long-term
  • Elevate the customer service experience—even if you already have exceptional service

You'll Notice the Difference

Many banks tell us that their customers remark the day after Kick-Butt Kick-Off® how much their experience has improved. We receive commitments to replace any culture-deteriorating behaviors such as gossip, whining, excuses, and blame with healthy agreements using advancing, positive language that inspires, empowers, and motivates.

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.

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.

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.

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.
