“It took a while to actually admit there might be another way. When we began working with Roxanne’s team, 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 the 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.”
