Top Core Value: Honest and Straightforward

Dennis can always be counted on for a great life lesson, such as: “A reason becomes an excuse when it stops you from solving the problem.” A hands on leader, Dennis enjoys helping people grow to meet their greatest potential. He says the best way to do that is to be honest and straightforward with his feedback and observations so people can truly understand their areas of growth and begin to make improvements in them, “if you are not honest and straightforward, you will not be able to lead in an authentic way and your results will suffer!”

Dennis is a proud dad to three beautiful daughters and the husband of one beautiful wife. Both him and his wife grew up on a farm (different farms of course), so he loves that they share the same values and understand the importance of appreciating what you have. He enjoys spending time on many of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes with his family and breaking out the RV for family road trips.

Dennis’s favorite Core Value is Honest and Straightforward, saying that practicing this Core Value is critical for anyone in a leadership role.
