December 21st, 8:00 AM CST, Fargo, North Dakota – BNG Team breaks the mold on traditional business once again and hires Jeff Vanlaningham as their new “Dream Manager.” The company stated Vanlaningham would be starting in January 2019, where his job will entail coaching employees on how to dream big and envision their future.
The concept of a Dream Manager was pioneered by Matthew Kelly in his best selling work The Dream Manager, with other brands such as Pure Energy Wellness, Infusionsoft, and Heart Light Enterprises implementing the strategies Kelly shares. The goal of a Dream Manager is to encourage employees to achieve their dreams, whether personal or professional, increasing employee satisfaction, engagement and reducing turnover.
“Hiring a Dream Manager is a direct benefit to our customers. When our employees are supported, happy and fulfilled, they share that enthusiasm with our customers. We are in a position to impact our employees’ lives so they can pass that positivity onto others.” – Brady Nash, CEO of BNG Team
Vanlaningham shared his excitement over his new position, “I fell in love with BNG Team the first time I spoke with their leadership. They already exhibit the principles The Dream Manager promotes; I have no doubt we will help team members improve their lives and make a real impact on those around them.”
Brady Nash, the CEO of BNG Team, is a lifelong believer of the mantra “people matter” as demonstrated through their company practices to customers and employees alike. Whether it’s their unlimited PTO policy, or their new 34,000 square foot building, this is the next step in exhibiting BNG Team’s sincerity. “I’ve wanted to create the role of a Dream Manager for years. As counter intuitive as it sounds, hiring a Dream Manager is a direct benefit to our customers. When our employees are supported, happy and fulfilled, they share that enthusiasm with our customers. We are in a position to impact our employees’ lives so they can pass that positivity onto others.”
Previous to BNG Team, Vanlaningham spent the last ten years serving as the President of Real Truck – a seventeen-year-old company – and oversaw growing their revenue by 1150%. As a lifetime North Dakota resident, Vanlaningham has been married for 22 years and has three children. When he’s not encouraging others to pursue their dreams, he enjoys spending time hiking and adding to his funk jazz music collection.
