Shift: Move from Frustrated to Fulfilled

In SHIFT, Derek teaches you a 5-gear process. Each gear uniquely moves you from frustrated to fulfilled. Within each interactive chapter, you’ll drive up to powerful questions and practical exercises—calls to make today the day you are inspired to change.

About Me

First and foremost, I’m a husband to my beautiful wife, Rachel, and I’m a proud father. We’ve been blessed with two curious and energetic daughters, Ellie and Mia, who constantly remind us of the simple joys in life.

Much of my day is spent as the Head of Employee Success and Director of Training & Development for ETE REMAN, which is the nation’s largest remanufacturer of transmissions and a 2021 USA Top Workplace. At ETE, I teach 100 managers the core principles of leadership, management, and personal development. Additionally, I create roadmaps for the following initiatives: culture, employee engagement, talent acquisition, leadership development, talent management, onboarding, and employee wellness.

What are they saying about Derek?

I attended one of Derek’s workshops and found it to be very informative and energizing. So much of the material applies directly to the business environment. I’m very excited to have the rest of my team hear his message!

Derek is awesome! He is hands down one of the best leaders I’ve ever met. It is rare to find someone who not only knows what it means to be a leader, but takes action and does what it takes to be a leader. He gets it.”

Cat Kung

Adjunct Professor at Cardinal Stritch University

Derek has been, by far, the most influential “boss” that I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. He inspires me on a daily basis and teaches me things that will serve me well in future endeavors.”
