We’ll be the first to admit the phrase work hard, play hard is overused by companies. And yet it’s an apt description of life at Dakota. If for no other reason than because here, work often feels like a sport.

We’re a close-knit team that’s competitive by nature. Individually and collectively, we’re always striving to raise our game. Some days we win, and we celebrate accordingly as a team in one of our mind-blowing offices. Other days we lose, and together we move forward, always as a team, ready to conquer the next challenge.

Here’s another overused maxim: We’re like family. But it’s true! We’re 23 people who work together and pull together toward a common goal. And like any family, over the years we’ve developed our own way of doing things, The Dakota Way, and our language called Dakota-isms that only we understand and doubles as our core values.

Core Principles

1.

Focus on what you can control

“There are only a few things you can control in life. In sales, you can control who you call, what you say in a meeting and how you follow-up. Ignore everything else."

2.

Know Who to Call On

“We grow apples and sell to apple buyers. We don’t try and convince orange buyers to buy apples.”

3.

Know What to Say

“Be a master messenger. When in a meeting take advantage of the opportunity and bring your story to life”

4.

Have a Killer Follow-up System

“Most salespeople fall down with follow-up. Use a CRM to manage your follow-up and be 2x-4x more productive.”

5.

Walk the 8 Feet

“Get the most out of your teammates by asking for help.”

6.

Don’t Go Cowboy

“Continually communicate progress to tap into the collective knowledge of your teammates.”

7.

Turn Your Brain Off

“Don’t over think things. Turn your brain off and just do it. Send the email, make the call. Stop thinking.”

8.

Ask

“The only way to get anything in life is to ask. Ask for a meeting, ask for a call. The number of asks you make determines your success.”

9.

Can’t Say “Great Meeting”

“Communicate what occurred in the meeting, the key takeaways and state the next steps. You can say great meeting if they wired you money during the meeting.”

10.

Put It On the Calendar

“If you want to get something started, schedule a meeting. Deadlines work, even if artificial.”

11.

Throw Your Hat Over the Wall

“In order to grow you must innovate. You must try new things and the best way to do that is force yourself into action.”

12.

Get to Yes

"There are no no’s at Dakota. It's easy to say no to a new idea or concept. Do the hard work and Get to Yes. Figure out how to get things done."

13.

Obsess over the Customer

"Do what ever you have to do to make the customer happy to make their lives easier. Answer their questions, give them value."
