A Winning Approach – One Team – Same Goals
In-House sessions are available upon request.
“Anytime a customer comes into contact with any aspect of a business, however remote, is an opportunity to form an impression”.
– Jan Carlzon
What makes service truly remarkable? Great service is not an event, it is a process that requires active, willing and competent participation of all employees.
Any company that pays serious attention to Customer service, has much better chance to increase revenues. It’s the great “differentiator”.
Service must be customer – driven so their satisfaction is the ultimate measure of our success. Customers want to do business with people who make them feel good about themselves and their decisions. How we say good bye is as important as how we say hello. The way we help to solve a dilemma is just as important as its outcome because it will determine the outcome.
We all have important roles in a sequence of events that culminate in a positive customer service experience. Each job is a part of the chain reaction with our co-workers which impacts upon the response of our customers – this linkage is what remarkable service is all about.
We make choices every day about our customers. We make the choice when we say, “This customer is taking up my valuable time” or by saying, “This customer makes my job possible!”
In the book Moments of Truth, it speaks about the quality of contact between an individual customer and the employee that serves the customer directly. There are so many contacts that occur each day, month, year between the staff and the customers. Cumulatively they are in the thousands or even millions. These are called by author Jan Carlzon, “moments of truth”. They ultimately determine whether a company will succeed or fail as a company. They are the special moments when we must prove to our customers that your company is the best alternative to do business with.
Perceptions are everything and during each moment you are in contact with a customer, you are your airline. Make the most of that moment, that opportunity.
“Moments of Truth” is designed to enhance existing strengths and build new ones at same time minimizing weaknesses. Rick says “it is designed with CARE which = Comprehension and Application which can lead to Results Excellence for your company.
In business today, service is not an issue, if you don’t provide service, you’re out of business.READ MORE
