All planes are the same in the air. It is the people, primarily the front line, who interact with the passengers, which make the real difference. The way we think about service has changed. Who is responsible for service, how we achieve it and what service means are all being redefined. Leaders now recognize that responsibility for service does not reside in just the customer service department. It resides in every department Every employee shares this responsibility.
Customer service must be thought of as a leadership issue because of what you, as a manager, pay attention to on a daily basis. Most of the messages employees receive comes from their immediate manager as to what is important and what is not. Managers must constantly communicate that the customer’s experience is the team’s number one priority.
Do you have people who take pride in their work? Will they go the extra mile to make a sale, provide a service or take care of a problem, whether it’s their job or not? How well do they work together to create better ways to serve the customer?
In this fast-paced, practical webinar you will learn 5 management practices and 15 guidelines that Build Service Champions that will lead to Customer Service Excellence.
The litmus test of customer service excellence is fairly simple: Is the entire company, including the front line, the support staff, the sales folks, all the managers focused on delivering a superior customer experience? Nothing else counts. Therefore, outstanding service is truly everyone’s business, not just the responsibility of customer service. Everyone, in every single department and at all levels, plays an important role in your customer’s experiences with your organization. Each and every person - no matter if they are on the production line, out in the field or in headquarters - must be committed to being in the “service” business.
This is why a one-time motivational campaign seldom succeeds. It takes enthusiastic employees (as opposed to indifferent or negative ones) to deliver outstanding service and customer value every single day. It takes people who are service champion. They know how to:
- Perform with pride, professionalism and team spirit in everything they do
- Move from “it’s not my job” to “whatever it takes” to satisfy the customer
- Delight the customer through the “3R’s” - reliable, responsive, and remarkable service
