I had fun thinking about how to frame what I wanted to say using the idea of “3 Keys.” I thought I would share them with you today.

The 3 Keys to Extraordinary Customer Service

Last week I got a call from a friend to see if I could be a “substitute” Chamber speaker for another friend who had a family emergency. The topic, I was told, was Customer Service. I was happy to oblige. In fact, I had a program that I thought would be perfect and told the…

A Customerpreneur is in the business of managing a gamut of activities and experiences that focus on customers.

Are You a Customerpreneur?

Talk about feeling proud! (Yes, we all need that feeling.)   Over the last week I’ve had several opportunities to talk to people who have attended a customized program I created for the company they work for.   Like so many companies today they are faced with multiple challenges including employee retention, fast growth and…

The human body functions best when it’s positive. Period. Now that we know that – science has proved that it’s true – it’s easy to see that when you leave your employees and customers feeling happy (and maybe even loved) you’ve made a deposit in an emotional bank account that over time compounds, grows larger and actually makes your business easier to grow.

Spring is a Time of Renewal

This last weekend we celebrated the first day of Spring and Easter. It’s traditionally a time of rejoicing and renewal. Is it time for you to renew your vows to “Wow” your customers? Is it time for you to spruce up your commitment to making the positive experiences of people in your process the most…
