Creating a Culture of Service Excellence                                                                         

The delivery of excellent service should be viewed as a way of life within an organization.  World-class customer service doesn’t just happen, it must be planned and managed if it is to be delivered consistently. This means engraining it into the fabric of the organization so that it becomes known that service excellence is “how we do business”.  To do this, a service philosophy and service standards need to be established so all employees know the expectations of how to deliver great service.  The customer experience must be orchestrated to ensure all opportunities to create exceptional and memorable moments will happen consistently.  This program will identify the leadership actions needed to create and sustain a culture of service excellence.  Participants will:

  • learn how to change ordinary customer points of contact into extraordinary ones
  • learn the service standards one million customers identify as vital to success
  • recognize “Everything Speaks”
  • identify the four key elements that create the customer experience
  • learn the leadership actions that create and sustain a culture of service excellence

The Magic of the “Pixie Dust” – Customer Service, A Way of Life for Disney

How do you translate Disney’s incredible 60 year success into simple strategies and tactics that any organization can apply?  This program takes a look at how Disney engages the hearts and minds of its employees to want to deliver “the extra”, even with no one watching. It explores how they consistently deliver a seamless experience through a common set of defined behaviors that become a way of life in both internal and external service situations.  Through personal stories and anecdotes, audience participants learn how Disney separates itself from its competition.  If you want to catapult your organization from offering ordinary customer experiences to extraordinary experiences, like Disney does, the lessons learned can be easily translated to your industry.

Participants will:

 

  • Learn how to engage employees through a common vision that inspires and motivates
  • Explore a set of behaviors that become guidelines to decision-making
  • Understand the four components that create a differentiation in the customer experience
  • Learn why it feels “magical” and how you can strengthen your brand

 

 

Unleashing Excellence:  How to Deliver World-Class Service

Service excellence is more than smiling nice and maintaining good eye contact.  It is an all-encompassing approach to making excellence the way you do business.  “Everything Speaks” in your environment, what people see, hear, smell and touch impacts their experience.  Even if you never “sell” a product, everyone your organization interacts with is a customer, even your employees.  Today’s customer is looking for value and for the organization that is focused on delivering that value and earning their trust.  This program will share insights on how your organization can consistently deliver superior value to its customers.

 

  • learn how to look through the lens of the customer
  • identify opportunities within the physical environment to impact 
  • learn how to immediately create “wows”
  • identify the barriers that get in the way of excellent service delivery

 

 

Leading a Culture of Service Excellence

Employees look to their leader for an example to follow.  Leaders must walk the talk of service excellence.  Intentions are not enough, actions are what speak.  This program shows how to create a picture of performance excellence and inspire a common vision for all employees to follow.  How to gain involvement and ownership by employees for their day-to-day interactions is covered as it is a critical component for success.  Holding everyone accountable and giving praise and recognition to sustain the culture is also a vital key.

  • learn how to create a credible, compelling picture of the future
  • explore best ways to communicate the vision
  • identify how to increase employee involvement and strengthen employee ownership
  • explore how to hold people accountable
