Creating a Culture of Values and Excellence
Did you know that organizations that have a laser-like focus on shared ethical values and customer service are ten times more profitable and actually last longer than those organizations that don't ( research: 8/24/09 Business Week & Crawford International 2005)?
This 1-day program about developing a values-based customer service approach to your business is informative, fast-paced and highly interactive, complete with experiential exercises, role plays and individual study. Beginning with a review of quantitative data relative to the importance and value of ethics and values, this dynamic program will provide attendees with 1) new perspectives on creating and using a code of ethics, including the identification of related actions & behaviors and 2) a detailed plan for leveraging shared values in a practical way to direct and drive an exceptional level of customer service.
Building on this foundation, participants will be presented with a new level of communication awareness and learn the fundamentals of consumer buying styles, strategic communication, implied messaging and planning techniques that will help them delight customers at all levels and positively drive word-of-mouth.
Finally, participants will create a working plan that is tailored to their specific job description that will enable them to immediately apply these techniques and skills.
