“If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”
– Fred Rogers
Great customer service starts internally…
I see it. We are well on our way to a great finish to 2019 and a great start to 2020. As with any opportunity, it can be squandered. I have been emphasizing the priorities of the business.
The number one item is “Great Customer Service”, no dropped balls, no last-minute cancellation of meetings, no unreturned emails. Check up on how your client relationship is doing. Make sure that you’re putting in that extra effort to delight your clients. Deliver great work.
You’ve all heard this from me at various times, however, I thought that I should remind everyone that great customer service applies internally as well as externally. If you can’t keep your promises to your coworkers, then it’s foolish to think that you’ll deliver your promises to your clients. See, you can’t be one way with clients and then another way with your coworkers. We are all creatures of habit. Which means each of us to follow patterns of behavior that are relatively consistent. So, if you receive feedback from your peers about your service, your conduct, or the quality of your work, it’s most certainly the experience that our clients have of you.
I’ve always said, “how you are perceived internally is also how you are perceived externally”. So, remember that great customer service works in both directions, take good care of your client relationships, and your Tahzoo relationships too. We hire smart and happy people for a reason…The strength of our company is built on quality relationships and that starts with treating one another with great service.
Let’s go be great!
