Have you ever witnessed the process of removing a more than 20 year old palm tree? It is an impressive undertaking! This morning as I was driving to a client, I passed a garden where three guys were trying to chop up a recently removed palm tree’s trunk with a diameter of more than a meter, but with shovels. It was not surprising to me that on my way back, much later the same day, I found them still at it. My logic screamed that this was a job better suited for a chain saw, but here three people were struggling (inefficiently and ineffectively) with the tools they had available to them.

Too often we find that someone was appointed in a specific position, shown how the system works and then left to their own accord – that is it. Then, later when things go wrong, other people in the organization are very surprised to learn that this individual gave poor customer service or does not know the first thing about the email program that they must use etc. This oversight is often highlighted during our customer service excellence programs. When we ask our client’s employees what they do when faced with someone screaming at them over the phone and the majority of them honestly answer that they just throw the phone down in their customer’s ear, it is clear that deficiencies exist. Are you shocked? Horrified? Or can you honestly say that all of your staff is very clear on how to deal with these situations? Not only when a customer loses their cool with them, but also when a supplier or their colleagues lose their cool? Continue reading »
