Customer Contact: The Enduring Power of “I Get You”

We typically think of customer contact “feedback” and evaluation as judgmental opinions, not as instructive information. We think we need cold, hard data to instigate accurate change. Consider the word itself. “Feeding back” implies nurturance, like returning important nutrients to the soil through fertilizer. Customers will more likely give you their lessons that “fertilize” your customer service if you approach them as a student eager for a lesson rather than as a student uneasy about getting a grade….

Monogram Customer Service with Your Signature Passion

Most customer service relationships do not end with a storm of sound and fury. Most do not end in a fit of dissonance or a caustic conflict. Most companies “vanilla” customer service to death. It is death by indifference, monotony, and negligence. When someone asked my wife the secret of our 50-year marriage, she quickly said, “We got married, but we never quit dating.” Customer relationships are like that as well. They thrive on a rich flavor of engagement, like Neapolitan or spumoni, not plain vanilla…. Read More»

Was this a grade the ol’ boys had missed, a piece of advice, or a roundabout way of admitting, “We don’t know how to grade what you’ve chosen—so go and be tolerant?” Then she added, “You’ll do fine if you’re just tolerant.” Over the next fifty years, I learned that Miss Lena was “in the right church, but the wrong pew.”… Read More»
