The Ultimate Customer Service Experience
In this keynote, Jason Young explains how a company can deliver a transformational service experience — Servicetopia — with each and every customer encounter. What is Servicetopia? Imagine an environment where all employees are aligned with the mission and vision of the company and every day they go to work committed to providing exceptional service to every customer. They understand their purpose in the organization. They perform their duties with passion as they seek to meet every customer’s needs. They are professional and work tirelessly to build customer loyalty. They follow a carefully outlined process to ensure customer satisfaction and eliminate pain and frustration. And in the end, they add a little pizazz to surprise and delight the customer. Purpose. Passion. Professional. Process. Pizazz. These are the hallmarks of Servicetopia, the behaviors required for delivering exceptional customer service, everyday. You’ll discover that a commitment to Servicetopia can help your organization make a name for itself and impact the bottom line.
Inspired Talent. Do you have IT?
Employee engagement is paramount. Without it, organizations struggle and employees remain disengaged, operating on the low end of performance and fulfillment. Research confirms only 29% of the workforce is fully engaged – meaning they like what they do, feel supported, productive and rewarded. The other 71%? Most are just trading hours for dollars with their heart, head and focus somewhere else. As a result, companies get less than they need from their workforce and suffer with poor results in sales, profit, growth, turnover and customer satisfaction. The answer? Inspired Talent. Because truly engaged employees are those who are motivated, committed and fulfilled. Motivation comes from within. Commitment is a decision that is made. Fulfillment is the result. And none of these happen unless leaders inspire – which is the powerful external influence that drives employee engagement. In this presentation, Jason Young shows leaders how to create an environment where employees are inspired, engaged and can do their best work. In this inspirational keynote, Jason teaches that Inspired Talent is the result of proven leadership practices that lead people to their full potential and help them, not just survive, but to thrive. Participants will come away with the practical insights and tools needed to have what every organization desperately needs…Inspired Talent.
