Leadership Consulting Tips
- Listen with an empty cup—if your mental cup isn’t empty you can’t listen and learn.
- Understand most conversation is about the other person—not you.
- Set aside your opinion while listening to others—it allows you to “try on” what’s being said.
- Joining people in their conversation, not yours, allows you to open up your power of selflessness.
- View others as who they could be—not who they have been.
- Understand what the “home runs” in your life are.
- Define who you are—not what you do.
- Look at complaints as a commitment to change the circumstances.
- A promise is your word—once you promise something, you can’t take it back, unless that other person allows you to.
- Don’t issue commitments as intentions—most people understand commitments as promises and will hold you accountable.
Personal Presence Tips
- Look people in the eyes when having a conversation with them.
- How you walk into a room gives your audience their first impression of you.
- Listen to your voice tone—is it full of energy and passion or full of monotones and void of excitement?
- When telling an audience you are happy about something, make sure you’ve told your face that also.
- Leaning forward into a conversation portrays your focus on that person and conversation.
- Stride with purpose—don’t purposefully stride.
- Give a warm firm handshake, not a limp or hand breaking one.
- Don’t allow your hands to distract your audience from your message. Your hands may be telling another story than your spoken word.
- Wear clothes you feel good in and receive energy from.
Customer Service Tips
- Ask how you may help.
- Listen—-don’t put your opinion or viewpoint into their dialogue.
- Remember the Golden Rule.
- Define what would be “wow” service that will make you stand out from others in your business.
- The customer signs the paycheck—not the CFO or President of the company.
- Understand the customer’s needs—not yours.
- Most often customers who make a complaint want to be heard and their needs understood—-many times no further action may be required.
- Share the customer complaints with the employees—allow them to be part of the solution.
- Measure and incent on customer service.
- Make the customer service experience magical!
