Seek Transformation - A Quick Conversation

For weeks after birth, a caterpillar eats continuously; growing nearly 100 times its initial size before it spins itself into a chrysalis. Within the chrysalis, the caterpillar’s robust body completely breaks down into a DNA soup, where it takes several more weeks to reform into a beautiful, adult butterfly. Like the foraging caterpillar, a team spends time nourishing their group culture in order to prosper. However, in order to evolve even further, there comes a time when even the strongest teams need to break down and transform their fundamental team roles, structure, processes, goals, and vision in order to grow.

Are You Going to Get That? (from No Problem!)

Being interrupted by a ringing phone when you're dealing with a face-to-face customer can be a real challenge. It's like you're being pulled in two different directions at the same time. So, what do you do? Well, in most cases, the best approach is to focus on making sure the customer you're dealing with face-to-face takes priority. To do that, ask the customer for permission to put the caller on hold and wait for their response. Then, ask the caller to hold. And finally, thank the customer for waiting and finish up.

Like it or not, you're going to deal with angry customers from time to time. And no matter how much they might test your patience, it's really important to keep a mindset that there’s “no problem” to big that can’t be solved. First, start by just letting the customer vent and acknowledge their emotions. Let them know you're listening by restating or agreeing with something they've said. If necessary, gently confront the angry customer to help gain control of the situation. And then, when you feel it's appropriate, begin to move the customer toward a solution.

There are a couple of things you can do. Be sure to empathize with the caller. Assure the customer that you can help.

Policies and procedures are good and necessary parts of doing business.

But working to find a real win-win solution - even if that means getting approval to make an exception to a policy - is one of the best ways to ensure long-term customer loyalty. To do that, always be sure to empathize with your customer. Reassure the customer that you will do everything that you can to help. Then use your best judgment to make it right.

As an administrator, teacher or staff member… others look to you for help… especially in times of need. One of the times you may be asked to lead is when the unthinkable happens. It may help you to think of preparing for an armed intruder event in the same way that you prepare your staff or students for a fire, an earthquake or tornado. By taking a few minutes to train for one of these events, you know what to do in the very unlikely event that it actually happens. The exact same thing holds true when preparing for an armed intruder event.

Powell returned in 1871, to map the river and to conduct geological studies. Powell inspired courage and belief in the men that he led and he never put any limitations on his abilities.
