You Promised It Would Be Here Today! (from No Problem!)

You Promised It Would Be Here Today! (from No Problem!)

There's going to be times when you (or someone in your organization) will have to deal with a customer whose expectations aren't being met - for whatever reason. Stay away from making excuses, grilling the customer, or questioning what a co-worker has promised. Instead, stay positive and keep your focus on what you can do to solve the customer's problem. To do that, thank the customer for calling. Do everything in your power to fix the problem. Offer the customer something extra. And be sure to leave things on a positive note by renewing the relationship.

It’s A Policy Thing (from No Problem!)

It’s A Policy Thing (from No Problem!)

Policies and procedures are good and necessary parts of doing business. But they can easily become an excuse for just telling the customer what you can't do... rather than letting them know what you can do. Obviously, every situation is different. 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.

We all know that customers can get frustrated when dealing with automated phone systems, right?

Empathize with how frustrating it can be. Reassure the customer that you're willing to help. And be sure to keep your tone of voice and choice of words positive.

Accurate Communication - A Quick Conversation

Accurate Communication - A Quick Conversation

In New York, taxi means a “black and yellow,” in India a “rickshaw,” in Thailand a “tuk tuk,” and in Haiti a “tap tap.” Travelers in foreign countries can be very surprised by another culture’s definition of taxi. Therefore, even with the most common of words, understanding the context in which that word is used is critical to understanding the significance behind what is being said, whether communicating across the world or across the hall.

Acknowledge Vulnerabilities - A Quick Conversation

Hermit Crabs live in empty seashells. As they grow they have to find larger shells to move into. In the search for a new shell, the crab is particularly vulnerable to predators. When organizations undergo growth and change, such as becoming more diverse, it often challenges employees to grow in new ways. Just as the crab feels vulnerable when it changes shells, employees in this time of transition may feel particularly susceptible.

Whales possess the ability to adapt what they hear and then make it their own. Adaptive communication is a skill that is also critical to organizational growth. Keeping something the same just “because this is the way we have always done it” hinders an organization from innovating and progressing.

Navel oranges are neither native to Florida nor a natural tree. Navels are a graft of two citrus trees, the root stock and the bud wood. Both these parts contribute different, but essential resources that are necessary in order to produce sweet oranges.

Craft Your Message With Purpose - A Quick Conversation

Craft Your Message With Purpose - A Quick Conversation

An enduring whimsical tradition that many people are familiar with is the act of placing a written message in a bottle and tossing it into the sea. The composer of the message has no idea who is going to receive the message or when they might get it -or if anyone will at all. Not knowing the end recipient of the message limits the ability to communicate with intention. Communication across differences is often done in a similar fashion.
