Customer Service!
What comes to mind when
you hear those words?

Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person


to person.

Mother Teresa

"The single most important thing to


remember about any enterprise is that there
are no results inside its walls. The result of
a business is a satisfied customer."
Peter Drucker
Business and Economics Author

"Do what you do so well that they will want


to see it again and bring their friends."
Walt Disney

Don't spend time beating on a wall,


hoping to transform it into a door.

Raving Fans Concept


1. Decide what you want. Think so far out of the box
that you can't even see the box anymore. How
extreme can you take your vision when it comes to
customer service?
2. "Discover what your customer wants." Simply, ask
them. Stay in touch with our core customer. See
what their needs and wants are. Blanchard
explains that there may be wants from customer
than don't fit our vision. These customers need to
go elsewhere. We can't be all things to all people.
3. "Deliver what you promise, plus one." Exceed the
customer's expectations when you perform.

Examples
Ritz Carlton
Domo Gas
Nordstrom

Methods of Creating the Raving Fan


Experience
Consistency, consistency, consistency
Related to how its delivered

Start small and get really good at it


Meet first. Exceed second.
Systems and training are key.
Be committed to the one percent rule.
Improve just one percent per week
Thats$52%$improvement$per$year!$

Be flexible
Related to what is delivered

Translation
Blanchard & Bowles indicate the bottom line before
you ever reach page ten. People expect bad goods
and rude service, give them junk and they are not
surprised.
Just what they expected. The customer service
slogan based on the service that many provide their
customers should be No Worse Than The
Competition.
We have created a world where we find our
expectations easily failed. Therefore, when you do
exceed your customers expectations, it is almost as
if one has taken a yellow marker and highlighted the
event.

Raving Fans Whats the point?


We spend thousands and thousands of dollars
on marketing to bring people to our facilities.
Unfortunately, we seldom invest in having those
people who utilize our services become
marketers!

Rule #1: Decide What You Want.
We want people to walk away from your offices surprised at the service
theyve received.
They should be amazed at how friendly, approachable and helpful you are.
They should be shocked that when they call your offices at how they are
treated as an important person.
The way they are treated should begin with the front desk and scheduling
and how the phone is answered (Vice President of First Impressions)
How will our office handles a call from a client/patient or referring physician
who is looking for information (Vice Presidents of Evangelism)?
What about people who enter our office to pick-up information or something
else?
