Diversity in Hiring: How Seasoned Talents Advance Customer-Centric Goals

Linda had been a housekeeper at a motel for 25 years when she decided it was time for a change. She didn’t stray too far from her calling, but decided to apply for a job as a housekeeper in the new Fitness and Wellness Center that had opened in her hometown.

I just happened to be the General Manager of that center and immediately realized Linda was an absolute gem. She ticked the boxes on my 4 non-negotiables, 1. (High) Character; 2. (Great) Attitude; 3. (Wonderful) Personality; 4. Emotional (Intelligence). My acronym for this is C.A.P.E. because these Team Members are Superheroes, and Superheroes wear C.A.P.Es 🙂

From Lip Service to Real Service: Closing the Customer Care Gap

From Lip Service to Real Service: Closing the Customer Care Gap

“Talk is cheap,” goes the saying, and nowhere is this truer than in customer service. We’ve all encountered businesses singing praises of their ‘unbeatable service,’ only to be let down by the harsh reality.

The Paradox of “You’ll Love the Service”

Rediscovering Free Will: The Power of Autonomy and Self-Determination

Rediscovering Free Will: The Power of Autonomy and Self-Determination

In the complex tapestry of human existence, the concept of free will holds a prominent position. Victor Frankl, a renowned psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor, and Nir Eyal, a prominent author and behavioral designer, shed light on the significance of free will in our lives. Feeling autonomous and self-determined, that we have the power to exercise free will, is a fundamental psychological need that impacts our mental health.

Although we cannot change past decisions, the power to shape our current decisions and determine our direction lies within our grasp.

Cultivating Wise Compassion Leadership: A Necessity in Modern Leadership

I have been pondering on an article I recently came across in the Harvard Business Review, “Compassionate Leadership Is Necessary — but Not Sufficient,” written by Rasmus Hougaard, Jacqueline Carter, and Nick Hobson. I thought it could be of great interest to you as well.
