Providing superior service is essential to continued success in a competitive world. But too many executives still regard service as “the fuzzy stuff” – they don’t know how to measure, manage or make it happen on a companywide scale. Watch and learn specific action steps you can take to fly over customers’ rising expectations and immediately improve the quality of service delivered at all levels of the company.


The driving force of a service-focused culture is a group of inspired leaders who are convinced of, and committed to, the long-term value of service excellence. Learn how the leadership team can build the alignment needed to embrace a common service vision and the actions required to make that vision a reality.


Organizations with a powerful service reputation and a superior service culture attract and retain the best talent, achieve market leadership and enjoy sustainable success. See why some organizations succeed beautifully while others fail miserably. Find out what works, what doesn’t, what your organization should do, and what you must avoid.
