    10. 10. EXPECTATIONS EXPERIENCE EMOTIONS STORIES CULTURE PERSONAL EMOTIONAL CONNECTION
    11. 11. 10 WAYS TO INSTILL CUSTOMER SERVICE EXCERPTED FROM DELIVERING HAPPINESS • MAKE CUSTOMER SERVICE A PRIORITY FOR THE WHOLE COMPANY, NOT JUST A DEPARTMENT. A CUSTOMER SERVICE ATTITUDE NEEDS TO COME FROM THE TOP. • MAKE WOW A VERB THAT IS PART OF YOUR COMPANY’S EVERYDAY VOCABULARY. • EMPOWER AND TRUST YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE REPS. TRUST THAT THEY WANT TO PROVIDE GREAT SERVICE… BECAUSE THEY ACTUALLY DO. ESCALATIONS TO A SUPERVISOR SHOULD BE RARE. • REALIZE THAT IT’S OK TO FIRE CUSTOMERS WHO ARE INSATIABLE OR ABUSE YOUR EMPLOYEES. • DON’T MEASURE CALL TIMES, DON’T FORCE EMPLOYEES TO UPSELL, AND DON’T USE SCRIPTS. • DON’T HIDE YOUR 1-800 NUMBER. IT’S A MESSAGE NOT JUST TO YOUR CUSTOMERS, BUT TO YOUR EMPLOYEES AS WELL. • VIEW EACH CALL AS AN INVESTMENT IN BUILDING A CUSTOMER SERVICE BRAND, NOT AN EXPENSE YOU’RE SEEKING TO MINIMIZE. • HAVE THE ENTIRE COMPANY CELEBRATE GREAT SERVICE. TELL STORIES OF WOW EXPERIENCES TO EVERYONE IN THE COMPANY. • FIND AND HIRE PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY PASSIONATE ABOUT CUSTOMER SERVICE. • GIVE GREAT SERVICE TO EVERYONE: CUSTOMERS, EMPLOYEES, AND VENDORS.
