  21. 21. When faced with a business decision, ask: “ What will this do to help bring the customer back again?” Employee Suggestions?
  22. 22. All rewards do not have to be cash. In most cases, cash does not have the best affect on the long term productivity of the employee or company.
  23. 23. What does not make sense is investing to train employees, then failing to match that effort with follow through that creates a long-term relationship.
  24. 24. MAKE EMPLOYEES feel like WINNERS

  26. 26. The marketplace looks totally different from where the employee is standing.
  27. 27. Remember... the best employee is a tenured employee. Treat each one as if the goal is to keep them from going to the competition.
  28. 28. IF YOUR EMPLOYEE HAS A PROBLEM... YOU HAVE A PROBLEM! Try to settle the complaint QUICKLY.
  29. 29. Employees my not always be RIGHT. There is no percentage in telling them they are WRONG. Show them how to benefit themselves
