I’ve been obsessing lately over how to effectively communicate and train the execution of emotionally engaging service. This is a big topic and the more you dig into it, the deeper down the rabbit hole you find yourself.
I was recently a guest on the Hospitality Mavericks podcast to talk about running a successful hotel and hospitality operation. You can find the podcast at: https://hospitality-mavericks.lnk.to/kc3RgFA or through your favorite podcast app by searching Hospitality Mavericks.
I was interviewed by John Albano with the Lodging Leaders Podcast at the end of 2018. We had a great discussion about how managers can go about building the best team, how to give purpose to employees day to day work, some of the roadblocks that managers deal with in training or developing their teams, and how to build a strong internal culture – one where employees are raving fans of what they are doing.
This is going to be controversial…. With the changing times, if you’re still sending out stand-alone satisfaction surveys asking for feedback on every aspect of a customers’ stay, what information are you really trying to collect?
In a noisy marketplace, relying on a specific product and / or traditional service staple as a differentiator isn’t the best strategy to get your hotel or restaurant noticed. Creating a service experience that feels as though it’s one of a kind is how customer service focused businesses will win in the future.
