Creating Marva-lous Customer Service

Maybe it’s time to re-think your goal of customer satisfaction. My family and I spent the entire day driving through a torrential downpour to get to an important event three states away.

A Man’s Approach to Valentine’s Day

In celebration, I plan to once again partake in the age-old tradition of gorging myself with an embarrassing amount of food, creating gastro-intestinal problems the like of which are rarely experienced in industrialized countries.

For  just  a  moment,  forget  about  productivity.  Forget  about  making  your  company  more  money.  Forget  getting  a  better  performance  review. To  me,  good  customer  service  isn’t  really  about  any  of  those  things.  To  me,  providing  good  customer  service  is  about  the  person  that  I  want  to  be.
