Best No Need to Be Cheap If You Are

Release Date: 2013-05-22
Genre: Business & Economics

Inspired by the principles developed in the "Service Profit Chain," Mike Hohnen takes you through each of the steps needed to create an outstanding service business. We live in a world of abundance - there is plenty of choice everywhere. And since 2008 we have experienced significant drops in demand as consumers became more careful. The result is a widening gap between supply and demand in virtually any category you can imagine. When that happens, many companies have a knee-jerk reaction, and the recipe is more or less always the same: initiate rigorous cost-cutting programmes, reduce staff and/or services, offer discounts in many forms, and increase advertising aggressively. This, however, is the equivalent of trying to steer and brake as your car begins to skid on black ice while going through a sharp curve. As you hit that declining demand curve, you need to perform what at first seems like a counter intuitive move: hold your price, increase your services, improve your quality, and narrow your focus in the market. In this book, you will not only understand why but also see how you can do that.

Genre: Business & Economics

In this highly anticipated follow-up to The Renegade Server, Tim Kirkland examines how leaders can focus on creating stronger, more engaged teams and motivate them to improved performance daily. Cultivation - The first responsibility of any Coach is to collect, develop and maintain high performing team members. Readers will discover new ways to improve how they recruit, motivate and retain top talent. Observation - Often, leaders find themselves very 'busy,' but accomplishing little. It's frequently a diagnostic mistake by not taking the time to fully understand the landscape in which we're operating. Readers will learn to observe challenges from multiple perspectives and apply meaningful, lasting solutions. Accountability - Great coaches know that you don't win games by only watching the scoreboard. Readers will learn how to make team members personally responsible for the work, not just the results. Connection - When team members are fully connected to the purpose of the work and the mission of the team, they produce better results. Discover how to connect your team to each other and to the greater goal. Hand-Off - Often, when we fail at Customer Experience, it's not because any one person failed at their role...but because the ball was dropped during the 'hand-off' between team members. Learn how to deliver seamless, customized Customer Experiences by existing as a Coach "in the gaps."
