Are You Really Listening to Your Customers?

In his latest article for Entrepreneur, C-Suite Network CEO Thomas White explores the biggest entrepreneurial opportunity of the next five years: turning your understanding of your customers, through big data and analytics, into opportunities for real, meaningful connections.

I attended a panel discussion “Engagement: The Key to Winning” during this week’s Advertisingweek conference in New York City. My friend Jeffrey Hayzlett was guiding a discussion about what could be considered real customer engagement. He observed that even with all the data companies collect about their customers, businesspeople often don’t listen to some of the most obvious feedback provided. Then customers stop doing business with the companies.

His example was poignant: At one time, he was a top frequent flier on United and Delta. Two years ago, he changed his travel choices and completely stopped flying on Delta after having flown hundreds of thousands of miles on that airline. The company’s response? Silence. He received no communication from Delta after dropping off the company’s radar.

4 Things You Can Do to Brand Yourself Like a Big C-Suite Executive

Transparency, presence and leading by example are just a few key pieces of advice C-Suite Network co-founder Jeffrey Hayzlett offers to achieve the success of a C-Suite leader. He shares his top tips for knowing your brand and managing your time at Huffington Post.

Did you know that it’s harder to get a seat in the c-suite than it is to become a professional sports player? The c-suite is such an elusive club that the leaders in it seem to be elusive themselves. Even the headliners like Richard Branson and Bill Gates still have an air of elusiveness about them.

But how do those leaders making headlines (good ones, not bad ones) build their own personal brand while in the c-suite of major companies?

Leaders like Richard Branson know the company brand in such detail that they live the brand every day. By knowing their brand, they realize they are an extension of the brand. Unless you’re Lululemon, this is a positive thing for both the company and the c-suite leader.
