- Find ways to do something meaningful for your employees around the holidays—or any time of year. Experiences often are better remembered and make a bigger impact than money.
- By investing in your employees, you are investing in the culture of your organization. With a strong culture, you will attract and keep the kind of employees you want.
- Customers will not love your company until your employees love your company. Focus your efforts on the employee experience and the customer experience will follow.
- “Capacity building” is the method by which individuals seek, acquire, and develop the skills and ability to consistently perform at a high level in pursuit of their innate potential.
- The four elements of capacity building are spiritual, intellectual, physical, and emotional. Focus on each of these elements individually and you will improve your entire being.
- “Spiritual” does not necessarily mean religious. In business, it’s about knowing who you are, what you want, and the standards by which you want to live each day. This is crucial to be a successful leader.
- Three common service mistakes even top businesses make are not establishing rapport with customers, over-responding to a single piece of feedback, and not offering customers full explanations.
- You don’t have to tackle 100% of change all at once. Tackle 1% every day, and soon you will see it add up into big, positive change.
