This begins with establishing your “Clarity of Purpose” for the business: why the company exists, and how it operates to improve customers’ lives. Guided by the stages of your customer journey to add operational reality and granularity, leaders then work out by stage, a first draft of your “code of conduct”: what you must always do for customers and employees by stage, and what you will never do by stage of the customer journey. Pre-work includes the culture audit of leadership behaviors from “I Love You More than My Dog: Five Decisions that Drive Extreme Customer Loyalty in Good Times and Bad.” For this service, please contact Jeanne. - Pre-work: Culture Audit of leadership behaviors, with results presented to leaders. - Keynote: The five decisions made by beloved and prosperous companies. - Workshop: Customer Experience Clarity of Purpose and Code of Conduct. - Takeaway Action: Leadership “recipe cards” to prompt early & united C-Suite actions. - Takeaway Action: Start a “Kill a Stupid Rule” movement to honor customers & employees.
