Customer Services in Government How can U.S. agencies bring customer service to every level of their organization? This guide explains the role of each department and staff member – from agency leaders to frontline staff to HR and IT personnel – and provides firsthand advice. The illustrations are influenced by the fauvist paintings of André Derain(1900-1910), which are characterized by strong colors and fierce brushwork. Inspiration – Fauvism Sketch process 2.

3 Quick Tips to Prepare Your Home Office for Telecommuting Full Time

If you’re making the transition from a 9-5 office job, there are some steps that you can take to make sure your remote work space is up to the task. Beyond the obvious “must-haves” like a stable high-speed internet connection, a door that closes to keep noise and distractions at bay (especially important if you have little ones), a reliable computer, desk, and other tech required to do your job, you’ll want to take time to consider the following three tips. I found these to be critical to my successful transition to a work-from-home role. Create an Organization & Scheduling System One of the biggest challenges many professionals face when transitioning to a full-time telecommuting role is staying organized and focused. When you commute to an office every day your schedule is built-in, and we end up taking that for granted. Your colleagues schedule meetings, your boss checks in on the status of your projects when he walks by your desk or cubicle, and you take breaks to get coffee or lunch with your co-workers where you can discuss projects and goals. Telecommuting full-time is different in that the small rhythms of a workday that you’ve come to rely on… Read More»

Corporate Social Responsibility & Small Business Management

Corporate social responsibility isn’t just for corporations. Businesses varying in size are understanding that maximizing profits by cutting corners and succumbing to environmental and social irresponsibility is not in their best interest. In fact, profits are coming from a concept not focusing on maximizing profits, but instead focusing on what a company can do environmentally and socially to impact the world in a better way. This is having a profound impression on how customers view businesses. Ultimately, your image will be the determining factor on whether or not they’ll conduct business with you. As a small business owner, adopting corporate social responsibility theories can help you thrive right out of the gate. Read below to find out the significance corporate social responsibility can have on your business.

Creating a work climate in which people would enjoy being under your employ will have numerous… Read More»

Three C’s to Overcome Customer Objections

Wall-to-Wall Satisfaction Jan Carlzon ignited the customer service revolution when he devoted millions of dollars to provide training for each of Scandinavian Airlines’ 20,000 employees. He did this at a time when SAS was losing money. The move led to a new term—“wall-to-wall” training, which emphasizes and sustains high-quality service efforts. Overcoming customer objections in an ethical manner is part of those high-quality service efforts…no matter what product a firm is offering. There are three ways you can help your customers understand the value you or your company can provide, without making them feel manipulated. 1) Consider “Semper paratus” is the Boy Scout motto—a motto that can be used by salespeople and customer service representatives alike. By considering in advance what the customer’s objections might be, you will be better able to respond to them. Here are questions that may help in that preparation. What objections is the customer likely to raise? How will I respond to each of those objections? Is there anecdotal evidence I can provide? Is there an Internet source to which I can direct the customer? Can I quickly enumerate the benefits to the customer? Do I sound sincere? Have I checked with co-workers to learn… Read More»
