Theme: Leading The Service-Focused Culture: Creating Superior Service From The C-Suite

A superior service culture does not happen by accident but instead requires committed managers willing to walk their talk - and motivated staff inspired to deliver on-the-spot service daily.

In this hands-on session, participants review the culture-building activities currently in use in the organization; identify opportunities for new service initiatives; learn best practices for becoming a service-focused culture and commit to taking action to align and strengthen the service focus.
