ad Plants And Their Owners

10 Mar 2014

But we can judge a physician on what we do understand. We know what organized and clean looks like. We know what friendly appears and seems like. We all know what waiting too long believes like. And we certainly know what dead office plants looks like. With past experiences we can judge how our doctor visit stacks up to these experiences. And based on the entire experience we’ll decide whether to return or not, and depending on the experience, will either refer our pals or tell the planet to avoid with an online lousy review. Is that sensible? Certainly not, but as management consultant Tom Peters says,

“Clients perceive service within their own unique, idiosyncratic, mental, irrational, ending-of-the-day, and totally human terms. Perception is all there is!”

When there are lifeless plants in the waiting-room, the consumer is stating to himself, “If they cannot even deal with the office plants, why do I want them taking good care of me?”

While a common manager at a resort up north in Michigan, I served as an adjunct instructor for several years educating customer support in the local community college. To their credit (pardon the pun), the school made my customer service class a prerequisite for the medical government paths and office government. They understood that it is not exactly what you know; it is the way you say it. By the end of the term, a survey was provided to the pupils on how I did. Did I cover the aims defined in the syllabus? Was I accessible after hours? All the survey questions were focused around the educator. I studied the students on their school experience, within the class session discussing client feedback. My query was, “If there was something you may improve in your schooling experience, what would that be? Very few answers were specified as to the the administration thought was the college expertise. Instead the improvements ranged from the parking lot to the restrooms. What does the parking lot have to do with higher education? Logically, nothing. Except to the female student who is taking night courses, everything. What does the public toilet have to do with the instruction offered? Nothing. However, as a female student wrote in her survey, “During winter months, the restrooms are really so cold, I can’t even believe after going in there.”

Several weeks ago, I needed to see a dentist. She gave me the name of her tooth doctor, when I requested a buddy for a referral. I asked why she thought the dental practitioner was so great. She said the waiting room had wireless fidelity, they provided free bottled water and juice and there was a big flat display TV in the waiting-room. And, as an afterthought, she mentioned the dentist was pleasant, also. The most important characteristics of her dental encounter were the touch points that eliminated the waiting time and angst of the understanding of going to the dentist for the first time.

So do not be overly focused on merely your expertise. Your customers have no strategy to evaluate you on everything you understand. Nevertheless they can rank you in another touch points that they have experienced before. Take some time to examine t customer experience. Identify most of the possible dissatisfiers and remove them. Subsequently replace them with some thing positive.
