Experience Investigators by 360Connext

When our waiter flagged us down by the door, I assumed we had left something behind or forgotten to sign the credit card slip or something. My husband and I were walking out of a restaurant with our two boys, who were 9 and 12 at the time, while on vacation in Florida several years ago. I was so surprised when our server made such an effort to stop us to say that he appreciated how polite our boys were. “Please’s and thank you’s aren’t very common anyway, but especially

Example: John is upset that his suggestions for improvements to an upcoming project weren’t adopted, so he vents his frustrations about being overlooked or undervalued.

A Boring Customer Service Experience—That’s What Our Customers Want

ShepHyken

Call me boring, but I want the same thing every time—at least when it comes to customer experience. I want it to be good. I want it to be consistent.
