Superb Customer Service!

by Melanie Benitez | on May 24, 2016

Being recognized as a guest at a hotel was such a great customer service experience! Do you think I am a customer for life? Indeed!
Through our work at Know Your Talents, it is often that the team shows up in cities across the US to provide workshops, speaking engagements, trade shows, etc. and if you are a traveler, you know how demanding traveling can be on your teams, your family and yourself! Yet, when you walk into the hotel, you see YOUR name on the marquis, not the companies, but YOUR name. And it is the hotel’s appreciation for all the time spent in traveling and they want YOU to feel special. And it works! Check out the picture of our own Sarah Blik next to her marquis sign, the sign over the counter when at check-in and they gave her a welcome basket. Such a superb customer service experience!

Gratitude!

by Melanie Benitez | on Nov 25, 2015

While approaching the holidays, most of us think a bit deeper about our gratitude for everything in our lives, our families, friends, health, and for all of the wonderful opportunities put in front of us daily, good or bad! 

 

In our work (if you can call this work that we do!),every day, we are so thankful for the opportunity to enlighten people lives in terms of having a better understanding of their behavior, who they are,  and what really makes them tick and what motivates them.  It is such a gratifying experience to see the lightbulbs go on and see someone begin to grasp the awareness and respect for their own behavior and why they do the things they do.  How cool is that!

 

When we take time to educate ourselves on our own behaviors,  we become even more confident about what we can accomplish and maximizing who we really are.  Embrace your behavior, and respect it!  Then be very thankful for who you are as you are exactly who you are supposed to be!
