How Authentic Leaders Lead with Happiness and Humanity  Shep Hyken interviews Jenn Lim, CEO of Delivering Happiness and the author of Beyond Happiness: How Authentic Leaders Prioritize Purpose and People for Growth and Impact. They discuss how leaders can adapt to the new workplace by being authentic and aligned with their purpose.  Top Takeaways:   ·      As leaders, we need to get more real with ourselves. We want to celebrate the highs in our lives but we also need to recognize our lows and our blind spots. Then, we need to allow the people that we lead to do that, too. ·      In the past year, we have experienced the "Great Resignation" where a record number of 4 million employees, in the US alone, quit their jobs in April. The integration of work and life in a way that has never been experienced before has led people to evaluate what is most important to them and how they can align their lives with it. ·      The experiences that we have had in the past couple of years have prompted many to ask the questions like: How can I align myself and my life with what is most important to me? What are the things that I need to work on and be aware of so I can be a more whole person at work and in life? ·      When employees are unhappy and start leaving the company, leaders can learn so much by asking them why and actually listening. Have an open and honest dialogue as to where your employees are at work and in life. ·      Authenticity goes into the wholeness of a person. Leaders must respect who employees are as human beings beyond their skills and what they bring to the table. ·      The more employees see that they are respected inside and outside their specific role and title, the more they want to be productive, engaged, and loyal. Quote:   "Happier employees equals happier customers equals more profitable and sustainable business." About:   Jenn Lim is the CEO of Delivering Happiness, a company she co-founded with Tony Hsieh of Zappos.com to create happier company cultures for a more profitable and sustainable approach to business. Jenn’s mission is to teach businesses how to create workplaces—led with happiness and humanity—that generate more profit, sustain all people at every level of the organization, and share how we can make an impact by being true to our authentic selves.  Shep Hyken is a customer service and experience expert, New York Times bestselling author, award-winning keynote speaker, and your host of Amazing Business Radio.   Learn more about your ad choices.

    Net Lives Enriched Featuring Fred Reichheld

    27:57

    How NPS Enriches the Lives of Customers, Employees, and Leaders Shep Hyken interviews Fred Reichheld, creator of the Net Promoter® system of management, the founder of Bain & Company's Loyalty practice, and the author of five books including his latest, Winning on Purpose: The Unbeatable Strategy of Loving Customers. They discuss how companies can use Net Promoter Score to enrich lives and drive sustainable growth.  Top Takeaways:   Net Promoter Score is the metric that millions of companies have used for decades to know if they are doing a good job for their customers and their employees. It aims to measure if you have gained your customer's loyalty enough to earn their repeat business and new business from their friends and family. But, in the age of cookies, click rates, and measurable eyeball hang times, is a company's NPS still relevant? And, is your company using the NPS metric correctly? This week, we interview Fred Reichheld, the developer of the Net Promoter score to talk about how many companies are misusing the Net Promoter Score and missing out on the potential benefit that it can help your business achieve. We also talk about how NPS is still applicable in modern business and how it can be used correctly. To put his money where his mouth is, Fred invested his own money in all of the public companies that are NPS leaders. The return on his investments is almost three times the S&P. In today's episode of Amazing Business Radio, Fred and I discuss how you can use the Net Promoter Score to invest in customer loyalty, which pays big dividends!  Quote:   "Who you hang around with in your life influences everything - how you think about success and what's important to you. This is true with who you want to be a customer of, who do you want to be an employee of, who do you want to invest in."   About:   Fred Reichheld, creator of the Net Promoter® system of management, the founder of Bain & Company's Loyalty practice, and the author of five books including his latest, Winning on Purpose: The Unbeatable Strategy of Loving Customers.

    Courageous Culture Featuring Karin Hurt and David Dye

    27:00

    Bringing Great Customer Experience Ideas Forward  Shep Hyken interviews Karin Hurt and David Dye, CEO and President of Let’s Grow Leaders. They are known for practical tools and leadership development programs that stick. Karin and David are the award-winning authors of five books including, Courageous Cultures: How to Build Teams of Micro-Innovators, Problem Solvers, and Customer Advocates. They discuss how leaders can build a culture of sharing ideas, solving problems, and rewarding contributions. Top Takeaways:   Employees have great ideas on how to improve customer experience and leaders want them. So, why do employees hold back their ideas? This week's guests, Karin Hurt and David Dye started an extensive research study with the University of North Colorado Social Research Lab on why employees are holding back these ideas. Here are some quick stats on what they have uncovered from the respondents from the frontlines. ·      49% of Leaders are not asking for ideas. ·      50% of the responders feel that their ideas will not be taken seriously. ·      40% Lack confidence or they don't know how to share ideas. ·      Two-thirds feel that their managers are stuck in the way of doing things ·      56% Do not share their ideas because they feel that they would not get credit for the idea. So, how can companies build a "courageous culture", one that encourages micro-innovators, problem-solvers, and customer advocates within the organization to voice out their ideas? Karin and David developed a 7-step process: 1. Navigating the narrative. Leaders need to get real with their own relationship with psychological safety and speaking up. 2. Creating clarity. Leaders need to communicate that they really do want ideas and what kinds of ideas are needed. 3. Cultivating curiosity. Managers need to proactively go out and ask for ideas. 4. Respond with regard. Every idea that is shared should get feedback at every level. 5. Practice the Principle. Find out what is truly meaningful about an idea and how it can be scaled and applied in different ways within the organization. 6. Galvanize the genius. Communicate what is important in your new culture five times, in five different ways. 7. Build an infrastructure for courage. Leaders need to make sure that courage is reinforced and not undermined.   Quote:   "You don't have to be the CEO to create a courageous culture. No matter what role you are in, if you have a great idea to improve customer experience, your leaders want to know about it. Have the courage to bring your ideas forward."   About:    Karin Hurt and David Dye help human-centered leaders resolve workplace ambiguity and chaos so that they can drive innovation, productivity and revenue without burning out employees. As CEO and President of Let’s Grow Leaders, they are known for practical tools and leadership development programs that stick.

    Leading With We Featuring Simon Mainwaring

    26:30

    How Businesses Can Lean into Their Purpose Shep Hyken interviews Simon Mainwaring, founder & CEO of We First, a strategic consultancy accelerating growth and impact for purpose-driven brands. He is the author of Lead with We: The Business Revolution That Will Save Our Future. They discuss why companies should take part in creating solutions to the significant issues that the world is facing today.  Top Takeaways:   Customers and employees know that customer experience is more than enjoying your product and feeling like they are valued in the way that they are taken care of. It is also in how they feel about your company and what you are doing in the world. Is your company part of the problem or part of the solution? We are facing social, economic, and environmental issues. For the past two years, we have been going through a global health crisis. Your customers and employees are looking at you. They want to see where you stand on these issues and if it aligns with theirs. Why should you care? And, what's in it for your business? The short answer is that people want to buy from, invest in, and work for companies that are doing good. There's a new expectation, not just from customers, but also for employees. How you treat your employees, how they can relate, identify, and invest themselves in your purpose will determine your ability to attract the talent you need and to get the most out of them, even during difficult times. The more you lean into your purpose and share it with your employees, the more engaged they'll be. As a result, you'll retain them longer, they will be more productive, and they'll be more effective advocates for your brand. Quote:   "Employees are the most effective advocates for your brand, your products, and how you're showing up in the world."   About:   Simon Mainwaring is founder & CEO of We First, a strategic consultancy accelerating growth and impact for purpose-driven brands. He is the author of Lead with We: The Business Revolution That Will Save Our Future and the host of the Lead With We podcast.

    Customer Experience Is Science Featuring Colin Shaw

    29:04

    Creating Proactive Customer Experiences  Shep Hyken interviews Colin Shaw, co-host of the Intuitive Customer podcast and the Founder & CEO of Beyond Philosophy LLC, a customer experience consulting company that has been recognized by the Financial Times as ‘one of the leading management consultancies for the last three years in a row. They discuss how companies can use customer science to provide positive and memorable customer experiences. Top Takeaways:   When was the last time that an organization did something for you that you weren't expecting? Perhaps it was to email you if you needed a refill of a product that you previously ordered. Or, to show you articles and videos of how you can maximize the use of something you purchased from them. Whatever it was, it was a pleasant surprise. The world's leading companies like Apple, Airbnb, Amazon, and many more are becoming so in tune with not only what the customers say they want, but they also know how their customers behave and what they feel. They can accurately predict what their customers are going to do next – and what they will want next. This week on Amazing Business Radio, I interview Colin Shaw, Founder & CEO of Beyond Philosophy LLC, to talk about understanding the customers in an even deeper way through customer science, behavioral science, and the journey map. ·      Customer science is the fusion between technology, data, and behavioral science. ·      Behavioral science is looking at what customers are doing as opposed to looking at what customers are saying they are doing. ·      The journey map is looking at the customer journey from the customer's perspective. If you can predict what the customer is going to do next, will it change the way you create customer experiences?  Quote:   “According to Daniel Kahneman, "We don't choose between experiences, but we choose between memories of experiences." You can’t be loyal to something that you haven't experienced.”   About:   Colin Shaw is the Founder & CEO of Beyond Philosophy LLC, a customer experience consulting company that has been recognized by the Financial Times as ‘one of the leading management consultancies for the last three years in a row. He is the co-host of the highly successful Intuitive Customer podcast, which is rated in the top 5% of all podcasts globally by Buzzsprout.  Shep Hyken is a customer service and experience expert, New York Times bestselling author, award-winning keynote speaker, and your host of Amazing Business Radio.   Learn more about your ad choices.

    Customer First, Business Second Featuring Dan Balcauski

    27:47

    Defining Success from the Customer's Perspective Shep Hyken interviews Dan Balcauski, founder and principal consultant for Product Tranquility, where he focuses on helping high-volume B2B SaaS CEOs define pricing and packaging for new products. They discuss what companies can learn from subscription models about focusing on the customer’s journey and feedback. Top Takeaways:   Anything can be a subscription. Whether you are selling razor blades, pens, or a streaming service, the goal is to get the customers to say that they are getting enough value for your products to continue doing business with you. A subscription model solidifies the relationship between the business and the customer but it also requires a focus on customer experience. How do companies ensure that their customers continuously get value over time so they don't leave you for your competitors? What are the outcomes that your customers are trying to achieve? Most of the time businesses focus on operational efficiency, revenue, and profits. These are all great things. But, the problem is that these are not the criteria that the customer is using to define success. Companies need to understand that they are not the center of the customer's world. We need to understand the full journey. This week on Amazing Business Radio, I interview Dan Bacaulski, founder and principal consultant for Product Tranquility, where he focuses on helping high-volume B2B SaaS CEOs define pricing and packaging for new products. Dan takes us through how businesses can focus on the outcomes that the customer is trying to achieve and how they define success. Learn how to put the customer first, provide value, and define success from the lens of those you serve - the customers. Quote:   "We are not the center of our customer's life. We need to understand the full journey. We need to ask, "What is our customer's day to day like?" and "What are they trying to accomplish?" About:    Dan Balcauski is the founder and principal consultant for Product Tranquility, where he focuses on helping high-volume B2B SaaS CEOs define pricing and packaging for new products. He is a TopTal certified Top 3% Product Management Professional and also helps to teach Kellogg Executive Education course on Product Strategy.

    Creating Personalized Experiences at Scale Featuring Noa Danon

    28:16

    Personalization and Creativity in Customer Experience Shep Hyken interviews Noa Danon, Co-Founder and CEO of EverAfter. She has extensive experience leading Product and User Experience teams. They discuss how organizations businesses can ensure customer renewals and expansion by creating personalized customer experiences.  Top Takeaways:   ·      The customer who makes the decision to buy a product may not be the same person who uses the product. Businesses need to get to know and personalize the experience for both types of customers. ·      Businesses may start focusing on one type buyer persona but as they scale, they will need to create different types of experiences or services for different types of people. ·      You don't need to be Amazon to create a personalized experience. Most of the time, it only takes a few questions to figure out what is important to your customers and personalize your offerings to them. ·      Companies need data about their customers so they can continue to automate and personalize customer experiences even as they scale. ·      Data helps with personalization both in sales and in customer service. The more you know about your customers, the more personalized the support that you can provide can be. This creates a confidence between the customers and the business. ·      Leaders need to create an environment that encourages front line employees to bring ideas on how to make the customer experience better.  Quote:    “Every business is a subscription business. Whether it is a typical subscription renewal of the customer deciding to continue to do business with the business, the goal is to make sure your customers come back instead of going to a competitor.” About:    Noa Danon is the Co-Founder and CEO of EverAfter. Noa’s vision for EverAfter was heavily influenced by her experiences as a product manager, where she observed the disconnect between the user and product experience. EverAfter was created exactly to meet that need, allowing companies to personalize the customer experience beginning with the initial contract all the way through renewal and expansion.

    A Holistic View of the Customer Featuring Daniel Fallmann

    26:44

    Empowering Customer Service Agents with Knowledge Shep Hyken interviews Daniel Fallmann, founder of Mindbreeze, a tool that helps companies capture a holistic view of their customers' data. They discuss how organizations can arm their frontline customer service professionals with the technology that can help them offer better customer service.  Top Takeaways:  ·      The lack of information on a specific customer or product is the key problem for most businesses in every industry. Since the data is often scattered across many platforms, it is not readily available to customer service professionals when they need it. ·      Customer service professionals need a one-stop-shop where they can have a holistic view of the customer's information coming from different platforms and departments.  ·      Companies need to equip customer service agents with knowledge of the product as well as knowledge of the customer - who they are, what they search for on your website, and what their questions or challenges are. ·      Having the technology to access the right information reduces ticket escalation. But, when ticket escalations do happen, it also helps customer service agents identify the experts inside the organization to help with non-trivial customer issues. ·      You can predict what the problem is because of customer behavior. For example, what they are searching for on your website? Are they watching your videos or webinars? What issues are they calling in with? Knowing that information can help you come up with implicit problem-solving mechanisms, knowledge base articles, and automatic routines that make sure the problems do not ever occur, to begin with. Quote:  "Customers today have an "I need it now" approach. Customer service professionals need to know how to easily access information for them to understand the context of the customer’s concerns.”   About:  Daniel Fallmann founded Mindbreeze in 2005 at the age of 23, after he finished his studies in computer science. As Mindbreeze’s CEO he is a living example of high quality and innovation standards. His passion for enterprise search and machine learning in a big data environment fascinated not only the Mindbreeze employees but also their customers.

They discuss how brands can provide value to their customers during uncertain times.  Top Takeaways:   ·      When you create good experiences, especially during tough times, you are providing value beyond the product that you are selling. ·      Certainty and stability are important to your customers. This should be seen in your brand's messaging and felt in your customer's experience.  ·      During times of uncertainty, customers want consistent and predictable experiences that meet their standards. ·      Companies have the opportunity to enhance their overall customer experience during tough times.
