How Organizations Can Reconnect with the Human Side of Their Business
Shep Hyken interviews John Sills, Managing Partner at The Foundation, a customer-led growth consultancy. He is the author of The Human Experience: How to Make Life Better for Your Customers and Create a More Successful Organization. He talks about the three myths hindering organizations from connecting with their customers and providing an emotional, human experience.
Myth #1. The Myth of Customer Feedback. There’s never been more data coming into organizations through surveys. The danger of this myth is that the amount of feedback convinces leaders that they are doing what matters to customers, but what they actually have is their customers’ opinions about their business. Leaders need reconnect with customers and learn about what matters in their lives. This is how businesses can truly be useful to customers.
Myth #2. The Myth of Customer Loyalty. Customers are only loyal to companies as long as they stay useful. If a more useful alternative comes along, customers are going to leave. This myth is a problem because once organizations believe that customers are loyal, they stop trying. They start taking their customers for granted.
Myth #3. The Myth of Return on Investment. You have to change the mindset that good customer service is going to make you money. The mindset should be that a good customer experience is more efficient and cheaper to execute while a bad customer experience is really expensive to provide.
“The world is a better place when organizations are making things better for customers.”
“Companies focus on onboarding and acquiring new customers, then stop trying to keep them. The truth is, you have to keep earning your customers’ buying decisions all the time.”
John Sills is Managing Partner at the customer-led growth company, The Foundation, where he works with organizations across the world. His first book, The Human Experience: How to make life better for your customers and create a more successful organization, is now available.
