Your Company Is Only As Extraordinary As Your People
There is nothing more powerful than employees’ passion and initiative to make customers happy to spark long-lasting word of mouth about your brand.
Your company is truly only as great as the people who embody the mission of your organization, those who go above and beyond to see the company succeed and to make your customers happy. The brands that understand this fundamental principle empower their employees. The brands that understand this simple truth trust their employees to be the best spokespeople, the voice of the brand, they can be. Brands like that don’t need huge marketing budget because they have an army of employees and customers telling their story, thus sparking the word of mouth that is way more powerful than any ad.
A Business Is Only as Strong as Its Team
In my lifetime I’ve encountered very few companies that were not only able to grab my attention, but earn my loyalty and advocacy year after year.
Wells Fargo is one of them. Great products that work for me and my family is only a part of the story. Fantastic service that I get at pretty much any Wells Fargo branch I walk into is what keeps me coming back. My local branch is my favorite, where everyone knows you and goes out of the way to make you welcome. Joe Strother, a teller, always wears ear-to-ear smile when he greets you, asking you about your day. Not only that, he is a master at anticipating your needs. For example, one day, overhearing a conversation over the intercom with my four-year-old daughter (who is a huge fan of Wells Fargo’s lollipops) in which we couldn’t decide on the flavor of the lollipop to ask for, he provided all three flavors without being asked to do so. To you it may seem like a little thing, but to my daughter (hence to me) it meant the world. Sometimes we forget that it isn’t all about grand gestures, it’s about little things.
A Strong Business Is Only As Good As It’s People
It truly is about little things. Like when you and your child are tugging a drink back and forth, almost spilling it, while having lunch at Red Robin and the lovely waitress (thanks, Chalamar!) brings you an extra cup (child-proof no less) so that you could split the drink (again, without even being asked). I have always been a fan of Red Robin, but caring touches, such as Chalamar’s attention to details and her passion for making customers feel like they are the only ones at the restaurant, not only contributes to customer satisfaction, but sparks word of mouth. Case in point: not only you are reading about these brands in my post, but I also mention them in my numerous keynotes, interviews, and offline conversations.
