Improve Your Customer Service

Bottom line. It is the driving factor for most companies. Make your bottom line and you have been successful for that quarter. Management pushes their sales teams to get out and sell and turn leads into customers, but there is a department that managers often overlook that has a major impact on the perception of a business: the customer service team. 

     Think of customer service people as the gatekeepers of your company. If it’s great, then people are going to think your company is great. However, if your team is rude or apathetic, then suddenly, that becomes the overall view of your business. Customer service is a tool that companies should leverage more often.

What would sales be like than?

Tips to Manage Your Time

5 TIME MANAGEMENT TIPS

Recently, driving down the expressway I peered to my left to see a woman who in the middle of traffic was putting her lipstick on as if there just wasn't those last couple of minutes before walking out the door to do this.  I thought to myself, "how often do you feel this way at work-that there just aren't enough hours in the day?"  Time, and the lack of it from a management perspective is an ongoing struggle for many managers.  Not only are they managing staff to ensure their work is done, but they also have their own work that needs to be attended to.
