How you think about the customer is how you will treat them. • Consistency—-Deliver quality service consistently. Set high service standards and live them every day. Help identify “What is Not Negotiable?” in our organization. • Teamwork—-Work as a team to deliver service. A great service team is always looking for ways to make each other look good! Here’s what you can expect: • This seminar is NOT BORING! We’ll play, laugh and learn together. • We’ll explore ways to implement the PICKLE! Philosophy in your personal life and your organization. • Identify the personal strengths you bring to your customer service team. • Use team work to deliver amazingly great customer service. There are activities and interaction throughout the seminar. And, you’ll receive tools and ideas you can take back with you to reinforce and apply what you’ve learned during “Give ‘Em the PICKLE!”Instructor: Mark Alger Date: Tuesday, June 28th OR Wednesday, June 29th Time: 9 am – 12:30 pm Loaction: 575 South Hanksville Park, Hanksville, Utah Cost: $50 per person (40% OFF to Snow College Employees, Students, and Senior Citizens 62 and over)
