Removing Hassles for Customers

Creating Disney Magic podcast Lee Cockerell Jody MaberryTo create a magical experience for your customer, you need to identify and remove any hassle the customer may encounter.

In this episode of Creating Disney Magic, we examine how you identify what is getting in the way of your customer having a better experience.

First, look at customer complaints and look for trends.

Next, ask your customers directly. Offer them something in return to sit down with you and answer questions for an hour. Find out what you do well and how you can do better.

Finally, sit down with your employees. Ask what you do well, how you can do better, and what rules and procedures they don’t like.

With those three steps, you can find the areas creating the most hassle for your customers. Now work on a new system, guideline, or procedure to remove the hassle from the customer experience.

During the episode, I explain some innovating ways we have removed customer hassles.

What if You Can’t Make a Change in Your Organization?

Creating Disney Magic podcast Lee Cockerell Jody MaberryIs it possible to initiate change if you are not in a leadership position?

Some organizations are reluctant to change. Sometimes a boss can think they know everything.

All you can do is to finesse in a change. Ask your supervisor if they are interested in hearing your ideas and input about your job. Be clear that when you bring an idea forward, you are willing to work it yourself and not put more work on your supervisor.

Understand, you may not be able to have any impact on change in the organization. If that is the case, don’t be willing to stay in that environment too long if it frustrates you.

Referenced in this episode is the book Winning by Jack Welch.
