Book Description

From Booklist Willingham, founder and CEO of Integrity Systems, Inc., has helped large organizations around the world (including Johnson & Johnson, IBM, and the Library of Congress) enhance their customer-service skills through his seminars and training sessions. The major tenet of his philosophy is that the success you achieve directly relates to the value that you create for others. This success secret applies to both large and small companies and is particularly effective for the small entrepreneur, because the lessons in this book must be applied at the personal level, where the interaction between customers and company reps occurs. Willingham does much more than provide training for improving customer service; although he never comes out and says it, there is a spiritual component to his viewpoint. He asks the deeper questions such as, What is your purpose and what brings true happiness? Through this discovery process, Willingham helps anyone from CEOs to office workers discover the rewards of creating value by taking responsibility and tackling problems. David SiegfriedCopyright ?
