Kathy Lenard's curator insight, June 16, 2013 9:06 PM

My sister-in-law has worked remotely for years and did get a promotion until  she went back to school to get her MBA.  Her boss said he felt she had not shown any growth potential.  It was a GREAT promotion and she was estatic.

Mentor Yourself
This is about self-leadership and having the tools to do so.

streetsmartprof's curator insight, February 28, 2013 9:25 AM

How many of your customer facing people are trained to be able to ask the right questions to get the whole story before we jump in and state our "opinions" of what is going on.

 

Whether in sales and/or technical support, one of the worst things we can do is "tell" a customer where they are at. We do not know without asking questions first. Remember the saying, "There is more to the story than meets the eye".

 

NOTE: Read the input from Karen Dietz on how using questions helps to "evoke the customer's story". http://sco.lt/6wO3QP
