ANN ARBOR: U-M study: Pregnant woman with limited English speaking skills find comfort in prenatal support groups

“Prenatal groups offer all women a strong social support system during what can be a stressful time as they prepare for the uncertainty of childbirth and starting a family – this is particularly true for women who are simultaneously adjusting to life in a new country and also face linguistic and cultural obstacles,” said Little, one of four physicians who provides care at the U-M Japanese Family Health Program clinic that offers bilingual physicians, nursing, counseling, parenting education and other approaches to culturally competent care.

“These group visits connected women with shared experiences, allowing them to get the story from each other, not from lectures.”

85% of consumers will retaliate against a company with bad customer service | Rebecca Grant

85% of consumers will retaliate against a company with bad customer service | Rebecca Grant | Public Speaking | Scoop.it

When a product or service doesn’t work as promised, some people get angry. Really angry.

 

Cloud contact center provider Five9 released a report and infographic today looking at “customer rage” and what companies can do to prevent it. Turns out 85 percent of consumers will retaliate against a company if their customer service needs are not met. 49 percent of all consumers will stop doing business with that company, and 18-34 year olds are three times as likely to vent their frustrations on social media.

Ten Things You Do That Top Leaders Hate

Ten Things You Do That Top Leaders Hate | Public Speaking | Scoop.it

Everyone has things that tick them off, and that's especially true for powerful leaders who frequently deal with people.

 

From half-baked ideas to working around the clock, we've collected the management pet peeves of 10 of the world's most influential leaders.

 

Most items on the list are smart things to avoid in general. For example, media mogul Oprah Winfrey is likely not the only person that considers loud gum chewing unprofessional. And if you ever get the chance to meet one of these people, you'll know what not to do around them.
