Dr. Grant Collins
Leadership. Patient Experience. Employee Empowerment. What you’re missing and how it could destroy your office culture
Have you ever made a big decision and then immediately regretted it? That was me five years ago right after I started a practice from scratch. Our phones weren't ringing, we had less than 10 new patients per month, and I was beginning to think we made the wrong decision. That is, until I finally "got it" and completely changed my perspective on how to run a clinic. After studying brilliant companies such as Disney, Ritz Carlton, and Starbucks, I began to truly understand leadership, culture, service excellence and employee empowerment. In this lecture, I'll give you a glimpse of what we have done to go from zero patients per day to seeing over 103 patients per day in our office of 1,131 square feet in under five years since opening.
Customer Service Vs. Customer EXPERIENCE
What is the difference between these two scenarios we are all too familiar with? Customer service is the bare bones transaction between a patient and an office. Customer experience is when team members are there because they want to be and because they realize the importance of their position in the office. In this session, Ms. Cook will discuss the differences and how each team member can make every interaction with your patients a true customer experience. These experiences will build your reputation and a team of all stars that can deliver one at every opportunity. Participants will discover how great customer service can build your practice, understand the difference between customer service and customer experience, learn how to develop tools to train team members to deliver your customer experience, and more.
