Shaping Client and Employee Experience

Overview

The experience of your clients and employees determines how likely they are to engage with your brand for the long-term. Hence, shaping experience is instrumental to engaging your employees and selling your services successfully in your market.

How do we shape experience? First we must understand what experience is, its layers, which are much like Maszlow’s Hierarchy of Needs, and how our behavior as service providers, managers, and leaders determine the quality and desirability of the experience. The most unique aspect of this approach is that you do not have to establish any arbitrary divisions between the “experiencers.” In other words, you do not have to tackle one group at a time at great expense or pain and suffering and then move on to the next one at greater expense and pain and suffering. You can accomplish it all at once for the same investment. In fact, it’s more effective that way.

Join us for a holistic analysis of experience. We examine all the people who experience your brand and how agreeable that experience can be if you wield the right tools. We review the needs and expectations of your brand’s community and audience, from those who serve it every day as employees to those who, as clients, look to it for solutions to their problems. We learn how to invite, gather, interpret, and catalogue feedback from multiple sources. Then we learn to transform experience through actively listening with enthusiasm for change.
