It contains valuable strategies you can implement to improve your ability to manage your time more effectively.

Smart business people know that your options to stand out from the competition are limited. Cut prices? Not very profitable. Improve product quality? Certainly, but that can take substantial time and money. The fastest, most cost-effective way to differentiate yourself is to focus on your service. Customer service can no longer be merely average or simply friendly; it needs to be remarkable. Here’s your opportunity to make that happen for your team.

Jeff Mowatt’s on-demand video, “The Art of Customer Service… Influence with Ease”
Some people claim that taking customer service to the next level is complex. Jeff Mowatt disagrees. That’s why he calls his seminar, Influence with ease. Jeff reveals easy-to-apply tips that generate significant results including:

  • Strengthen customer loyalty
  • Increase spending per customer
  • Recharge customer service teamwork

In this on-demand video seminar, Jeff reveals how to:

  • Enhance people’s perception of you by 12% by using a two word phrase more often (hint: it’s not please or thank you)
  • Increase revenues by 16% by asking a considerate six word question
  • Prevent customers from defecting just to save a few dollars
  • Reduce your customers’ buying choices, and increase purchases by 7 fold
  • Position your ideas, products, and services so that people select higher value options
  • Meet and exceed the 7 top customer expectations
  • Connect with clients at a deeper level by expressing your ‘grand intention’
  • Use the most prevalent shift in buying behaviors to boost your business
  • Avoid 5 common expressions that unwittingly raise skepticism in others
  • Tap the ‘humility advantage’ to influence without pushiness
  • Convert an upset person into an advocate of your services
  • Ensure that social media messages about you and your organization strengthen rather than damage your brand
  • Move beyond repeat business to create loyalty (there is a difference)
  • Prevent miscommunications that lead to stress and work overload
  • Boost communication skills both at work and in your personal life
  • Recharge your spirit and brighten your interactions with others

Jeff believes that smart customers no longer value you as an information provider. For information, customers can search Google in less than a second and it’s free. Free is worthless. Fortunately however, there are 3 core elements that customers do want from you – better yet to receive them, they are willing to pay a premium. You’ll discover how to apply these 3 elements so you’re perceived less as an information provider or order-taker, and more as a Trusted Advisor.

Whether you and your team members deal with external customers or internal coworkers you’ll learn valuable skills that generate immediate results.

A unique learning opportunity with Jeff Mowatt
Treat yourself to this entertaining, informative video with award winning speaker, Jeff Mowatt B.Comm, Certified Professional Speaker. Jeff knows his stuff. He didn’t just read the book – he wrote it! He’s the best-selling author of the books, Becoming a Service Icon in 90 Minutes a Month, and Influence with Ease. He heads his own training company and has written and produced four self-study training systems. His Influence with Ease column has been syndicated and featured in over 200 business publications. Jeff has exercised influence himself as a 20-year customer service strategist, former national president of the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers, and business owner.

7 reasons why managers and their teams should view this on-demand video seminar…

  1. You’ll stay current. You have no doubt noticed that technology is changing the face of customer service. Traditional ways we used to interact with customers, win their trust, and keep them coming back are becoming irrelevant. You’ll discover 3 of the most significant trends in customer service, and how you can position your organization to capitalize in response. Ignore these trends and you may find your business model is becoming obsolete.
  2. You’ll learn something. If you’ve ever attended a conference where Jeff was the speaker, you know that he goes beyond theory and wishful thinking. Instead, he shares unique Influence with Ease tips that work in the real world. No matter what level you’re at in your organization, you will learn concepts that earn and hold your customers’ trust – even when things go wrong.
  3. The video format enables you to see Jeff from anywhere at any time. We’d love to see you at one of our live events; whether it’s one of our public seminars or you are bringing Jeff in to do a customized version for a private group or conference. We recognize however, that depending on your location, timing, staff turnover, or training budget, this may not be practical. With the streaming video format you can stop and continue the program anytime after you begin viewing. That means no one – even those who are on vacation or sick – misses out.
  4. It’s economical. The download fee for this video is the same as our best early-bird fee for attending our live seminar – $145. Plus, you’ll receive another 10% off for when you order 10 or more downloads for your team. In terms of return on your investment, consider the payoff of each team member gaining and keeping just one repeat customer as a result of this training. How much does it cost you when an employee inadvertently loses a single repeat customer? Take advantage of this opportunity to improve your own skills and show your employees that you believe in them and expect them to continuously improve their service.
  5. You’ll enjoy it! People pay more attention, learn faster, and retain more when they’re entertained. Influence with Ease is a fascinating topic presented by a master certified professional speaker that can enrich your communications with just about any other human. With Jeff you’ll laugh and learn. That means boosting your business and morale.
  6. You’ll earn a course certificate and possible continuing education credits. To enhance learning retention and ensure that all staff are responsible for completing the seminar, throughout the program participants will be asked multiple choice test questions. Upon successful completion, participants will receive a certificate which, depending on their professional accreditation governing bodies, often qualifies for CE credits.
  7. It’s an opportunity to grow your business. The short-sighted approach to deal with price-cutting competitors is just to respond in kind; cut prices, operate on a shoe-string, hope for better times. The problem is customers will always be able to find someone else willing to provide similar products or services cheaper. Savvy managers realize your best option to prosper is to become a category-of-one, by simply enhancing the skills of the people you already have. You have two choices when faced with competitive pressures… you can either take refuge or take action.

Driver Distraction – 3:22 mins

Driver distraction is a huge cause of collisions. It doesn’t matter if you are talking on your cell phone, texting, eating, or daydreaming – a distracted driver is a dangerous driver. Reduce collisions by concentrating on the task at hand.

It was an Accident… Just One of Those Things – 3:44 mins

When was the last time you had a true accident? Looking back, do you think your accident could have been prevented? Those events we call accidents aren’t true accidents – they could have been prevented.

Protect Your Head… You May Need It – 4:15 mins

Head injuries are the leading cause of death due to trauma. It doesn’t matter if you are exploring a cave, riding an ATV, or if you are at work – wearing the proper head protection reduces head injuries and death. There is proper head protection for every activity… wear it!

Don’t Slip When Getting In or Out of a Vehicle – 3:20 mins

It may seem innocent enough, but getting in and out of your vehicle in icy conditions puts you in a very vulnerable position. Injuries can range from a mildly strained back to death. Realize the hazards as you get in and out of your vehicle.

Statistics are People – 2:55 mins

The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of a million is a statistic. (Joseph Stalin)

When we look at statistics, we don’t think about the people behind the numbers. It’s important to remember that each number was a mother, father, husband, wife, child, friend, or coworker.

Always Think of the Repercussions of Your Actions – 1:30 mins

This is the best tip you can get: whatever task you plan on doing, take a few seconds to think about the repercussions of your actions. Take those seconds to think about what will happen in the event something goes wrong. Take a second to think who else will be affected if something goes wrong and you are hurt or worse.

Road Rage… You Never Know Who or Where the Nut Cases Are – 2:50 mins

It happens every day. Someone upsets another driver either knowingly or unknowingly. The resulting confrontation escalates into violence and someone is hurt or killed. Don’t let it happen to you.

Lift With Care to Protect Your Back – 3:27 mins

A back injury can reduce your quality of life for years to come. Don’t let something as simple as a heavy couch, a piece of wood, or a heavy valve at the workplace reduce your quality of life. You are never too young or too old to start looking after your back. Take care of your back now so you can have a healthy retirement.

You Don’t Have to Fall from a Great Height to be Hurt – 2:40 mins

If you fall from the 45th floor on a construction site, that will make the six o’clock news because it was a spectacular fall. If you trip over a curb, hit your head, and die three days later, it won’t make the news because it wasn’t a spectacular enough fall. Even a same level fall can destroy lives. One of the best tips you can give anyone is to learn how to prevent slips, trips, and falls.

Horoscopes and Safety – 1:50 mins

My horoscope said it was going to be an “accident prone” day for me. It said I should be careful because dangers can appear right out of the blue. Do you really believe your safety depends on how the stars line up? It’s not the stars that keep you safe, it’s you and your coworkers.

Driving and Sleeping Don’t Mix – 3:35 mins

Have you ever fallen asleep while behind the wheel? What can be more dangerous than going down the highway when you are driving and sleeping? This video explains the repercussions of nodding off while behind the wheel and how to prevent it.

It’s the Simple Things That Can Hurt Us – 2:00 mins

Something as simple as a faulty seat belt caused a pilot to fall out of his seat while he was upside down doing a stunt. It seems so simple, yet a faulty seat belt caused a jet to crash. This video points out that, when it comes to safety, there are no simple things – everything is important.

A Crocodile is Like a Machine – 1:30 mins

A crocodile ripped a man’s arm off while he was trying to help it. A machine ripped a man’s arm off when he was trying to fix it. Crocodiles do what they do, and they don’t care who they hurt. Machines are the same. This video points out that respect and caution is needed around both crocodiles and machines.

Animals on the Road – 4:03 mins

Hitting a large animal with your vehicle at highway speed is no joke. People die or are maimed every year when they collide with animals on the road. This video will remind you of the damage that animals can do when they are hit and how to help prevent a collision with an animal.

Arrogance and Safety Don’t Mix – 3:28 mins

We all know someone who comes across in an arrogant way when it comes to safety. It may be the new hire who thinks they know it all, or it may be the mature worker who says, “I’ve been doing it this way for 25 years, and I don’t need to follow the new safety rules.” When it comes to safety, arrogant attitudes get people hurt or killed.

Tragedies Make Us Safer -3:15 mins

Unfortunately, it often takes the deaths of others to make us safer. In this tragedy, over 300 people died, most of whom were children. Shortly after this incident, the law was changed so that an odour was added to natural gas to prevent horrible events like this one from happening again.

Use Caution in Tight Spots – 1:53 mins

It doesn’t matter if you are exploring a cave, working in a confined space on your work site, or fixing your septic tank on the acreage, extra caution must be used whenever you are in tight spots because rescuing you could be very difficult and dangerous.

Pay Attention to Warning Signs – 1:52 mins

It doesn’t matter if you are carrying bear spray on a hike or using bleach at home or at work, warning labels and safety instructions have valuable information. Take the time to read and understand them.

A Man Killed Two Young Girls – 2:35 mins

A man killed two young girls. He didn’t mean to, but he did it just the same. His careless actions and disregard for other peoples safety stole the lives of the girls and robbed their parents of their precious daughters. You have a huge responsibility whenever you get behind the wheel.

If you are exposed to extreme cold in your work environment, you could be at risk of what the Occupation Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) calls “cold stress” illnesses and injuries. These include dangerous conditions such as hypothermia and trench foot resulting from direct exposure. The cold is particularly dangerous because it can slow you down and cause damage before you even know it is happening.

Those most affected by cold stress are those working outdoors or without shelter—such as ocean fishermen, energy exploration workers in the North, high-altitude workers, and construction personnel—but those working indoors with insufficient building insulation, ventilation, and heating are also at risk. To avoid cold stress, you must be adequately protected against cold conditions and trained to recognize the symptoms and treatment of cold stresses.

Upon successful completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify cold stress hazards that can exist on the job
  • Identify the nature, symptoms, and treatment of cold stress
  • Recognize the precautions for protecting against cold stress
