It’s no coincidence that principled leadership inspires employee and customer loyalty.
Leaders with a sense of responsibility and commitment to treating people well are far more likely to attract and retain the best and brightest employees. They will also command the respect of their employees who will see it as their own responsibility and exciting challenge to fulfil the company’s mission and to deliver the best customer service possible.
Delivering superior customer service has immediate and long-term benefits to employees. When your service is good, there is almost always an immediate appreciation from the customer. In the long term, it gives employees a sense of pride, ownership and purpose.
Making a commitment to your team and your customers is a win-win-win situation. Customers are happy. Team members feel a sense of ownership and purpose. And your business will gain the trust of its biggest assets (customers and employees).
