  Do You Care? This is an important question to have the right answer to.  In many of our discussions with our team and associates, this is one of the hot topics frustrating owners and managers.  You can easily fill in the rest of the story on the client side and they clearly know when you care or you do not care. Customer service, customer support and reacting to customer requests is only part of caring.  The AlphaKORians subscribe to Total Customer Experience...

  Work Life Balance Does work get in the way of your life or has work become your way of life?  How do you balance all the work-related tasks you need to complete each and every day, while balancing your personal life? Once upon a time we had three parts of our day which were split equally: 8 hours of work, 8 hours of leisure time and 8 hours of sleep.  Yes looking back this seems like a fairy tale now!  Today' balance...

  Why Do We Need Good Daily Habits? Having a good routine, being disciplined to focus on your responsibilities and your goals will help you achieve good things daily. Prioritizing Tasks Always a challenge!   This is due to the fact every task feels like a top priority. Follow a simple rule:  FIFO which means First In, First Out.  With the exception of adding a certain new task you feel is a higher priority, add it as the next task or near the top of...

  Customer Centricity Doing business focusing on providing positive customer experience in order to generate sales, growth and to lead is customer centricity.  This approach develops trusted long-term relationships and it builds a solid reputation. Other approaches companies might use are profit-driven and volume of products/services making it about just the numbers.  When your approach is strictly about the numbers, you are not customer focused. TCE One of our core values at AlphaKOR is customer focus and the AlphaKORians do a great job!  In fact,...

  Sharing Your Real-World Experience One of the thought leadership trends for 2019 is audiences are hungry for insightful actual case studies and sharing of actual stories.   Theoretical and projections are not going to cut it! What Stories Do You Tell? With all our interactions, clients, prospects, associates and audiences we present to are always seeing the real stories.   You can tell the genuine stories from the fabricated ones.   The genuine ones bring passion, show real pain and problems solved. Sharing Case Studies Do you have...

  What Is Your Leadership Style? In today' business environment, successful leadership styles include being an empathetic leader.  To be an empathetic leader is to truly care about people especially your team you are leading. Caring About Others To care about others is to be engaged with each member of your team.   Ask how they are doing, find out what they are working on, what their successes and challenges are and ask about their personal life and personal inspirations.   Make them feel and understand...

  How can you lead more while doing less? By letting go and delegating tasks while not constantly following up will help you lead more. When you always follow-up on each and every task, you are actually doing more and leading less. I am experiencing a bit of this on a daily basis and catch myself! When I actually do let go, guess what? The team takes care of the tasks and do a great job. This allows me to focus on the...

  Can Making Presentations Be Fun? In the past, my presentations included the standard PowerPoint deck.  I found the number of slides and content just was not the right fit for most audiences.  There were too many!  It felt right to skim some slides quickly and to skip others altogether.  In the last couple of years, I have almost abandoned the script and might glance at it to find a topic. Theses presentations have been a lot more fun and the attendees are...

  This week as we settle in and embrace 2019, I have completed my annual office cleaning, organizing and planning.  Looking at some of the archives always puts me in a happy mood enjoying the past and knowing it just keeps getting better.   I came across stats for the Building Circles blog and wanted to share the most popular one with you.  (If you read it before, go to the last two paragraphs).   Enjoy and keep sending your feedback and comments. Being...

  How are you building your referral tree?  Do you receive and welcome referrals?  Many have shared they struggle to ask for referrals or admit they do not receive many referrals.  Others have shared they built their business on referrals. Here are some things that may help.  I would encourage you to comment and share your experiences that work for you or did not work so we can all learn from it. Simply asking a non-intrusive question is a good way once you...
