  8. 8. Things to keep in mind during service recovery ● Most customers understand that things can or will go wrong. What the don't like or understand or find interesting are excuses. Eg Org hierarchy ● Don’t panic, every problem has a solution ● Avoid assuming in any scenario. ASSUME = ASS out of U and ME. Eg Dessert ● Learn from customer issues but never use it as an opportunity to train or discipline your staff in front of the guest. ● Don’t imagine that you are doing something special for the guest by making things how they should have been in the first place
  9. 9. Simple steps to service recovery ● Listen and apologize if the situation demands for one. ● Make things right and fix the problem as soon as possible ● Make it up to them. Do something extra that makes them happy. ● Don’t let your mouth make promises that your feet can't keep. ● When the unfortunate happens the customer needs a bit more attention but make sure that you don’t make a mountain out of a molehill ● Follow up and make sure he leaves satisfied.
  10. 10. Case study!!!! A loyal southwest customer was unhappy with the service provided by the airline. The agent whom he spoke to at the airport was not helpful which why he decided to write them a very innovative complain letter. The reply given by southwest airline is an excellent example of great service recovery http://pinnacleperformancechampions.org/2013/09/19/southwest-airlines-customer- service-recovery-in-action/
