By the time you run a customer satisfaction survey,it’s already too late.You're looking in the rear-view mirror. Dissatisfied customers have departed and told others not to bother. Even more importantly for your bottom line, a competitor offering something you do not will lure away those formerly “satisfied” customers.This does NOT have to be the scenario for your business.No matter what business you are in,you must be able to understand customers’ expectations, even when they cannot articulate them easily. This program provides you with strategies for discovering those elusive expectations and meeting them.
