Critical thinking and a great customer experience can be hard to master – learn to reflect on art and your business!

Good Service Now Requires “Beating The System”? So Broken. Now what?

SLOW DOWN! Reflect on the art & on your customer service!
Just like this broken glass turned into art by Symon Berger, what do we do now about service to fix it? Just this morning, I went to the grocery store and had to bag my own groceries while an unfriendly cashier just stood and watched (and it wasn’t Aldi’s). And then there’s this… AARP actually has a COVER STORY about service called “Beat The System! Get The Fair Treatment And Good Service You Deserve” by Allan Roth, September 2021. This name says it all. What can we do to set a new framework for service and create a version of service that is not so shattered, just like Berger did with his art?

We’re All Tech Zombies! When they look up, what should your customer experience be?

SLOW DOWN! Reflect on the art & on your customer service!

Art teaches us! Even back in 2015, Antoine Geiger depicts what we definitely see today (Colossal article “The Attention-Sucking Power of Digital Technology Displayed Through Photography by Antoine Geiger, by Kate Sierzputowski, November 11, 2015). His art depicts people of all ages with their faces completely lost in their technology as if the rest of the world around them does not exist.

A “Just Ok” Customer Experience? How Could That Be?

SLOW DOWN! Reflect on the art & on your customer service!

Art teaches us! Everyone is still talking about their experience and the comment I hear the most is “IT WAS JUST OK”. We can’t imagine that customer experience management could be more complicated. One road block replaces another. All that effort for “Just Ok”?

Don’t Blend In! Be Better!

SLOW DOWN! Reflect on the art & on your customer service!

Art teaches us! This one is easy. Just slow down a minute and see if your service stands out as better than the rest or do you just blend in with your competition? In this photo, you can barely see this leopard who heavily depends on being the ability to blend in to his surrounding to capture the next meal. The artist noticed how hidden the leopard was and captured it perfectly.

Pivot like the Argents did, but don’t diminish great service with all this change!

Art teaches us! If we just stop long enough to think about service. Lawrence and Ann Argent changed up the color to blue from sandstone but kept the main bear concept the same. What a great change! Do the same. Change whatever you need to do BUT make sure to KEEP your commitment to great service – it just has to be there as the foundation. You might be going all virtual, or touchless, or starting new products, but make sure there are still far-reaching ways you can WOW your customers. Just like the sandstone color would have been bland, don’t automate so much that your service is bland too!

What does it even mean to say “Art teaches us about service”?

Art teaches us about great customer service! What does that even mean? Blog after blog, maybe this concept had been hard to understand. So let me try to explain. I believe that great service is an art not a given. And, artist pay careful attention to their craft too? So, what can we learn from them or their art? Slow down and think about your service strategy!

If you could look differently at service, what would you discover?

“Spy in the wild” teaches us that there is always some thing new to learn. Is it time to rethink how to view customers? By using ultra realistic robots scientist have been able to see things not visible with just cameras. The artist/robot specialists weave in the hair one at a time for a very realistic effect. What if you could take a fresh look at customers now and see things in a new way too? I’m not sure how you would do that but think new!

Everything’s same yet different – Don’t lose your overall service identity!

Art teaches us! Is your brand special? Is it still special now? These mannequin’s legs are all posed the same but in simple ways, they all appear different. Your customers have changed. Some want safety, some don’t. Some want new and interesting, some don’t. They all want great service. I had a washer delivered and the guys did not have masks or gloves on and did not offer to put them on. I obviously wasn’t going to turn them away but I will quietly not order from them again. Think about what you can do to reassess the entire experience from the new services, to new layouts and how to make it REALLY interesting to customers that have also changed. Those brands that maintain their previous great service identity and then make it just a little bit better will win!

Walking into the unknown! What will your Google/Yelp safety reviews say? It matters!

Art teaches us! Hanneke Beaumont’s sculpture says it all! The risk takers are fine but they don’t notice the floor markings/new rules. Others? Are at best confused and maybe even scared. What do you want your customers to say on google/yelp about safety? Beaumont’s sculptures are meant to represent timeless individuals, no certain age. Make sure that all locations are ready and factor in all needs, not just for risk taking customers.
