I wanted to share a great customer service story from customer service speaker Shep Hyken. Shep’s story of his encounter with a Texas taxi driver is a classic and demonstrates how any person or organization can deliver an incredible customer experience by focusing on the customer and by breaking through the boundaries of their industry.
I simply love this story! And so much so that every time I travel I keep my eyes open for a taxi driver who has potential — who is trying to be better but just hasn’t put the pieces together yet — so I can share Shep’s video with them. I haven’t run into the right person yet, but I am hopeful that one day it will.
Enjoy the video, and please feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section
