Empathize with Your Customers to Keep Them Coming Back

United around the tableTake a walk in your customer’s shoes with a new business strategy. The art of empathy is a contemporary and growing idea among business professionals in 2013. Leaders are beginning to focus their aim away from the customer’s wallet, and instead are striving to understand the world from the customer’s perspective. Wired Magazine states that empathy is a “revolutionary force for change” as a “future-proof” business strategy in 2013. You can personally discover this innovative approach with Jeri Meola’s seminar, “If Your Don’t Take Care of Your Customer, Someone Else Will.”
