The UP! Your Service Architecture
The UP! Your Service architecture for building a service culture includes three key components:
1. Service Leadership
Effective leadership is essential to succeed in building a service culture. UP! Your Service engages and guides your leadership team members to ensure:
- A shared service vision that drives all culture building activities.
- Clarity on results, priorities and measures of success.
- Active involvement and support from middle managers.
- Inspire employees to act on business objectives
- Empowerment and enablement at all levels.
Service education – with new understanding, new ideas and new actions – is the foundation of a superior service culture. Service education across the organization leads to:
- A common service language and shared understanding of fundamental service principles.
- Better teamwork and collaboration with everyone seeing the
world from the customer’s point of view.
- Focused action on business objectives by motivated employees
- A stronger service mindset with genuine belief and sincere motivation to create value for customers and colleagues.
- New ideas and practical actions across all roles and functions. Everyone can immediately apply what they learn to improve internal and external service.
3. The 12 Building Blocks
