Making Time to Lead
Putting the Customer First
When you are next sitting down with your team, it is worth exploring the question of whether you you’re your organisation truly puts your customers first. I know for BRS this is a work in progress as we continue to examine all areas of our business and look to ensure we think about the customer first. It requires discipline, questioning of our activities around whether they are what our customer wants and a challenge to continue to understand our industries and customers better so that we can continue to add more value to them in what we do.
A final point to reflect on is also understanding who the true customer is. Often for your client, they don’t want you to focus on them but rather their customers and what they need. A good example of this is when you look at a transport government agency and who their customers area. They may include drivers, politicians, cyclists, stakeholders and other government agencies. Do you know them and their wants and fears? Do you understand what impact a project may have on these customers and what we may need to do to address their concerns, wants and needs? This knowledge is critical to adding value to your clients in a way that truly puts you in their shoes. It is a challenge but one that will lead to increased opportunities to add value to your clients and their customers.
