LITK Recap: What to Expect & Accept

Thursday, 30 April, 2020

On April 30, the Greater Memphis Chamber Small Business Council hosted Lunch In The Know Webinar “What to Expect & Accept” featuring Dr. Reginald Coopwood – President & CEO Regional One Health.

Host Brian Stephens opened the webinar with a welcome and thanking our partners, Independent Bank and Waddell Associates who provided zoom hosting.

During the session, Dr. Coopwood shared his 10 year journey on how he was able to transform the customer service of Regional One Health. He gave personal examples of some customer service related experiences at different businesses around Memphis.

Here are key takeaways from the webinar when it comes to customer service:

  1. Set high standards, high expectations and hold your team accountable.

  2. Front line people are extremely vital to the customer service experience and identity of the business.

  3. Hold your leaders accountable

  4. Learn from others that are doing it right or get the lessons from those that have done it wrong.

  5. The first time you think of letting go of an employee, do it then. “No employee is better than a bad employee”

  6. Leaders/Employers have to learn how to make tough decisions.
