What is service?
When it comes to service, does it mean to fix the machine or get things done as soon as possible? Or does it mean to think in other people’s shoes, solve problems for others, and meet their needs? Many times they do not mean the same.
If employees only know to get things done, but do not know that they are serving people, or even if they know, but they have no ability to perceive the real needs of the others, would it happen that their hard work be not appreciated? Will they feel tired of the job after they have been doing service work for a long time?

When you set up a standard operating procedure for employees,
Does it specify the actions, or improve the awareness of service?
Are they working to follow procedure, or solving problems for customers?
When procedure is ready, are they able to think for benefit of the customers? Or they pay even less attention to what customers care?
What would they do when no procedure would apply? Are they able to think in customer’s shoes and solve problems?
How to enhance the sense of service? How to go beyond the procedures, and cultivate the living ability of solving problems for customers?
When the frontline customer contact employees have the sense of service,
Have backoffice colleagues realized that frontline colleagues are their customers?
Do they have the awareness and ability that the frontline colleagues apply to serve external customers?
How to make the sense of service run through all links of the value chain, how to make the internal parties support frontline colleagues?
When everybody consider themselves customers, and require that others should have service awareness and abilities,
Have you ever thought about how to supportively respond to others’ services?
Whether you can make the service staff have more willingness to serve you?
Whether you can cooperate with service staff so as to make it easier for them to serve you?
How to help each other support and corporate with each other, instead of unilaterally asking for service from others?
