Liz Fosslien: Work With Your Emotions
Play • 41 min

Why do we lose motivation in our jobs? How can we create a space of belonging and inclusion? What are the best ways to give and receive feedback?

Liz Fosslien answers all of these questions, and more, in this thoughtful and pertinent interview. As she reveals, emotions in the workplace are not only acceptable—they can actually be incredibly useful in decision making, making connections, and doing great creative work.

This interview is truly eye-opening in establishing how we can unite who we are with what we do, creating a positive working environment for ourselves and those that we work with.

The Intuitive Customer - Improve Your Customer Experience To Gain Growth
The Intuitive Customer - Improve Your Customer Experience To Gain Growth
Beyond Philosophy LLC
“World Experience Organization” Created Will Help Us All Be Better in 2021
No matter what business you are in, the best way to connect with your customers is through the experience you provide them. However, connecting requires knowing what customers want, and today, that isn’t the same as it was 20 years ago. The Experience Economy dictates that people value experiences over material things these days.  In addition to knowing what customers want, wouldn’t it also be great to know what works in Customer Experience Management? Wouldn’t it be even better to know what doesn’t work before you waste your time and energy (and budget) trying it yourself? These ideas are the concept behind Customer Experience expert James Wallman, founder of the World Experience Organization (WXO). The WXO is a Customer Experience organization that encourages worldwide collaboration and debate on what is—and what isn’t—critical to Customer Experiences.    Key Ideas to Improve your Customer Experience   Among other things, Wallman says the bid idea behind the WXO is to separate the useful CX concepts from the ones that are merely hot air. He hopes that the WXO will further legitimize the Experience Economic and CX movement, allow all the members to learn from each other, and see new ways to achieve customer engagement. Here are some highlights from our discussion.  * 03:28 Wallman explains the idea behind founding the WXO and why he did it.  * 05:08 Wallman describes the Experience Economy and how the WXO will help move it forward. * 11:55 Wallman talks about how not having an organized and defined effort can delegitimize the CX movement.  * 18:06 Wallman discusses the reasons behind choosing CX pioneers to establish the WXO. * 21:03 Colin explains how the human being is always at the center of the experience, no matter what type of experience it is. * 23:49 Wallman shares his idea that we are all on a “Hero’s Journey” and how those should look in a journey map.  * 30:50 We give the information on how what to do if you are interested in joining the WXO.  Please tell us how we are doing! Complete this short survey.  Customer Experience Information & Resources LinkedIn recognizes Colin Shaw as one of the 'World's Top 150 Business Influencers.'
