This is the One Thing to Improve Your Customer Experience in 2021
We recently spoke to Customer Experience experts who shared an interesting insight. They all say they wish people understood that there was no one thing to do, no silver-bullet-solution for Customer Experience. We couldn’t agree more. We believe that the best way to improve Customer Experiences is to do a lot of little things that add up to significant improvements. In other words, there is no one thing, but many things that you should do to improve your Customer Experience in 2021.  One of the contributing factors to this mindset is the number of stories we hear in business books, blog posts, white papers, and TED talks that describe how organizations change this one small thing and revenue increases by 50 percent. While that makes an interesting story, it isn’t the typical result of making a small change. Perhaps why they are so engaging; because results like that are so hard to come by. Unfortunately, they often create unrealistic expectations. Upon encountering that mindset with my clients, I find myself quoting Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who, upon election, said to his cabinet, “I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat.” Part of the reason this situation is reality is that Behavioral Science is complicated. Many factors affect how it works and what it does to customer behavior. Moreover, outside factors change how the concepts work with decision-making, and these factors are often out of your control. Key Ideas to Improve your Customer Experience In this episode, we discuss the problem with seeking a silver-bullet solution for your Customer Experience problems, where this problem originates, and how you can avoid making that mistake in 2021.   Here are some highlights of the discussion: * 03:12 Ryan shares how people’s misconceptions about what science is contribute to the problem.   * 07:35 Colin shares a story about another contributing factor to the mindset. * 12:08 Ryan introduces the ideas about boundaries to science using Newtonian Gravity as an example. * 17:31 Colin compares the idea of boundaries to how you segment customer groups. * 23:06 Colin shares his recommended actions with two essential things to do in 2021. * 24:44 Ryan explains the difficulty with avoiding CX Management theories and how you can manage it to a successful outcome.

Inside the Mind of Glenn Beck, You Find…Walt Disney and Orson Welles?
Contact: Original: “When I turned 30, I knew my life was at a crossroads. It was either over, or I was going to restart.” – Glenn Beck [9:10] The goal of my blog and podcast is to push you outside of your comfort zone and force you to question assumptions. This is why I invite divergent thinkers and world-class performers who often disagree. I might interview Tony Robbins and then Matt Mullenweg. Or I might have a long chat with Sam Harris, PhD, and later invite a seemingly opposite guest like… Glenn Beck. This interview is a wild ride, and it happened — oddly enough — thanks to a late-night sauna session. I was catching up with an old friend, who is mixed-race, a Brown University grad, and liberal in almost every sense of the word. I casually asked him, “If you could pick one person to be on the podcast, who would it be?” “Glenn Beck,” he answered without a moment’s hesitation. “His story is FASCINATING.” He described how Glenn hit rock bottom and restarted his life in his 30’s, well past the point most people think it possible. Fast forward to 2014, Forbes named him to their annual Celebrity 100 Power List and pegged his earnings at $90 million for that year. This placed him ahead of people like Mark Burnett, Jimmy Fallon, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Will Smith. Glenn’s platforms — including radio, tv, digital (, publishing, etc. — get somewhere between 30 and 50 million unique visitors per month. This interview is neither a “gotcha” interview nor a softball interview. I ask some tough questions (e.g. “If you were reborn as a disabled gay woman in a poor family, what political system would you want in place?”), but my primary goal is to pull out routines, habits, books, etc. that you can use. This show is about actionable insight, not argument for argument’s sake. First and foremost, this is a story of entrepreneurship, and whether you love Glenn, hate Glenn, or have never heard his name, there is a lot to learn from him.
