Why Your Marine Dealership Needs Empathy - The Empathy Series (Part 1)

Empathy is the ability to understand the point of view and feelings of another — to walk the proverbial mile in someone else’s shoes. Empathy is one of those attributes that gets a lot of “buzz” but remains an abstract concept when translating to the business world. Consider how many interactions you’ve personally experienced as a customer where you felt like the employee really connected with you, are those experiences the exception or the rule?

Attributes of Employees Who Delight Callers

At the core of every employee interaction over the phone is the caller’s desire for a great experience. Those experiences are driven by the actions, behaviors, and skill sets of employees on the other side of the phone.

Anyone who is making and taking phone calls at your dealership should be prepared to handle those calls in a manner that results in a great experience for the caller.
