1001 Ways to Wow Your Customers
This 162 page eBook will take you on an adventure to “get” what’s possible when customer service becomes strategic to your success. Aside from simply being the “right thing to do” in the sense that being “of service” is a virtue and reward in itself, “wowing” your customers – creating positive, memorable and emotional experiences for your customers – will create superior returns on all financial performance dimensions. Loyal, raving fans and advocates of your product (service, offering) are your most profitable customers today. Having more of them will serve you well. We hope you will be inspired to engage your people to create your unique 1001 ways to wow your customers and achieve your breakthrough in performance. You can read the introduction and table of contents here - .

Pilot Performance
Pilot Performance was originally published as a series of articles on creative leadership in The CEO Refresher and is now available as an eBook in pdf format. This 37 page collection of articles explores a metaphor for business leadership based on techniques in aviation and the performance of pilots. The metaphor of executing with skill and precision in “turbulence” seems particularly relevant within the challenging environment we face in business and organizations today.
