1001 Ways to Wow Your Customers: Volume 1
edited by Rick Sidorowicz and Darlene Pineda

1001 Ways to Wow Your Customers was created to invite and share “stories” of great customer service. “Stories” are the medium to best describe “what great performance looks like” and “feels like” and customer service stories can entertain, illuminate and inspire. We’ve moved from a space on “Blogspot” to a WordPress home at www.refresher.com and have now captured the work in this first volume as an eBook.

1001 Ways to Wow Your Customers will take you on an adventure to “get” what’s possible when customer service becomes strategic to your success. It can, as the editors and contributors know and have experienced, create a sustainable competitive advantage for you and your enterprise.  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.

Thank you for your interest and we hope you enjoy the articles and stories.  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.

The Ultimate Texas Hold'em Strategy Workbook: Train Your Brain to Win!

I confess. I love playing Texas Hold'em! Now I could try to make a case that playing Texas Hold'em is an exercise in risk management for leaders, but for me it's more about discovering and confirming a process of dealing with reality and measuring results, to learn how to win consistently at the game.

When I started playing Texas Hold'em I occasionally enjoyed the thrill of victory but suffered the agony of defeat much too often. I became so frustrated with the inconsistency of my performance that I set out to discover the real probabilities and "train my brain" to play only the hands that had the greatest chances of winning. The process I created was so successful that I documented it in an eBook to share.

The Ultimate Texas Hold'em Strategy Workbook will guide you through a process where you will learn how to more than double the probability of your success and winnings in each session of Texas Hold'em you play. That's right! More than double your chances of winning - guaranteed!
