Mystery Shopper Feedback

Just got off a phone call with a guy wanting to sell me some services. I thought I would do his colleague the favour of letting them know where they went wrong. Of course, in doing so I reminded myself of some things I could be doing better too. Funny how it works like that. You make an effort to teach someone something and you learn from it yourself.

G'day Russell,

You will undoubtedly hear that things did not go as you would have desired on the phone call.You might easily dismiss it as some old curmudgeon taking offense at the slightest thing.Which I am perfectly willing for you to do and you might be right.:-)

But I have been in sales for over 30 years so there might be something here worth reading.

I recall over 30 years ago reading how a top executive, (I think it was Reg Ansett, a guy who ran an airline here is Australia) said he could newly meet someone and sum them up in 30 seconds of conversation.

In my youthful ignorance at the time it was completely outside my reality. Talking to many thousands of people since and having done some very interesting courses that taught me a lot about people, I find myself a lot closer to being able to do that than I was 40 years ago. Let me share with you the indicators from the conversation I had with your colleague.

There's an old line, "Most people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."

If you are in the top 1% of people who like to learn from their mistakes, allow me to offer some free coaching.Call it a "mystery shopper" feedback.

1. You said you would talk to me but then you got someone else to talk to me. First broken agreement. Acts as an invalidation - "I'm not important enough for him to talk to." Which may be a good call on your part. :-) WHENEVER you hand over a person to another team member it should always be done with a good explanation and plenty of notice. NEVER no notice and no explanation.

2. The person who spoke with me had done insufficient homework to satisfy me he was interested enough in me and my business to understand my assets with which he would be working. This demonstrated to me a lack of interest and lack of genuine desire to truly understand me and my business and to be of service. The more homework you do on a person and their business, the more chance of success you have.

3. When he could not bring up my Facebook Healthelicious site I asked him to spell what he had entered. It took two repeats of my question and me actually having to physically check for myself that what I was asking him to do would work before he told me the incorrect spelling he was using. This demonstrated a lack of interest and courtesy in getting right the name of the prospect's firm and, what's even worse, an inability to follow instructions or duplicate commands. Bad enough having to deal with those inabilities face-to-face but the last thing you want to have when working remotely with someone.

And this is a sales guy! Where you want to be creating the best impression to win the business!

As a result of the above feedback I hope you review and refine your processes and coach your colleague. I know as a business owner that this sort of feedback is worth gold. But only if you use it!

Wilderness Corridors: Agenda 21 Under A New Name
Rural Relocation

When it comes to people the government fears the most, those who live in rural areas must be somewhere near the top of the list. Not that there’s anything wrong with this particular group of people. It’s just that they’re a demographic that the government often struggles to contend with.

What do We Do When Antibiotics No Longer Work?

Penicillin changed everything. Infections that had previously killed were suddenly quickly curable. Yet as Maryn McKenna shares in this sobering talk, we've squandered the advantages afforded us by that and later antibiotics. Drug-resistant bacteria mean we're entering a post-antibiotic world — and it won't be pretty. There are, however, things we can do ... if we start right now.

Global Warming Continues To Pummel Polar Ice Caps By Not Causing Them To Melt
Polar Ice

As I've written previously, we’ve experienced the calmest Hurricane season in 30 years, the quietest tornado season in 60 years; the creation of 19,000 Manhattan islands worth of sea ice, and (again) the Arctic Ice Cap has grown by 533,000 square miles. In 2007, the BBC warned the cap could vanish by 2013. Oh, and we’re at the most industrialized point in human history–and air quality couldn’t be better, according to the EPA.

Economics in One Lesson

Henry Hazlitt wrote this book following his stint at the New York Times as an editorialist. His hope was to reduce the whole teaching of economics to a few principles and explain them in ways that people would never forget. It worked. He relied on some stories by Bastiat and his own impeccable capacity for logical thinking and crystal-clear prose.

The Rule of Law, for 800 Years

TThis year marks the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, on which the constitutional liberties and the Rule of Law of England were founded. It was signed by a beleaguered King John on 15 June 1215 with his disgruntled noblemen. Dan Jones’ Magna Carta shows why it was granted, repudiated by the king, and subsequently reinstated, and became the founding document in the history of liberty of the English-speaking people.

Climate Change Scientists Caught Fiddling Global Warming Data

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists have been discovered fiddling with global warming data.

The scientists attempted to “adjust” temperature records in order to erase an unexplained 15-year pause in global warming, which brings into question the whole man-made global warming theory. They did this by doubling the warming trend in the 1990’s, adjusting the pre-hiatus temperatures downwards and inflating recent temperatures.

Shouldn't YOU be suspicious of vaccinations too?


Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
