Smile & Move® is a fresh and easily embraceable message that's helped thousands of people and organizations inspire and encourage people at all levels to be more positive and service-oriented in their customer and work relationships.
It's perfect for customer service training. (And isn't customer service a part of almost everyone's work?)
It's simple enough to kick-off or support an upcoming meeting, project, or event and deep enough to stand on its own as a theme or team building message. You might even find it helpful as an on-boarding tool or first-read for new hires (to set expectations for wonderful service levels and accountability – "In everything we do, we Smile & Move. We're Smovers here.").
You might start by handing out the bestselling book (a quick 20-minute read which means people will really read it) and then discuss it as a group. Then keep the message alive by handing out and/or posting the fun reinforcement items (banners, posters, reminder cards, mugs, t-shirts, wristbands, etc.). You can even use the items as Smile & Move awards to recognize the true 'Smovers' in your organization. If you'd like to go deeper with it (and create a 'Smovement' of your own), maybe one of our meeting packages would be the best fit for you. These include the inspiring video and/or a PowerPoint® formatted presentation with a Leader's Guide to help you deliver and discuss the material.
