Sometimes the mistake WIll indeed cost to customers. The one thing I know about every mistake is that you will gain and education if you take the time to find treasure the teachable moment.
I once heard the story about the hospital who hired an MRI technician. for those who are unfamiliar with MRIS one a day key features of that is that a use magnets to create images. Because magnets are so powerful they cannot allow anything metal in the room. this new employee made an error and some metal got caught in machine and destroyed it. Has he went to the boss to confess his error and assumably turn in his name badge and clean out his office because he knew that he was guaranteed have been fired for cause in the hospital well over $1000000 in machinery. the boss refused his resignation. He asked,” I’ve already invested a million dollars into educating you on procedures, why would I let you quit now?” there is an amazing truth here. Mistakes can indeed be extremely costly, but they can be extremely educational so we was never dismiss or for that the education that is gained to us and our employees by making them. As long as we are committed to only allowing mistake Happened One Time.
What are some of the mistakes that you have experienced wow performing your plumbing marketing?
