Stephanie’s key takeaways
*takeaway is what British people call take out, but that’s not applicable here
- I advise agents to speak up more. Sometimes you do have to be the loudest voice in the room. And grab every opportunity that you see – ask people if they want help. Take the bull by the horns and just drive your own career a little bit!
- Companies need to look more at who their customers are. What type of different services do they want? You hopefully have more than one persona. Look at what their service expectations are, not into what makes your job easier.
