What Others Are Saying
Mr. Benson is excellent in understanding the purpose of his consulting. His skill in causing the client to really concentrate on the goal of the consulting arrangement helps to provide the client a valuable return on the investment of time and money. He doesn't provide the client with a cookie cutter approach to what he thinks but through his ability to engage the client and their staff into helping identify the solutions that are best for the client. He provides direction at the end of his consulting arrangement to ensure that the time spent in the consulting arrangement will produce results.
As the Chairman of the Board of North Midtown CDC, our organization along with Good Samaritian-Midtown engaged Rob Benson to assist us in reaching a decision on merging our two organizations. Political, personal, program and political issues had to be addressed. We were very pleased with the results achieved in our consulting arrangement and have proceeded with our decision to finalize the merger between our two 501c3 organizations and and would confidently recommend Rob Benson as someone who is very talented in facilitating organizational change.

World Class Service
We teach your people the tools needed to Lead, Manage and Skillfully Operate their part of the business.
World class service is memorable service, service that makes a lasting impression. We all have received it. We all remember it. We all want it. If we run a business, we all want to give it. Yet, world class service is a rare commodity. The reason is that few people really understand it.
When we think of service, our immediate thought is to think of the external customer. Yet all service (be it product or service) is driven and controlled by the service an organization provides to its internal contacts. The level of service or the quality of product the outside customer receives never, over the long haul, exceeds the lowest level of service given to internal contacts. (Wait, read that again ... so what should we be focusing on? Typical customer service training?)
The World Class Service intervention looks at service in a way that allows us to see what world class service is, why it is essential to successful business and, most important, how we can provide it ourselves and help others provide it. The World Class Service intervention orients the entire organization toward providing memorable service. If people in the organization want to provide world class service to the outside customer, world class service must first be provided to all internal contacts. The intervention involves all levels of the organization to create the organizational mind set which ultimately will result in world class service.
The World Class Service intervention is more than a workshop. It is a series of carefully planned events which create a world class mind set at all levels of the organization. Our mind set drives our behavior; if we are going to provide world class service, then we must have a world class service mind set.
Creating a mind set involves thinking, talking, and doing. A person must first think about world class service on a conceptual level. Then there are facilitated discussions about the specifics of world class service as they relate to each team and department within the organization. Next, people in the organization provide world class service to their internal contacts from the top down. All levels of the organization are involved in the process, and management focuses on aligning the performance systems to support world class service. The result is a world class mind set which results in naturally providing world class service to the customer.
In a competitive environment, one of the few ways an organization can differentiate itself is to provide memorable product or service. Memorable product or service is the basis of many personal endorsements; it is memorable product or service that keeps the customer coming back.
Because providing world class service requires a mind set change, the time it takes varies from organization to organization. Once the world class service mind set is achieved, however, the transition to world class service is permanent.
