We recommend clients implement the Culture method block last.

From our experience, we’ve found that asking management and employees to change their behavior because it will, theoretically, improve customer satisfaction, loyalty and conversion is a big ASK.   It takes a lot more than logic to implant permanent behavior change.

We’ve learned that as companies go through the Sellers’ Compass methodology, employees discover on their own terms how aligning to customer experiences not only drives growth but gives them greater role clarity, takes the guesswork out of decision-making and introduces more fun and meaning into their jobs.
