“Hi Kev, it’s Tim here…your blokes just dropped off a couch at my place. I just want to let you know that they were absolute professionals in every aspect. They did a great job.”
“Ah….OK.” Followed by an awkward silence…almost as if he was waiting for the “But…”
But there was no “but”…so I awkwardly finished the call by asking him to pass this feedback on to his boys and that I’d given them the cheque so I’m sure he’d have it shortly.
This is the blow by blow dialogue of a phone call I had today. I love giving feedback. Probably because I love receiving it. Positive or constructive.
Do you ever find it difficult accepting a simple compliment from a client? I hope not. But if you do, don’t wait for the “But…”
….just look the person in the eyes, smile and say “Thanks.”
More importantly, who are you going to ring right this minute and thank?
