Unite the C-Suite on Establishing a Chief Customer Officer (CCO) Role

The role of the Chief Customer Officer is to work with leaders to embed the five competencies to improve customers’ lives. How you introduce a Chief Customer Officer into your business sets the course for its success and for your customer experience transformation. I help clients and recruiters determine if the role is right for them, frame the role and fill the role with the right person with this service.

Understanding and Committing to “Customer Experience”

There are so many interpretations leaders have about what customer experience is, and how to do the work. This engagement aligns and unites your organization, clarifies the work and enables them to commit to a customer experience commitment, completely informed of the work ahead and their required involvement. We will cover:

  • The 5-competency framework to build your customer-driven growth engine.
  • What customer experience transformation requires of leaders.
  • Workshop: Auditing the current state of your customer experience.
  • Workshop: Reality Check Audit of your current state performance in the 5 competencies.
  • Deciding on the best path ahead for your company.

Leadership and Culture to Earn the Right to Customer-Driven Growth

This is a deep dive into Customer Leadership Competency 5: One-Company Accountability, Leadership & Accountability. In this session, leaders begin building a framework for customer-driven decision-making throughout your company. This begins with establishing your “Clarity of Purpose” for the business: why the company exists, and how it operates to improve customers’ lives. Guided by the stages of your customer journey to add operational reality and granularity, leaders then work out by stage, a first draft of your “code of conduct”: what you must always do for customers and employees by stage, and what you will never do by stage of the customer journey. Pre-work includes the culture audit of leadership behaviors from “I Love You More than My Dog: Five Decisions that Drive Extreme Customer Loyalty in Good Times and Bad.”

  • Pre-work: Culture Audit of leadership behaviors, with results presented to leaders.
  • Keynote: The five decisions made by beloved and prosperous companies.
  • Workshop: Customer Experience Clarity of Purpose and Code of Conduct.
  • Takeaway Action: Leadership “recipe cards” to prompt early & united C-Suite actions.
  • Takeaway Action: Start a “Kill a Stupid Rule” movement to honor customers & employees.
