Attitude of Gratitude: Cultivating Gratitude in ...

follow link "You don’t have to move mountains.  Simply fall in love with life.  Be a tornado of happiness, gratitude and acceptance.  You will change the world just by being a warm, kind-hearted human being."  – Anita Krizzan It's a thankless job, but somebody has to do it. Have you ever heard or expressed that phrase? If so, I apologize.  In my opinion, there should not be a thankless job.  If there is a job that is being done, and it is a "thankless" job, maybe it's a job that doesn’t need to be done.   What I mean is, in a company where there are many moving parts, many pieces of a project pu

Sales Incentive Programs: The Critical Components

buy accutane without a prescription Your sales incentive program treads a very thin line. On one hand, it needs to motivate your team members to achieve new goals. On the other hand, it needs to not alienate other team members who maybe have more challenging territories or aren’t as experienced as the reps who frequently reach individual and team goals. So, what do you look for in an incentive program? Mark Houck is Director of New Business Development at Xceleration, and he believes there is no bigger, more important element of a successful sales program than a quality sales incentive platform. “There is an opportunity

Earning Trust in the Office

go to site Trust is built with consistency. -Lincoln Chafee   Earning trust in the office place, whether you are a member of the rank and file or a manager, takes time and effort. It’s a combination of what you do, what you say, and how you choose to conduct yourself that dictates if – and how quickly – you will earn the trust of your co-workers. It is entirely possible you will spend more time with this group of people than with any other person in your life right now, including a spouse or significant other, so trust and success travel hand-in-hand. Trust is important because you ha

How to Get Your Employees to Do Things That Are N...

Do you offer rewards to your employees for doing good work?  If yes, great! Do you reward your employees for excelling at or accomplishing a certain task? If so, great. Do you reward your employees for any other behaviors or doing things they may not be thrilled about? If no, you’re not alone. . . we find that there is a misconception that rewards and incentives can and should only be applied to doing good work, meeting a certain goal, or excelling at a specific task. That line of thinking is limiting both in terms of the effects that incentives and rewards can have on employee engage

Choosing the Right Customer Loyalty Program Provider

Now that you have determined what you need in a customer loyalty program (and if you haven’t, we have a previous blog that can help – find it here) you will likely want to choose a provider to help you with the final design, implementation, and management of the program.  There are several things to consider, based on what you know about your audience, budget, and business objectives.  The perfect customer loyalty program provider should be able to answer your questions, meet your needs, and manage any hurdles that present themselves along the way from concept to implementation and beyond.

Choosing the Right Customer Loyalty Program

It’s a big decision, choosing the right customer loyalty program. On one hand, you want a program that works for you - that delivers the data you need about your core clientele and meets your business objectives.  On the other hand, it must retain the customers you have and attract the ones you want.  That’s a massive ask for any element of your business, let alone one that you likely have to hire out through an RFP to acquire. Below is a short list of things you and your team will want to consider before you start the process of looking for a customer loyalty program partner. What Are Y

The Eyes Don’t Lie; Rewards and Biometrics

The debate is as old as the concept of rewards itself- which is more effective: cash, or material things and experiences? There are solid arguments on both sides but now definitive scientific evidence, in the form of biometrics, puts the argument to rest. A 2016 study commissioned by the Incentive Research Foundation (for a deep dive into the study, you can find it here) asked which type of reward (cash or material things/experiences) people unconsciously reacted to most strongly. You read that correctly.  It measured their unconscious reactions. Even though people may outwardly say they

Predictive Analytics- Seeing Your Customer’s Future

Whether you are a believer in fortune-telling, or psychic readings, we’ve all had our future predicted – possibly as recently as today – through predictive analytics. Think about the last time you ordered an item online. Were you presented with a list of items other customers were interested in when they purchased the same thing you just bought? That’s predictive analytics - taking data that exists from previous events and using it to determine what might happen next- and it’s a critically valuable business tool. Using what you know about your customers and comparing it to previous behavior

Trending: Travel Incentive Experiences (Guest Blog)

Recently, someone shared with me their observation that my approach to the process of travel planning is more like that of an artist, working on my next creation. The comparison resonated with me on a deep level, prompting me to look up the definition of ART and this is what I found: art (ärt/) noun the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power. I thought this definition fully captured the essence and heartbeat of how I, along with the travel design team at Xceleration, approach e

Alleviating the Risk of Travel Incentives

Risk.  It’s ok to admit you think about it a lot. In the business world, we seldom make a decision without first examining two things: What is the ROI? What are the Risks? We’ve previously discussed the ROI of offering travel as a sales incentive here, and here, and we wouldn’t be doing our jobs if we didn’t discuss the risk and how to best alleviate it. The fact is, yes, there is some risk involved in offering travel as a reward.  We won’t go into all the things that can happen while your rock star employees are seeing the sights and enjoying their trip on your dime.  Admittedl
