Customer Service and Serotonin

Did you know that every time you perform a kind or considerate act, it automatically strengthens your immune system? It also stimulates production of serotonin in the brain. And the more serotonin you have, the better you feel. So, being nice to others is good for you, and it feels good? This sounds like a bit of a win-win to me. Yet it doesn’t just stop there.

Equally exciting, is that the person receiving the kindness is going through the exact same thing. You are both experiencing increased happiness and stronger immune systems. What is also fascinating about this, is that people who witness the kindness, will also experience the same benefits of increased health and happiness. Talk about the ripple effect, I’m smiling just thinking about it.

How can you tap into these amazing benefits? You can do it every day at work by delivering brilliant customer service. It’s brilliant because you light up your life and the lives of others as a result. It also happens to be brilliant for business. Feeling good has a direct impact on your productivity. So, we’re happier, healthier, and more productive.

The art of communicating brilliant customer service is even more powerful when it comes to problems. This is good. Think about it, if you don’t have problems to fix – you don’t have a business. Business is all about solving problems for people and brilliant customer service is about doing it well so you, and your business prospers.

Have a sincere intent to be of service, pleasant, considerate, and understand how to communicate that from the start. There are some powerful foundational things to know when it comes to ensuring customer service success from first impressions, to building rapport, and problem solving. It’s enlightening, empowering, and according to research, it’s good for you.

So go out there and be brilliant. And in doing so, (to take the words from Spock, of the star ship Enterprise) you will ‘live long and prosper’.
