Most of us remember the movie ‘What Women Want,’ starring Mel Gibson. Nick a chauvinistic sales executive miraculously gains the ability to hear women’s thoughts.
He uses this insight to tailor the way he interacts with women, and to help his relationship with his teenage daughter. But it has a single flaw – he is using deception to get what he wants, his conscience suffering as a consequence.
Traditional methods in business have used the deception tactic for centuries, employing trickery and psychology to manipulate the client to get what they wanted.
In todays business world this methodology is fast becoming a forgotten trend, people are no longer fooled by smoke and mirrors, and rightly so.
Customer Experience (CX) is no longer a niche offering delivered by the enlightened few. It is now widely accepted as an expectation. TechPath has been aware of this since its inception all those years ago when CEO Troy Adams was a young budding entrepreneur. He realised there was a business opportunity in the ICT industry to deliver an exceptional level of customer experience. TechPath have since modelled the entire business around this, and you only need to look at Troy’s transparent office to see an example – refer image at the top of this article!
Mel Gibson’s character missed a simple solution to all his problems, listening and genuinely caring, and in the end came to this realisation, at a cost, when he lost his newly gained ability.
