Customer service tips from The Fred Factor ~ How Passion in Your Work and Life Can Turn the Ordinary into the Extraordinary by Mark Sanborn

Motivational speaker Mark Sanborn recounts the true story of Fred, the mail carrier who passionately loves his job and who genuinely cares about the people he serves.  Because of that, he is constantly going the extra mile handling the mail – and sometimes watching over the houses – of the people on his route, treating everyone he meets as a friend.  Where others might see delivering mail as monotonous drudgery, Fred sees an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those he serves.


It doesn’t matter how large or even how ineffective an organization is.  An individual can still make a difference.  You can make a difference.  A mediocre employer can hinder exceptional performance, choose to ignore it, and not adequately recognize or encourage it.  Or an excellent employer can train employees to achieve exceptional performance and then reward it.  Ultimately though, only the employee can choose to do his or her job in an extraordinary way, regardless of the circumstances.

Think about it.  Do you add to or take away from the experience of your customers and colleagues?  Do you move your organization closer to or further from its goals?  Do you perform your work in an ordinary way, or do you execute it superbly?  Do you lighten someone’s burden or add to it?  Do you lift someone up or put someone down?

Nobody can prevent you from choosing to be exceptional.  At the end of the day, the only question that matters is, what kind of difference did you make?

Fred Smith, the distinguished author and business leader, has noted from his years of leadership experience that “most people have a passion for significance.”
