October 18, 2016 3:19am
Florida, USA – October 18, 2016 – Kennedy Training Network Inc., USA, announced the publication of a new book by KTN President Douglas Martin Kennedy. ”So You REALLY Like Working With People?”: Five Principles For Hospitality Excellence is a fun and fast moving book that will inspire both frontline colleagues and top-level hospitality leaders.
His new book goes beyond offering traditional hospitality concepts such as “telephone skills,” “using customer names,” and “techniques for handling complaints,” all of which have been covered again and again by others. Instead, readers explore the true heart of hospitality, because that’s where it all starts.
This book draws on the many hospitality lessons Doug learned from personally training more than 20,000 managers and frontline staff of hotels, resorts and lodging companies of all types throughout North America and worldwide since 1989, most often in groups of 5 to 25 at a time. Many of the stories shared herein originate from the hospitality superstars he has met in doing so. Doug’s content also comes from his 19 years working as a frontline customer service employee, including eight years in the hotel business and 11 years working his parents’ small business from age 9.
By reading his “Five Principles for Hospitality Excellence,” readers will not only learn how to deliver service experiences that foster customer loyalty and “word of click” social media advertising, but they will also learn how to have a lot more fun along the way!
