Focus on the 90% for Service Providers
Have you ever been served by someone who did not seem to be enjoying what they were doing? Or by someone who was not a “people person”? Have you ever been served by a person who clearly should not be working at that job anymore? If you do not enjoy what you do, it is very difficult to serve with a positive focus. Building great service starts with your employees. Before they can provide FOCUSed service, they need to examine their attitude towards their job and serving clients all day. Darci discusses some tried and true ways to connect with the client. The client isn’t always right, sometimes they are rude. It’s important to have empathy but to be able to put the interaction into perspective so it doesn’t affect every other client we work with that day. Darci’s speaks from experience. By the time she was 24 years old, she was an entrepreneur, owning a tuxedo rental store, a bridal show and, as she transformed into a motivational speaker. From humble beginnings in her dad’s Volkswagen garage, waiting on tables and working retail; then taking a company from bankruptcy to an award‐winning business! She understands what focused service is all about.

  • t was evident from the first time our event organizing committee spoke with Darci that her message and her presence would add something special to our meeting... She is sincere, articulate, and uses humour as a velvet glove to drive her powerful message home. We are already looking for reasons to bring Darci back to speak!

  • The response to Darci's presentation at our staff meeting was extremely positive and although I am not surprised, I am a bit awestruck by the level of emotion expressed in the event evaluations and the deep value people took away from her message. Without a doubt, Darci is motivational - she is also a no nonsense Reality-Check Task Master!

  • Darci Lang's message was warmly accepted and heard by our group. In the days and weeks since then, I notice that people still have their magnifying glass at their desks, and I often hear a reminder to focus on the 90%..........both of these proof that the message was important enough to remember and ‘own', and delivered expertly! I encourage other work groups or really, any group, to take the opportunity to listen and learn from Darci!
