Oh her? She’s new: A lesson in attitude and performance
How can Sweet Dee improve? She can remember these points:
Attitude drives performance: How she describes her job is just as important as the tasks she performs.
- Take off the blinders: The plane probably really isn’t going to crash, so she should keep in mind that although safety is important, most of her time deals with customer service.
- Perception is everything: Although she might not believe her job is in customer service she needs to let the passengers think that. If she was perceived as being polite then people would more willingly listen to her and act accordingly.
