Dialing Down the Drama: Managing expectations
During the holiday season, most of us are all hopped up on expectations. We hope Santa (or the beneficent being of choice) will bring us something nice. We’d like the relatives to get their Norman Rockwell on and behave well during those holiday get-togethers. And, if we have spent too much on gifts, we’d like to win the lottery. All these pregnant hopes and expectations are a breeding ground for disappointment and its volatile cousins, Fury, Resentment and Drama. The key to minimizing all this drama is managing expectations.
Drama can also erupt in business situation. Customers may have preconceived notions of what a product will do or what a service should include. They might project their expectations onto your company and when you fail to deliver (from their point of view) all hell breaks loose. And when that happens, regardless of who is right, it damages your brand.
So, how do you protect your brand from undue drama?
