Healthcare Employees Can Move Up to Better Jobs, Says Customer Service Expert John Tschohl

MINNEAPOLIS, July 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — When we go to the hospital or clinic, the same people greet us and service us most of the time. While these people almost seem like extended family members, have you ever wondered why they never move up in their careers?

According John Tschohl, whom Time Magazine called the "Customer Service Guru"  this is not uncommon.

"Every healthcare CEO is looking for indispensable and extraordinary employees. The problem is that employees settle. They possess self-imposed ceilings. They do not believe in themselves and often compare themselves to others," said Tschohl, a best-selling author whose newest book "Moving Up" shows employees easy steps to build their careers.

"Indispensable employees don't wait around for instruction or direction. They figure out what needs to be done and they take action. They create order out of chaos, they can generate ideas, they can innovate on the fly, and they can connect the dots. They create value for their organization," said Tschohl, a customer service speaker who delivers training programs to health care organizations and hospitals in the U.S., Russia, Latin America, Africa and Asia.

Tschohl, a customer service strategist, also says that the reason many people don't move up is because of self-imposed limitations.

"You have to decide to dive into your passion. Expecting success is far more constructive than a continual fear of failure. Self-confidence is power," said Tschohl who presents keynote speeches at conventions on how to create a service culture for hospitals and health care organizations.

"If you want to move up you have to be exceptional and do what successful people do. Here are four cornerstones of success," said Tschohl, a customer service expert, says in the healthcare employee training book "Moving Up:"

  • Believe you can do anything – If you want different results in your life or your work, all you have to do is change your mind.
  • Be dedicated – Dedication is non-negotiable. If you are not dedicated to what you are doing, you will lose sight of your goal.
  • Stay Focused – A focal point is simply a center of focus that someone aims for. All successful people have specific core centers called goals that they aim for. In order to be successful, they must remain focused on that goal
  • Skilled – In order to be successful, you must be skilled. You must strive to learn new skills so that you will be efficient and effective at work. Planning, communication, creativity, and productivity, are skills common to all successful people.
