product description

At 211º, water is hot. At 212º, it boils. And with boiling water comes steam. And steam can power a locomotive. The one extra degree makes the difference. This simple analogy reflects the ultimate definition of excellence. The one extra degree of effort, in business and life, can separate the good from the great.

In 212º Service, Mac Anderson covers the ten rules for creating a top notch service culture that any type and any size business can employ to take their service culture to the extra degree. Written with real life examples, this book will have your team excited and coming up with their own ideas to make your service culture the best it can be. This is a great way to kick off your meeting or new hire training followed by each employee reading and discussing this engaging book.

    It was the perfect way to end our sales meeting. We showed the 212̴1/4 Service movie, and gave everyone a copy of the book.

      212 Degrees
      Such a real reminder about how just that "additional extra effort" can make the difference, can produce the pay-off, in accomplishment: 1 more sales call late in the day // 1 more phone call to either a customer, or family member //staying 1 more minute to hear someone's story to completion // 1 more handwritten letter // 1 more compliment(added to the 3 other sincere ones we're supposed to issue - EVERY day, right?) - you get the picture. All I have to do is begin counting to myself: "two-hundred & nine, two-hundred & ten, two-hundred & eleven..." and it sets my mind in a creative mode looking for that "one more degree" of SOMETHING, now. Wonderful stuff. Thank you for the resource.
