Beware Of Fracturing Your Brand Culture

Delta Air Lines is rated the #1 US airline, according to the 29th annual Airline Quality Rating (AQR) study conducted by Wichita State University and Embry-Riddle. So, it’s a bit surprising that a top brand would gamble with its most valuable asset: the employees that make the brand possible. As reported in The New York Times, and virally shared on social media, Delta is facing backlash for suggesting to employees that it would be more “fun” to spend their money on new video games or rounds o...

Fox upfront embraces the startup mentality

In its first upfront presentation since selling off its studio assets and basic-cable networks to the Walt Disney Co., Fox on Monday pitched itself to advertisers as a scrappy underdog that also happens to deliver some of the largest audiences on television. And while the attempt to spin the Murdoch family’s network as some sort of artisanal broadcast property sometimes seemed to fly a bit wide of the mark—it’s hard to sell a dark-horse narrative when you’re airing the next Super Bowl—Fox Entert...

The Story Behind the Star of the Longest-Running Public Service Campaign in American History

Moments of Fallacy: Your Customers Don't Leave But Are Invited To Do So

We get the language of customer retention and attrition all wrong. We say things like "customers abandon us," "they leave," or "they attrite." But in framing our brand's retention issues in this manner, we swap the subject and object of our sentences. We make the customer the subject and our brand the object, as if they've done something to us, but the reality is precisely the opposite. We are the subject--our organizations are the ones accountable for the customer experience (CX), for ensuring...
