ABOUT THE GUEST
This episode features an interview with Kristi Langdon, Head of Customer Experience at Daimler Trucks North America. In this episode, Kristi talks about setting employees up for successful delivery of the customer experience, the importance of connecting every employee with your end customers, and how CX actually starts with LX, or leadership experience.
“Start by listening. You would be amazed at the frequency with which we forget to listen, that we forget to start with voice of the customer. Because oftentimes we make assumptions. We think we know the right way, but if you would just take the time to listen to the customer in the front end and really understand what their pain point is, you would then inform what is the right problem you’re trying to solve. Too many times we make those assumptions and it leads us down the wrong path. And we end up solving something that never needed to be solved.”
