The importance of stress management - Professional Carwashing & Detailing

The importance of stress management

If you're stressed out, your employees and customers will notice. Be sure you're creating a positive experience at your business.

Learn, teach and reward stress management techniques. A Harris poll says that 90 percent of all Americans live in a state of chronic stress. Yikes. No wonder customers get treated so poorly. Make sure people understand the role they play in controlling their own stress. We don’t have control over every circumstance; we do have control of how we perceive them. Take a deep breath, count to 10, walk away (physically or mentally) when you have to and call a “time-out.” Short circuit stress on the way in. Learn it and teach it. Reinforce it. “Bob, I noticed how well you reacted with that angry customer yesterday, I was glad to see you take a deep breath and not react defensively — good job — you saved a valuable customer, and your own health as well. I’m proud to have you on the team.”

Most folks lead hectic lives — balancing work and personal responsibilities can sometimes be overwhelming. Whether they are battling traffic during the morning commute, shuttling kids back and forth from soccer games or heading to the great outdoors to do a little camping, their vehicles’ cleanliness is compromised on a daily basis. While the majority of car owners would love to pamper their rides with a nice, long hand washing and thorough personal detailing, they simply do not have the extra time to spare. They opt for the convenience and value of an automatic carwash to keep their automotive investments looking good.
