By Dr. Peter Tarlow Many travelers, and most vacationers, see a tourism experience as a luxury or way to pamper oneself.  Often people will work an entire year for the sake of a few weeks of “vacation magic.” Without good employees, no matter how luxurious the circumstances are, the dream vacation has the potential to turn into a nightmare.  Tourism success, to a great extent then, depends on the quality of your business’ or tourism office’s human resources.  Tourism managers must find ways to inspire employees provide their guests with the best experience possible. Ironically, tourism experiences are rarely a question of money ...

ProSolutions | September 20, 2018

By Katie Scheer First impressions are paramount since they are highly accurate; how you are instantly evaluated can make or break your success. And you have heard before that a first impression is made within 5 seconds, but I believe it's faster. Why? Personal experience– I get a feeling about something or a situation within 2 seconds (don't you?).

Gary Hernbroth | August 24, 2017

By Gary Hernbroth I don't know whether to laugh or cry when I hear someone say, "I'm not in sales, I'm in customer service." They apparently have not seen the light as to two important tenets that I've learned over my career, being on both sides of the sales and service coin: When you are selling someone something, you are providing a service to them; When you are giving someone customer service, you are in effect selling them something too.
