A Jar of Oysters: Empowering Teams to Surprise and Delight

New Seasons Market

“How good are these oysters?”“Well to be honest we’ve gotten mixed reviews. Would you like to try them and see for yourself?” The supermarket employee asked.“Can you do that?”“Sure,” he replied, unscrewed the top of the oyster jar and offered it. “What do you think?”After a taste, “To be honest they are so-so.”“I understand. As I said, they have gotten mixed reviews. I’ll let the manager know your opinion.” He closed the jar and wrote down a note on a clipboard.“Seriously, you can just do that?”Sure,” he said. “We’re encouraged to help customers make good decisions on the food that they buy. Don’t worry, the oysters won’t go to waste. Someone will take them home and cook them up tonight. Is there anything else I can help you with?”“No, but I’m really impressed with your customer experience.”
