How do you train your staff to give out of this world customer service, and to actually want to do it?

I'm a new manager, just about to start my job. I've been an Assistant Manager, but now I'm fully incharge, and have to ensure my store gets 100% on our mystery shop. I know I give fantastic customer service. How can I ensure my staff will too? I know when I was a sunday sales assistant, I wasn't bothered, It didn't matter to me if I sold another belt or another pair of shoes. How do I make my staff really want to give fab customer service?

It's all about incentives. When I coach businesses and managers they all ask the same question that you did. The answer is simple, act as the employee. What's in it for them? There is a very good chance that working in your store is not their life's ambition, and they really only care about their paycheck, not yours... More
