Rethink Job Titles

Creating Disney Magic Episode 438 Rethink Job TitlesToday, Jody and I explore how changing job titles can clarify expectations.

Many organizations need to think about reevaluating and rethinking their job titles. A title needs to be a clear indicator of an individuals role. They must be associated with what they do and where they spend their time. That is why your title should tell you where to be and what you need to focus on.

Rethink what your team is focusing on. This can help address customer frustration as well. Having clear communication of expectations helps your customer know who to reach out to and interact with when frustration is present.

Make sure you have the power to back the promise you are making, even with titles. You are setting expectations, and you need to make sure your team is living up to them. A title sets expectations for employees and guests. Help your team understand the “how” so they meet those expectations.

Once you know why you want to do it, get everyone in the room. Everyone must be on the same page and have a clear picture of where you all are headed. Communicate expectations and figure out ways for them to get it all done. Customer service is the “name of the game” and needs to be emphasized. Have systems and procedures to help your team facilitate the expectations. It will create buy-in and a better overall experience for all.
