5-0 out of 5 stars Applying the magic to my business!
Jeff Kober has done an outstanding job highlighting the nuances of Disney's approach to customer service and demonstrating ways the same level of service can be applied to my small business.The personal experiences, and the historical perspective behind the design of Disney attractions and systems, made this an easy and interesting read that left me excited to go out and apply the same principles.

I have seldom read a business book that was this much fun to read and contained so much valuable information.


5-0 out of 5 stars A fun book, and easy to apply to your own business
Jeff Kober does a great job at showing the inner workings at Disney from a fans viewpoint, then explains how things work and why.The best part, though, is how he shows you how you can apply these practices to improve your own business.I highly reccomend his book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Creating Positive Customer Interactions
In J. Jeff Kober's The Wonderful World of Customer Service at Disney he states in his preface, "To all who read this, may you find not only ideas, but also hope and inspiration in adapting the lessons and experiences of Disney to create magic in your own organization." That may seem like a tall order, but Kober is up to the task. If his name sounds familiar, it is probably because you have been reading his articles on MousePlanet for the past several years.

Throughout his fist book, Kober leaves no stone unturned, from animation to park warning signs, while examine what has made the success of Disney something to admire and aspire to. Yet, in doing so, he isn't simply touting the wonders of Disney, he is also discussing real-world scenarios where similar problem solving skills could be used. Similarly, while The Wonderful World of Customer Service at Disney covers overarching topics like philosophies and standards, it also breaks down everything from leadership, responses to customers, and the feelings of guests/clients/customers to the waiting game, guest compliance, and creating memorable (in a good way) experiences.

Perhaps one of the most useful tools Kober presents us with is the bulleted questions we can ask ourselves. As anyone who has ever worked in a customer service field can attest, there are always ways to improve our customers' experiences. Throughout the book, Kober repeatedly offers us questions that can be internalized through our own Magic Mirrors and used to relaunch our attitudes and policies. One such question that I feel anyone could ask themselves daily is, "Are there Magical Moments or Take 5s I currently provide?"

For anyone who is thinking about starting their own business, has their own business, or is looking for a way to jumpstart their, and their employees, sluggish outlook on business, I highly recommend J. Jeff Kober's The Wonderful World of Customer Service at Disney. For the rest of you, I also recommend this book, you'll learn something about the way in which Disney looks at and interacts with their guests. And who knows, you might just find something to spark more positive interactions in your own life.

5-0 out of 5 stars Disney "magic"
The author captures the magic of Disney, paradoxically by showing that it isn't magic at all but the fruit of hard, focused, imaginative, persistent work and attention to minute detail. The book provides very specific steps people can take to build customer satisfaction in their organizations. The author communicates joy, delight, enthusiasm, and thorough understanding for the Disney model. The book is upbeat, positive, informed, specific, and original. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pixie Dust
Behind the costumes, the fantasy and the magic, Disney World is a business like any other. And while some may think it is an unlikely business against which to benchmark, in his book, Jeff Kober has clearly demonstrated that it is clearly among the best.

Con-way learned this first hand nearly a decade ago through observation and study of the business behind the magic - and if a transportation (trucking) company can find transferable best practices from an entertainment business, anyone can find the 'golden nuggets'
that can change or enhance their business model for greater effectiveness. "The Wonderful World of Customer Service at Disney", is the best resource to support this journey.

Con-way's view of the role culture can play in business success was impacted by our Disney experience and our best practices have since become a model for other businesses in turn. So, whether your mission is to deliver happiness or freight, a little pixie dust can never hurt. ... Read more

Where To Seek Job Opportunities and Funding Sources For Your Work,
If you're an artist, you intuit it. Art is there within you. This book is for those who on some level know what they truly are -- either you are trying to learn how to do this artistic life better, or you are trying to decide whether or not to do it at all. How can you take this vague idea of being an artist and make it a reality? Get clear and make a plan.

How will this book help? By pointing you in some directions, showing you where to get information you may need. By giving you the experience of others who have gone before you who may have done something you can benefit from, and who have been gracious enough to pass it on. By helping you to see what kind of a plan you need. By helping you make a plan. Bottom line, as an artist you have an even greater need to make long-term plans than other folks. Income will likely come at irregular intervals. You'll have to save money whenever you can, get good credit, maintain a fuel-efficient vehicle, and find the way to do your art. Yet we all must budget for rent, food, telephone, transportation, clothing, health insurance, gas and electric - the stuff of day-to-day living.

Inside this book are practical suggestions and ideas to help you cope with artist's life including:Housing, Telephone, Home Office, Car, Health Insurance, Finances, The Internet, Legal Assistance, Grants, MFA Programs, Theatre Companies and Artist Retreats, Working Overseas, Putting Together Your Artist Portfolio.

Art That Pays will give you ideas and practical, concrete suggestions. If you are an artist and you have decided to pursue it, this thing you are embarked upon is noble. We hope to give you some encouragement because you can never have too much support. And we hope, perhaps, to make you smile at least once or twice, if not in amusement, at least in recognition of the absurdity, joy and wonder that is this life we have. ... Read more
