One of the most important drivers of competitive differentiation is the way your customer facing teams interact with each stakeholder along the continuum of care.
Too often these interactions are one sided primarily serving the goals of the sales force and the brand, and treating customer concerns as objections to be handled. The consequence is a one sided experience that opens the door to competitive attack.
