Elite Circle - Becoming A Part Of The Customer’s Life

In the world of luxury, a customer’s association with a brand begins the moment they choose to buy the product. Well-known brands with years of legacy are easily recognizable. They are often seen as symbols of prestige and status. These products, small or big, act as conversation starters. They continue to be a part of the customer’s life even after the product is longer in use. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that customer’s relationship with a luxury brand begins with a purchase and continues as long as it manages to stay on their mind. A brand can achieve this through the experience, quality and efforts that the brand invests in maintaining the relationship.

Building Collaborative Teams

The strength of any organisation lies in how well the employees work together. A couple of years ago, when we used the word ‘team’, we immediately imagined a bunch of people working together at the same place, exchanging ideas, building plans and working towards achieving collective goals.

Becoming an Influential Leader

Warren Bennis once remarked, “Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.” The first step in doing this is being able to articulate the vision and do it justice while doing so. The impact that we aim to create begins with our ability to impact and motivate our teams to work towards our objectives. The same is the rationale behind the leadership of Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India.

Communication is the key in this scenario. It is impossible to flip through the history books and find a leader who didn’t inspire others. This skill isn’t something that you can fake or pretend to have. Any leader has to work tirelessly towards bettering their communication skills in order to be good at their job.

While each leader has their own unique style, there are some noticeable commonalities amongst those who communicate well.
