The five characteristics for human service professionals are: Self-awareness, Ability to communicate, Empathy, Responsibility/commitment, and Flexibility.

Self-awareness is the deep understanding of one's own self, this includes comprehending self-knowledge about beliefs, attitudes, values, stereotypes, biases, cultural and gender differences, and behaviors. Self-awareness is beneficial in diminishing preconceptions and opinions, allowing one to modify or change their "self" toward a client's perspective.

Empathy is the ability to see or feel what the client has experienced. Similar to self-awareness, empathy furthers the progression of understanding oneself and enables a provider to put their feet into the client's shoes. Providers who have experienced as well as relate to the client's situation have an easier time expressing empathy.

Responsibility/Commitment are ideal promises to a client. The provider shall support the client in whichever possible way is needed through responsibility and will offer the highest quality of service through commitment. A provider displays a strong presence of professionalism and acts to the best of their abilities. They will adhere to a code of ethic or conduct and will remain honest with their client throughout their service.

Flexibility provides versatility to a provider’s service. They may need to change, abandon, or revise plans if the program suddenly becomes difficult or unusual. Flexibility allows a provider to learn new alternatives to service.

Self-awareness is the most important characteristic to service through surpassing the limitations of one's own self. The "self" is defeating because of the ego, which limits one from discovering flaws and embracing new ideas. When we give too much into our ego, we are blinded by vanity, and how can one provide proper service when they are unable to see past their own…...

Monson taught Brigham Young University students that their student days should include “the matter of spiritual preparation,” including service to others. “An attitude of love characterized the mission of the Master,” “He gave sight to the blind, legs to the lame, and life to the dead. Perhaps when we [face] our Maker, we will not be asked, ‘How many positions did you hold?’ but rather, ‘How many people did you help?’ In reality,” “you can never love the Lord until you serve Him by serving His people.” As we put others before ourselves we began to develop the Attributes of Christ and transform ourselves into true active Christians and followers of the Master.

... Services in Your Area CIS 505 Communication Technology Professor: Strayer University Abstract This paper describes the different high speed internet providers in my community, such as DSL and Cable services. 1. Identify the Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) and cable modem services reference in this assignment and the region(s) in which they operate. Both Comcast cable, which provides internet via a cable modem, and Verizon DSL, which provides service via a telephone line, service Chesterfield, Virginia. (Verizon) (Comcast) DSL requires the user to connect to the internet via a modem, which converts digital data to an analog signal so it is able to transverse across phone lines. This service provides a high speed link to the internet. (Stallings) Verizon, at the present time is slowly moving away from DSL and into FiOS (Fiber Optic Service), which is being marketed as a much faster service than the traditional DSL; this is so that Verizon can compete with cable. Verizon has stated that they are also going to be raising the rates for existing DSL users to force them into upgrading to FiOS. Comcast cable also provides a high speed cable internet service which requires a modem as well, but instead of working over telephone wires it works over the cable wires that provide television service. Both Verizon and Comcast offer Wi-Fi services, which means a customer, can connect to the internet from anywhere, and are not just limited to the home. Wi-Fi uses radio......

...Five Services to Help Grow Your IT Services Business in 2013 — and Beyond Introduction 2013 is a year of great opportunity for Managed Service Providers (MSPs). As reported in the Wall Street Journal, IT spending by businesses with fewer than 500 employees is expected to grow by $4 billion to a total of $27.2 billion in 2015.1 The good news does not end there for MSPs. According to a recent study, 89% of MSP clients are “very” or “mostly” satisfied with their providers.2 In fact, a significant majority of clients reported that they intend to increase their IT spending in the next two years. Now is the time to position your company for growth by preparing to meet new and evolving client needs. 3 If you are an MSP seeking to grow or maintain your business in 2013 and beyond, market conditions are such that there will be many opportunities to acquire new clients or expand on the services provided to your existing clients. Your challenge is in differentiating your business from thousands of other providers in the marketplace who share your ambitions. A recent Wall Street Journal article revealed that there are now over 300,000 independent IT consultants and 114,000 small IT services companies providing support to small and mid-sized businesses (SMB).4 There may also be new competitors on the horizon as technology retailers such as Staples, Apple, and Best Buy eye the SMB marketplace and work to develop offerings that will compete with the traditional......

A study focuses on the refinement of a scale for measuring service loyalty dimensions and the relationships between dimensions of service quality and these service loyalty dimensions. The results of an empirical study of a large sample of customers from four different service industries suggest that four dimensions of service loyalty can be identified: purchase intentions, word-of-mouth...

...Heritage Village. Many of those things included learning about how people use to live and how people did certain tasks so many years ago. However, I learned several things about service. The first thing I learned about the neighborhood I served was that there are so many organizations, businesses, and even ordinary people who are in need of service. Going to Heritage Village allowed me to realize that there are so many opportunities to perform a service. When people think of service, they think that they have to go to another country to do it. We do not notice that there are services needed close to home. For example, Heritage Village offers many opportunities. They are in need of volunteers and not necessarily money. By just working for an hour and a half, we were able to complete many tasks at Heritage Village. Sometimes that is all it takes: simply giving our time to our community. One thing I learned about myself was that by just giving my time, I can make a big impact. We all have to be willing to give our time to help others. Performing a service should not be a self-service. True service is a service that is “hidden work.” We should not do things so that we can gain attention or praise. We should do the service because that is what we are called by God to do. Jesus performed the greatest service in the world. And we should take that as an example of how to live....

...1. I remembered my favorite story about my best customer service experience ever. Sometime in 2001, I was traveling from Chicago to Boston on the Airlines shuttle to my scheduled hotel. But that day was unlucky for the bad weather result in the flight delay. Anyway... my shuttle gets delayed several hours at Boston (insert sarcastic look of shock) and I end up getting into Boston around 1:00am. Then the fun really started, because "the Big Dig" was still in full shovel and even at that time of night/morning, it took nearly 2 hours to get from the airport to the hotel. Brutal. So, I get to the hotel at 3:00am, needing to be ready to deliver my preso at 8:00am. Ideal set up for a great presentation? Not likely. So, I drag myself into the Hotel and the gentleman at the counter looks at me and says, "Welcome to the Boston. You look exhausted!" So I explain the cause of my pain as he continues the check in process, not thinking about much of anything except, get me to a bed asap! Finally, he looks up, hands me a key and says, "I'm sorry you had a rough night, enjoy your room." I grab the key, head to my room and open the door to the biggest hotel suite I've ever seen in my life. I was so tired; I didn't even realize I was headed to the top floor of the hotel and into the Presidential Suite! Brilliantly lit, beautifully furnished, fresh flowers, the whole shabang. 2. I was only in the room for maybe 4-5 hours, but more importantly, I'll never forget the treatment I received......

Services’s not matched to my order because when I tasted it, it’s not Java Chip that I ordered. I checked the name written on the cup to make sure if my name was placed there but my name was there. So, what I did was I went to the counter and complained about my order. I told them that they gave me a wrong order because it’s not really my order. After I complained, they apologized and said sorry to me. And what they did to recover their wrong service was that they gave me my order Java Chip with venti size which is the biggest size of their frappe. Also they gave additional product which was doughnut just to recover their wrong service. For me its passable, as long as they will recover what they did wrong to their customers and as long as they will satisfy their customers. Because there are some customers that are not easily satisfy with the replacement. But for me, it okay. Their strategies on how they will redesign their service are gradual. They will not let others customers know what happened. They will immediately do actions in that particular service. 2. Ministop I remembered when I bought a fried chicken meal at Ministop. Ministop is one of the convenient store like 7/11. But their difference is Ministop have their own fried chicken in their menu. So I was saying bought 2 pieces of friend chicken at Ministop and I found out that their chicken smelled spoiled. I tore a small piece of it and tore open its meat and then the smell came out. It was cooked alright but it......
