One recent very successful custom program has been the Service Leadership programs with the Whistler Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber and Executive Programs at the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business have overhauled Whistler’s 27-year-old, community-wide service training program to educate thousands of Whistler workers each year in customer service.

With a vision to become known as the best resort mountain destination in the world for service the newly named “Whistler Experience” program enhancement will teach teams how to deliver powerful experiences that customers won’t stop talking about.

The Whistler Experience is a suite of programs that leverages learning partnerships to deliver the world-class content, supported by extensive human behaviour research. Gustavson's 8 Moments of Power methodology teaches how to recognize and apply 8 key principles of human behavior to win and keep customers. Participants learn to build better relationships, deliver world-class service and sell more effectively. This powered-up program is already teaching managers and supervisors to be better leaders through train-the-trainer materials and coaching tools so they can develop their teams

"Gustavson's service management specialization prepares participants to take on leadership roles in the new economy, an economy that is increasingly dependent on service industries for growth," says Mark Colgate, Associate Dean at Gustavson and trailblazer for the new Whistler Experience program.
