The Southwest Effect -- Successful Practices of a Market Leader

Southwest Airlines has given the business world a textbook example that providing fabulous customer service and maintaining high employee morale in a low-cost environment is possible – and indeed profitable in Corporate America today. But what’s the real story? As a key developer of Southwest Airlines’ legendary positively outrageous customer service and leadership training programs, Jason Young knows that great culture does not “just happen.” A customer service initiative can be created and nurtured to flourish into a customer service culture. Beyond the headlines and the hype, Jason shares the real inside story behind the success of the company consistently rated No. 1 in customer service and employee satisfaction. Best of all, you'll learn how you can take these proven organizational principles to your team or company. You won’t want to miss this inside edition from the man who knows it best.

Jason Young has been called a "rare breed" when it comes to developing leaders and customer service initiatives. No wonder. As a former senior-level manager at Southwest Airlines, Jason learned the value of a successful workplace culture. During his 10-years with the airline consistently rated No. 1 in customer service and employee satisfaction, Jason Young was a key driver in creating and developing the company’s innovative training programs for its successful leadership and customer service culture that have become renowned in the business world today.

Driven by the need to extend his unique insight in leadership development to others outside Southwest, Jason Young separated from the pack in 1998, when he left the airline to launch his own consulting practice to focus on corporate training and development services specializing in culture, leadership, customer service and team building. Today, as president of LeadSmart, Inc., Jason Young shares his vision in developing successful corporate cultures with forward-thinking companies, including Starbucks, IHOP, Radio Shack and Tyson Foods, to name just a few. He has even returned to his old turf—Southwest Airlines—to extend his knowledge as a corporate training consultant in the leadership development area once again. Jason has captured his philosophy of creating high performance cultures in his books, The Culturetopia Effect and Servicetopia.
