How to Manage CX Teams in Times of Change with Dale Carnegie’s CEO


Emerging technologies like AI are reshaping the way businesses interact with their customers, while rapidly shifting expectations demand adaptable, emotionally intelligent leaders. Joe Hart, CEO of Dale Carnegie Training, understands this dynamic landscape. His insights on managing change, embracing technology with a human touch, and cultivating a customer-centric culture offer a roadmap for customer experience leaders.

Disruptive change is an opportunity, not a threat. Hart stresses that leaders must move beyond familiar processes, seeking continuous learning and improvement. This mindset unlocks the potential for innovation within evolving technologies.

While technology undeniably transforms CX, Hart underscores its role as a powerful tool, not a substitute for human connection. Successful leaders prioritize training their teams on relevant platforms, and they foster a culture where technology augments, rather than replaces, the empathy and problem-solving skills that make for truly exceptional customer experiences.

Self-aware and empathetic leaders can navigate the complexities of technological change while maintaining a strong focus on human interaction. By leading with understanding and prioritizing communication – especially during times of uncertainty – CX leaders build trust, foster resilience in their teams, and shape a positive customer experience from the inside out.

Joe Hart believes that the foundation of a successful CX organization is its culture. Create a culture where team members feel comfortable taking calculated risks, innovating, and speaking their minds, even when sharing critical feedback.

The CX landscape is shifting rapidly, but one thing remains constant: the power of human connection. By cultivating a growth mindset, embracing technology strategically, practicing emotional intelligence, and building a dynamic team culture, CX leaders can empower their teams to deliver the exceptional experiences that create loyal customers and lasting success.
