When it comes to refined service and exquisite hospitality, one name stands high above the rest: The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. With ceaseless attention to every luxurious detail, the company has set the bar for creating memorable customer experiences in world-class settings. Now, for the first time, the leadership secrets behind the company's extraordinary success are revealed.
The New Gold Standard takes you on an exclusive tour behind the scenes of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. Granted unprecedented access to the company's executives, staff, and its award-winning Leadership Center training facilities, bestselling author Joseph Michelli explored every level of leadership within the organization. He emerged with the key principles leaders at any company can use to provide a customer experience unlike any other, such as:
• Understanding the ever-evolving needs of customers
• Empowering employees by treating them with the utmost respect
• Anticipating customers' unexpressed needs and concerns
• Developing and conducting an unsurpassed training regimen
Sharing engaging stories from the company's employees - from the corporate office and hotels around the globe - Michelli describes the innovative methods the company uses to create peerless guest experiences and explains how it constantly hones and improves them.
The New Gold Standard weaves practical how-to advice, proven leadership tools, and the wisdom of experts to help you create and embed superior customer-service principles, processes, and practices in your own organization.

This book included many great and inspiring stories of the employees of the Ritz. Would have rated the book higher, but it had many slow points throughout it.
The ritz Carlton is an organization we can learn a lot from. Their culture is amazing. We will be trying to include a number of these items
Ritz-Carlton really has set the new gold standard. I'm very impressed with the book and not to mention the amazing level of detail focusing on serving customers. I wish all companies adopted this great customer service culture.
"Great for Hospitality Industry"
Yes, if i were working in the hospitality industry.
Well researched and some great stories came out.
Excellent book but very hard to apply some of the insights from Ritz Carlton outwith hospitality.
