When Having a Great Brand Hurts You
We all want to have the best brand we possibly can, right? We want customers to know what we stand for, to understand how passionate we are about our business, and to think of us as leaders in our industry or market.
But there are times when an outstanding reputation can actually hurt you, as I discovered recently in my interactions with a supposedly stellar brand, Ritz-Carlton.
