"Resiliency Edge"
gives new meaning to the word N.I.C.E.™

Participants learn "tools" to Neutralize Irritations Customers Experience™

"Resiliency Edge" teaches airport and airline workers how to manage their pressures by solving problems for distressed travelers - no small task in today’s turbulent aviation environment.

Participants learn how to "neutralize irritations" to create three winners: customers win because they get their airport problems solved; workers win because they reduce the source of their stress (upset travelers.) Airports and airlines win by gaining enhanced service levels.

Read examples of N.I.C.E. stories at participating airports:

JFK International Airport

Pittsburgh International Airport

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport

Coming Soon: Stories from Newark Liberty and LaGaurdia Airports
