As most account managers will tell you, it's never fun to wonder if you're doing a good job at meeting client expectations. It's not that we, as account managers, feel like we're doing a BAD job. It's that it's often difficult to understand the preferences and personalities of each individual client. While one client may be quick to respond to emails, another might not have answered an email in months because they just trust you to help them meet their goals.
But it's the unknown of whether we're meeting their expectations or not that can drive us crazy. That's why it's important for account managers to understand and honestly evaluate our companies' ability to delight customers and provide a consistent and positive experience across the board.
