1) A Complaint is a Gift – During this portion of the session, participants discover ways to transform complaints into valuable customer feedback. Hands-on exercises provide an opportunity to practice techniques that help decrease frustration and defensiveness.
2) Difficult or Just Different? – This segment includes an optional style assessment (see below) that offers fun ways for participants to discover the differences in communication styles and minimize customer service difficulties caused by clashes in style. Participants learn techniques that help turn the most difficult customers into allies.
3) Calm, Cool, and Collected – How do you maintain self-control when resolving conflict with a customer? In this unit, participants practice strategies to help maintain their sanity and professionalism when faced with belligerent customers.
4) Stress Less: Tips for Avoiding Burnout – Workplace burnout not only affects job performance, it also has an adverse impact on employee health. This part of the day features a brief “stress test” to help participants assess their stress levels.
