In today’s world of advanced telecommunication we can communicate at the touch of a button and get quick accurate results – yet it is just one part of true communication, more like ‘one-dimensional’ communication where only the words make up the message. Then when we communicate on the phone or face to face we interact fuller - up to ‘three-dimensional’ communication if you will, resulting in sometimes lasting feelings - positive or negative.
In customer service, people sometimes don’t realize the impact one can make on another’s feelings after a simple interaction or when handling a ‘situation’. We can learn to steer around even negative interactions by just how we handle the situation, hence having the customer go away with positive feelings about the situation rather than negativity, frustration, etc.
This course will give participants a fresh look at how to deal with others and how one’s sometimes simple behavior can impact the whole customer experience with lasting impressions while truly giving customer service beyond expectations.
