Handling Difficult Customers and Customer Complaints
18-19 February 2021, (10:00am-12:00pm)
A Customer Service Representative (CSR) is exactly what the name suggests; a CSR is representative of the organisation the customer is dealing with. Hence, any impression the customer gets from the CSR is applied to the whole company. The CSR is seen as the face of the company and if the customer has any issues, it is this front line that he or she needs to interact with.
As a result, customer services are of paramount interest to organisations and even individuals and it is a skill that everyone in this business must master. Knowing how to deal with customers in difficult situations, how to response to their requests or concerns or simply providing a positive and memorable experience for your clients helps you and your company to rise above the competition. Customer service is a skill which can be learned and mastered through practice and persistence.
During this workshop we introduce delegates to the core principles of customer services. By employing these values and adopting the correct attitude, delegates will be able to handle the vast majority of customer interactions with ease no matter how unusual or complicated they are.
