PROGRAM DETAILS



Introduction

The primary purpose of any business is to create and keep customers. Customer acquisition and retention evolve far beyond service – in fact, customer “service” has reached commodity status. You can get “service” just about anywhere you go. So how do you stand out from the crowd? Those working in a customer service environment must have the correct state of mind and the motivation to achieve a satisfactory outcome for the customer as a minimum result. This seminar will equip participants with the skills, knowledge and attitude necessary to become a world-class provider which will exceed the expectations and delight your customers.

Learning Objectives

Organizations, in this day and age, are very similar in terms of their product offerings and pricing structures. Any competitive advantage is short-lived. Therefore, the only differential is the levels of service provided by a particular company. This comes down to one thing – it all comes from PEOPLE. Therefore, the most competitive advantage you have in today’s markets is your customer service people. This seminar will enable participants to see the benefits of providing memorable experiences to customers and how that benefits the customer service provider, your customers and your organization.

Target Audience

This seminar is designed for customer service professionals, agents, whether on the phone or face to face, who are new to the role or who would like to develop their skills further. This seminar will also benefit customer service managers or team leaders who are looking to refresh their own skills or enhance those of their team members.

Training Methodology

The program uses a range of learning styles, but the principal approach that will be taken is experiential learning. We learn things as we try them out, stepping out of the zones that we find comfortable. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment and try out new skills and understanding, before finally deciding how to apply and integrate the learning into their  workplace activities.
