Training Approach: Creating Buy-in

This training provides both the awareness and the clarity that customer service agents need to give excellent customer service. They will develop a greater awareness of customer service by building their own Customer Service for Excellence Model based on their experience of good and bad customer service. They then gain clarity of what to do in their jobs by creating specific strategies, procedures and "next steps" based on the created Customer Service for Excellence Model. They will be able to solve their customer's problem easily using a simple process. The result will be that your customers feel that they are "well taken care of" and their problem will be solved.

We find that this training approach is far more effective than most customer service training programs. We believe that the way to ensure your "customer service agents" provide great customer service is to go beyond technique and the "suppose tos". Our focus is on getting "buy-in" from the workshop participants and getting their 100% agreement as to what things they can do to create excellent customer service experiences for their customers.

Interactive Format

This workshop is fast-paced, highly interactive, participatory, and productive. It includes discussions, games and quizzes, demonstration and practice, lecturettes, story telling, role plays, and problem solving. Participants will be working individually, in small and large groups.
