Don't keep your customers in the dark.  Elite Training cartoon of customers' eyes lit up by candle light

A patient does not want to hear that their symptoms are their own fault and nothing can be done (even if the patient caused the problem). Customers are the same: A vital ingredient of any lasting customer service programme is an emphasis on identifying creative and innovative solutions to give your customers what they want … on time, every time … at the right cost.

Coping with awkward and complaining customers effectively, whether they are ratepayers, disgruntled passengers, or irate account customers, marks out professional customer service.

It is important to also appreciate internal customers, who need the same care and understanding as external customers.

Just one person can mar a customer's perception. Our customer service training will enable your staff to appreciate the benefits of effective customer service.

“The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of a cheap price has disappeared.”Anon.

How it works:

We discuss the customer services you provide and training areas you would like covered, then tailor the course to meet your needs.

With our easy-to-learn techniques and exercises, participants show empathy, provide solutions and deliver effective customer service.

The course workbook is a valuable reference, covering all aspects of the course, packed with ideas, tips and practical examples. Our course delivery is interactive and depending on your needs, includes feedback on delegates' letters, telephone technique exercises and face-to-face customer scenarios. Organisations also usually opt to learn through one of our customer services business games, for example Customer Service DecisionsPipeline and Running your Business for a Profit.
