The course for developing your telephone service and etiquette skills.
“Your skills on the telephone means delivering a positive experience to our customers and it’s so much more than just solving problems or addressing complaints. Telephone skills are part of a holistic customer experience that is capable of providing a critical competitive advantage in today’s cluttered and commoditised marketplace.”
An incoming phone call to your business is often a customer’s first point of contact with your organisation, and it’s during these interactions that customers form instant and lasting impressions of you, your colleagues and your business. That’s why how well you communicate over the telephone, and the level of service the customer feels he or she is receiving goes a long way to helping you manage your customer’s expectations on the phone.
The half-day Telephone Power training course helps you to build your confidence and skills for handling every internal and external telephone call even more professionally. You’ll learn how to perfect your telephone skills with active listening, as well as discovering how to constructively respond to customer enquiries, handle complaints and control every telephone call smoothly.
