Customer Service Workshop


Protect your company’s reputation by having additional customer service training for email, telephone, online (Zoom), social media and face-to-face conversations.  Customer loyalty is really hard to maintain, so protect your brand, and help yourself and your staff deal with customers and difficult conversations. Staff need to be able to detect and diffuse conflict and aggressive behavior, and manage it professionally when it does happen.  Learn to be assertive without being aggressive, and how to avoid an argument. 

Who Will Benefit?

This course is for anyone looking to increase their ability to make customers (or people in general) happy and keep the peace when conflict arises. Ideal for those in management, or those who have a lot of face-time with staff and clients in sales positions, customer service positions, or for those involved in training.
