About This Course

Habits, working environments, attitudes and beliefs are barriers to developing great communication skills. What we believe about our customers, influences how we behave towards them and in turn, how customers respond.

Training Customer Service staff on communication skills alone, will not achieve the results that companies strive for. Without equipping staff with the skills and techniques to manage everyday emotions, face work challenges proactively and change negative thoughts and beliefs to positive ones, it is unlikely that customers will be receiving the service they deserve.

The content of the course will be tailored to meet your requirements.

At the end of the course, all attendees will complete a specific action plan.
