Customer Service Excellence – What does service excellence mean to you? In the first module of this training we will answer this and so much more. You will learn why customer service is important, why knowing your customer is essential and how to become knowledgeable and confident in the products and services that you sell.
First Impressions – In module two of the training you will develop an understanding of what first impressions mean, why they are important and communication techniques and strategies to make the best first impression. You will also cover the basics of tonality, inflection and body language as well as understanding the importance of a tailored approach.
Obstacles – Recognising obstacles in providing customer service and understanding some of the challenges that you are likely to encounter is important and that will be the focus of this module. You will recognise the values that are important in customer service along with handling complaints in the best possible way while taking action as swiftly as possible.
Quality Service – Next, you will be exploring the core components of quality service, covering everything from teamwork through to sales, presentation and qualities that you must possess to deliver the highest standards of customer care.
