Clarity of Course™ - Customer Service Training  |  Diane Helbig
Dealing with customers, prospects, and co-workers can sometimes be challenging. At the same time, it’s critically important that we embrace communication and business strategies that ensure we are positively representing ourselves and our organization. This program is designed to explore actual experiences attendees are encountering, identify possible reasons why challenging situations occur, and develop strategies to reduce or eliminate difficult encounters. Participants will:

  • Have the opportunity to share challenging situations they have experienced
  • Explore possible reasons through group discussion
  • Rework events with new behaviors and new words. We delve into communication strategies that work. (This discussion includes listening skills training, written, verbal, and email word choice and etiquette)
  • Explore what customers, prospects, and co-workers want and need; and how to meet those needs. (This discussion includes creating decision making and problem solving strategies, conflict resolution, and embracing a desire to help)
  • Commit to at least one new behavior moving forward for interacting  with others
