Effective customer service training is critical to your organization’s success. Without your customers, you wouldn’t be in business.

In this course we cover all the most important elements of service any person involved in direct interactions with customers should know and apply. From the necessary behavioral and communication skills to the right attitude and including specific methods to analyze and improve the service provided, we cover it all in a straight forward and effective manner that will help participants ensure customer satisfaction and delight in the most challenging situations.

Whether an employee works directly with customers, produces the products you sell, or provides support for those who perform these essential functions, the goal for everyone is to help keep customers – whether internal or external — satisfied and coming back for more. Without customer service training, you are undermining your organization’s chances to grow and prosper.

Course objective

Employee customer service training activities can also provide both theoretical and practical learning for your workers. For instance, sales customer service training can provide courses for employees to take for telephone interactions, such as how they can build rapport with customers, and how to handle problems and stress effectively, etc. At the end of each course, you can test their knowledge by having them go through mock calls that specifically target the knowledge they’ve gained. This will help you know in which areas your employees’ customer service is already adequate, and which areas need more work.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of customer service in a competitive environment
  • Defend the vital role internal customers play and show that their satisfaction is key for the success of an organization
  • Practice the techniques of managing customer expectations and delighting customers
  • Provide better, faster service and increase customer satisfaction
  • Recognize early signals of customer irritation and respond appropriately in order to quickly find a workable solution to the problem
