Course Description

Essential call control skills Overview The cost to an organisation of mis-handled calls is very often out of all proportion to the root cause of the initial call. Yet the skills required to control customer calls are well-known and can be successfully taught and mastered. This programme shows how calls can be controlled and dealt with swiftly, efficiently and to all reasonable customer satisfaction. Training objectives By the end of this course participants will be better able to: Recognise the causes of customer frustration Quickly establish the facts Remove behaviours which antagonise or aggravate the situations Take control of the call to offer confidence to the caller Reduce the number of escalated calls Manage the expectations of the caller as to possible solutions Deal confidently with uncertainty, reassuring the customer through style and manner Format This one-day course uses a mixture of formal tutor inputs, practical exercises, role play and tutor-facilitated discussion. Depending on the number of participants and their pre-course skills levels, it may be preferable to run this programme over two days rather than one.

The content was well received, and accurately reflected the day to day issues that occur on a busy desk. I have since reorganised the department to take advantage of the new professionalism... and it has made a big difference. Given the success of the proactive telephone selling course you prepared and ran for me a few years ago ... I just knew it would be a success.' Philips 'This was clearly an excellent course. It really brought the best out of the managers. You've given them a foundation for the rest of their working lives.'
