About the course
(Everybody is into customer service and everyone is a customer!)
Whether you’re in the service industry or not, customer service is essential to success. When we say success, we look at how we can be successful in BOTH the personal and professional arenas.
I. Choose & Stick to a Customer Service Mindset
Customer service is a concept that should not be confined to the service industry. The concepts apply in whatever field you are in. What are the benefits of living a customer service centered life?
II. Construct A Positive Experience
The difference between you and the other guy (or the other company!) is the “experience” that people will glean from interacting with you. That experience will either build you up or tear you down.
III. Channel Your Leadership Skills
We all need to lead through personal mastery and leverage our area of giftedness. This is done through much reflection and intentional development.
IV. Communicate Effectively
Human beings use several ways to communicate – most of these channels are ineffective and impersonal. In a world where people constantly “communicate”, connection is often left out yet it is the most vital objective.
V. Customize Your Approach
Adjusting to different personalities and addressing their concerns are keys to delivering appropriate service.
VI. Create Value & Complement Your Customer
Adding value will spell the difference between losing and retaining your customer (i.e. your co-workers’ goodwill, your partner’s loyalty, etc.).
