Course Outline

Understanding Why Difficult Situations Occur and Customers Are Demanding: Sharks in the Tank

While some people are more actual to please than others, it’s often the case that difficult clients aren’t always that way. Typically, “difficult” is the outcome of a chain of events. This introductory talk goes over the most frequent causes of clients getting unhappy, demanding, and difficult to please. The group will talk about potential trigger points, highlight common difficulties, and pinpoint any potential process concerns that need to be handled outside of the session during this section. The remainder of this program will concentrate on steps service providers can do under their control to enhance the customer experience.

The Best PH: Establishing Relationships and Listening

Unless you start on the correct foot, you might make a situation worse rather than create a solution. We will examine the process of developing rapport and the concept of “like likes like” in this course session. Participants will discover how they subconsciously appeal to others’ tastes rather than that of their clients through an engaging exercise. The group will next put into practice strategies that will enable them to adapt and listen to clients of various stripes.

The Filter: Preventing the Relationship from Being Polluted

The majority of us are aware that a careless word might cause trouble. However, if the appropriate words aren’t immediately available when dealing with difficult clients, it’s simple to say the wrong thing. The emphasis of this segment of the curriculum is on word choice, trigger phrases, and maintaining composure and professionalism in any circumstance.

Managing Unreasonable Clients: Catfish, Snails, and Crabs

A few consumers, despite our best attempts to assist them, simply cannot be satisfied, even if the majority of challenging clients are challenging for a reason. This section of the course deals with clients who try to take advantage of the serving company, clients who reject stated policies, norms, and processes, and clients who reject offered remedies.

Just Keep Swimming: Stress Management

Regardless of the provider’s ability to handle the most challenging conditions, dealing with demanding consumers can be exhausting. This project reviews stress-management strategies and action planning as it comes to a close.

Participants in the program will have known variety of strategies for controlling expectations, breaking bad news, handling complaints, and reducing stress during challenging customer contacts
