At Eagles Management, we understand that successful businesses rely on satisfied customers. It’s all too easy to lose a good reputation and long-standing customers if your people don’t handle complaints in an effective way. Equally, when complaints arise they provide a great opportunity to turn a customer into a loyal client, if handled well.
In this workshop, participants will discover the secrets to handling customer complaints in a way that builds loyalty and generates additional revenue. They will learn how to demonstrate empathy, communicate in the best way, ask questions to identify issues and enhance the customer’s experience.
