Supervisors and the employees they oversee are tasked with providing the first line of customer service for their department. Customer perceptions and experiences are often shaped on these discussions and have a profound effect on whether customers walk away from an interaction with a positive or negative reaction. Interactions handled in a positive manner can turn even the angriest individuals into customers who are cooperative and willing to work through customer satisfaction issues to a positive resolution. Conversely, interactions handled in a negative manner can permanently taint customers who had up until recently enjoyed their relationship with a company. The ability to recognize customer issues, work cooperatively with a customer and find effective solutions to customer service issues are key to maintaining a satisfied client base. Our Customer Service Training for Supervisors teaches these key skills while enabling supervisors to build a service-oriented culture for those they manage.

A fast-paced yet value-driven program, Customer Service Training for Supervisors is a four-hour seminar designed to introduce the central concepts of customer service. These tenets are discussed via lectures, round-table discussions, question and answer sessions and critical role plays that empower participants to put newly learned skills to use. Exercises are audio taped and digitally recorded so as to enable participants to observe their ability to handle customer service issues and understand how modifications in their behavior will allow them to build customer satisfaction. Lessons on customer needs and the drivers that affect individual behavior enable participants to build chemistry and empathize with satisfaction issues. Supervisory tips and techniques allow participants to coach their staff on the steps required to reinforce customer satisfaction during all customer interactions. By the end of Customer Service Training for Supervisors, participants will have learned and practiced key customer service skills and will have the ability to foster a service-oriented culture within their organization.
