Get 5 Best Practices to Boost Your Customer Listening
Could your customer service be improved? Do your associates:
  • Inspire customer loyalty?
  • Build proactive customer relationships?
  • Deliver the customer experience you intend?

Sometimes, you already know your associates need to improve their customer service. Other times, it becomes clear after we conduct a customer service evaluation, or a satisfaction survey.

Either way, to deliver customer service that is truly compelling, you need workshops that set standards, provide examples, and level-up performance with concrete tools!

Takeaways | Your Staff will Learn How To:

  • Create peak experiential moments
  • End their interactions on an uptick
  • Empathize with a wide range of customers
  • Communicate effectively in a broad range of situations
  • Position customer service so that it demonstrates your brand

With Workshops You Have Options:

Whether it’s a 55-minute workshop for 200 or a half-day coaching session for just a few, we start by establishing a foundation that ties customer experience principles to specific examples. From there, we share ideal interactions (Model Answers) and conclude with at least one interactive exercise.

Group workshops, 1-on-1 sessions, and virtual webinars are our usual formats. However, we customize our workshops, so ask if you have another format in mind.

Part 1: Build the Foundation
  • Share the core qualities of customer experience.
  • Show the 4 factors common to all service interactions.
  • Explore different personas and situations–and their impact on service.
  • Deconstruct examples of good and bad customer service.
  • Brainstorm interactions associates find most challenging.
Part 2: Demonstrate Model Answers
  • Prior to our workshops, we’ve analyzed how associates engage with customers. And we’ve put a ‘director’s cut’ on select calls, emails, and chats to showcase successes and missed opportunities.
  • Where your customer service needs to be improved, we develop new, better answers and explanations. (We’ve written guides containing hundreds of model answers—and we have yet to find content that is too complex or arcane for our approach.)
  • Model Answers are more than scripted responses. They show your associates what great customer service looks like in specific customer situations.
  • With the standards set, associates can improvise and develop their own unique responses while staying true to your brand objectives.
  • Because Model Answers re-work the details of specific scenarios, they are the tool that most dramatically improves customer service.
Part 3: Conduct Interactive Exercises
  • Exercises start with co-critiquing interactions to raise the bar on customer service.
  • We brainstorm ways to incorporate the Model Answers into customer service.
  • We tie the Model Answers back to the principles through role-playing, unpacking word choice, and exploring pacing and other cues.

The quality of your customer service probably impacts your sales—it certainly impacts how customers perceive your brand. That’s why improving customer service is one of the best investments you can make!
