Customer Service--Can't Live With It and Can't Live Without it!
Meet with the author of ASTD's publication Ten Steps to Successful Customer Service. In a high tech world, we need a personal touch, a bit of kindness and compassion to sooth our spirits and motivate us to keep doing our best. Maxine Kamin gives an overview of how to do this with skills that can be reinforced or taught. It's a tough economy. Great customer service is more critical than ever, and it almost seems like a lost art. It isn't! Trainers, managers, and executives can learn tips to establish a positive culture, one in which people care about each other and their customers. Learn how to reconnect to your mission, define great service for your organization, form great relationships, build trust, use the law of attraction, solve problems, recover from mistakes gracefully, give yourself and your customers a break, keep it cool when things get hot, and be your own best customer.
