Telephone Customer Service-Basic and Advanced CSR Skills - Training Video
Help your Customer Service Reps to excel! Even your best employees will become better on the phone after watching this video.
If you need a heavy-duty video that covers all aspects of telephone selling and customer service, this is your tape. The scene is a call center. Viewers watch as this very challenging job is broken into ten skill sets:
1. Listening effectively.
2. Extending common courtesy.
3. Avoiding the wrong impression.
4. Using the customer's language.
5. Gathering customer information.
6. Satisfying the angry customer.
7. Managing technology.
8. Writing effective email.
9. Preparing a mental script.
10. Closing the conversation.
Each of these skill sets is explained carefully with examples, and useful hints. For skill set #1, viewers learn that there are fourteen obstacles to effective listening, including:
- Hearing what you want to hear
- Thinking of what you're going to say next, and
- Making assumptions instead of asking questions.
For skill set #6, viewers learn six ways to satisfy angry customers, including:
- Remaining courteous
- Avoiding "the swamp", and
- Apologizing for the customer's dissatisfaction.
Skill set #9 shows telephone reps the power of mental scripting. Viewers learn how to be themselves on the phone even while using preplanned phrases and sentences.
This video is packed with information. Use the whole video as an overview, or create a training session based on just one or two of the skill sets as needed.
