Cage Your Rage – Dealing with difficult customers – Workshop by Kay Leslie

Crossed arms, heavy sighs, short replies – you know when a customer’s getting frustrated. Worse, these physical signs show they’re losing interest in what you’re saying, and your shot at keeping their business might be fading fast. Dealing with difficult customers can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. With the right attitude and actions you can effectively navigate these tricky customer situations and emerge (hopefully) unscathed. Often, difficult or even angry customers aren’t expressing frustration with you. These emotions are tied to external situations and psychological stimuli.

Why should I book:

Although “the customer is always right,” they may not always be easy to deal with. Learning how to deal with difficult customers is an important step for any person, especially those who work in the customer service industry. Even businesses with the best products and services are bound to have occasional run-ins with angry customers.
Keeping customers happy is a key component of good customer service. While no one likes talking to angry customers, ignoring complaints can have serious consequences for your company. In addition to potentially lowering your profit level, failing to respond to upset customers can create a negative perception of your business that can take years to correct.
To build a positive reputation with consumers, it is important to have properly trained staff who can handle difficult people and resolve customer complaints. So why is it important to learn how to deal with difficult customers?
