Attracting a new customer is a difficult and expensive process. Once acquired, keeping a customer requires employees dedicated to nurturing the relationship and building trust. Warren Buffett famously said, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.” Losing a valued customer because of poor service is beyond regrettable. How can you avoid this costly mistake?
The California Corporate College delivers customer service training programs that are designed to empower your employees with the skills needed to provide the highest-level customer service. Our cutting-edge training consists of 10 workshops or modules taught by highly-credentialed instructors.
The Customer Service Training Program is Composed of the Following 10 Modules:
- Communication in the Workplace. Communication is a key to customer service success. To best serve both our internal and external customers, we must understand what they want, when they want it, why they want it and what their expectations are. This course covers verbal and nonverbal communication as well as superior listening skills. Create and Manage Files and Online Services. Students will gain experience with account sign-in, & cloud storage.
- Essential Customer Service Skills. Explore key skills and attitudes necessary to effectively meet the customer’s needs. Participants will be introduced to concepts and appropriate techniques for dealing with internal and external customers, enhancing customer satisfaction and ensuring positive communication.
- Team Building. If we don’t have it together with our internal customers, that often translates into poor customer service for our external customers. Working as a team can increase productivity, enhance project management, reduce business conflicts and create superior customer service. Learn the “styles” of your co-workers so you can work together better.
- Attitude in the Workplace. Having the right attitude has a positive impact on the workplace and our interactions with our customers. Explore how attitudes at work positively and negatively affect customer service, the organization’s image, productivity, and employee retention.
