The Four Pillars of Customer Service
About This Session:
A real, practical look at customer service filled with stories and examples as we examine the 4 pillars of exceptional Customer Service—the Experience, Relationships, Reputation, and Problem solving/solutions. In addition, we will outline and discuss the 10 basic customer service behaviors—from our attitude to how we are with each other (the internal customer) as well as the occasional "difficult customer." Thought provoking and fun, we can put this customer service knowledge to work for us today.
