Customer Service for Call Centers

Learn About the Course
Did you know that the number one complaint from call centers is lack of empathy? 

We understand that a misunderstanding between a potential customer and company representative can be time consuming and/or costly. Both positive and negative interactions influence sales, collections, outcomes and reputation. Our customer service and phone skills training are designed to ensure that every interaction is positive and positions customers to feel heard and valued. 

  • Customers immediately recognize defensive language or insensitive statements about their issue. 
  • During a billing dispute or collections call, customers often report that the agent was condescending
  • Customer surveys reveal that if someone had a bad experience and there are more choices for that product or service, they will move on to another option. 
  • A specific strategy will be demonstrated that teaches how to speak in a melody style that sounds professional, supportive and friendly. 
  • Participants will learn how voice has a role in persuasion and be able to consistently maintain a pleasant-sounding voice for all types of calls.  
  • Participants will then learn the strategy of perspective taking, which is how to consider situations from another point of view. Learning how to meet customers at their level can help bring a call to a positive outcome. 
  • Common defensive language statements will be identified and replaced with positive and motivating comments. 
  • Strategies will be presented to make all calls actionable and in the right direction.

Chapter 1 & 2: The Rhythm and Melody for Amazing Communication Skills

Chapter One- teaches how to speak in a style that is engaging and interesting. People who learn to speak with skilled intonation and perceived as smart and better leaders. Participants will learn a specific strategy for learning how to speak with a more controlled rate of speed, making articulation sharp and crisp and having naturally improved projection. This speaking style is more commanding and enhances leadership qualities. 

Chapter Two- will teach how to use the skill at a more advanced level that will be ideal for delivering presentations, leading meetings, speaking with more persuasion, and connecting with individuals. Other facets of leadership through communication are also taught such as how to pose questions that get you the results you want, common vocabulary words that weakens statements and common bad speech habits will be revealed with strategies on how to eliminate them. 

Chapter 3: Speaking from a Stronger and More Powerful Voice

The second skill is learning how to speak with a stronger and more powerful voice. There is a place in the lower throat where the vocal folds function at their best to produce a voice that is rich and vibrant. This e-learning course teaches that placement while eliminating a thin, high or nasal sounding voice.

Chapter 4: How to Speak with a Diaphragm Breath

The final mechanical skill is diaphragm breathing. Many people speak on a shallow breath or even run out of breath when talking. Speaking from a diaphragm breath will allow for more comfort and better projection. In addition, a full diaphragm breath along with good speech melody creates effective and calm speakers. 

Chapter 5: Customer Service Specific Strategies 

This chapter gets into the specifics on how to make customer services calls more positive, effective and actionable in the right direction. Specific strategies such as “perspective taking”, how to see the customer’s point of view to make a better connection is covered in detail. How to phrase language that sounds kind and non-judgmental and how to kindly educate with next steps is covered with targeted exercises. Finally, how to make all calls feel warm is also addressed. By the end of this course, participants will have improved communication skills and specific strategies to ensure all calls are handled professionally and the customer feels valued.
