This web-based customer service course focused on skills for handling difficult interactions will:
Explain why customers can be difficult.
Introduce a de-escalation model.

Suggest communication techniques for calming upset customers.
Difficult service situations are something few service providers look forward to addressing. Yet most people working with others will eventually encounter someone who is unhappy for some reason. During this hands-on virtual training course, participants will explore the reasons customers become upset, practice rapport building, discuss communication styles, review trigger words, work through a de-escalation model, and talk about strategies for managing stress.

“I have never attended D&I training before and didn’t know what to expect. This exceeded my expectations. It wasn’t boring. It was timely and relevant. D&I can be a sensitive topic with some and I felt like the approach here brought people along with being judgmental or condemning anyone.”
Training Participant, ICBA
