It’s no fun being on the receiving end of a frustrated angry shouting caller who just had a bad customer experience and is out to get his/her revenge, particularly when the caller’s issue was not even your fault in the first place. This one-day program will help you teach call center agents a simple but powerful 3 step process. Using this process, agents will be able to calm angry callers down regain and maintain control of the call, and handle the situation confidently and professionally. Agents will be able to diffuse the angry caller’s strong emotions, bring the focus back to the issue, and concentrate on working together collaboratively to resolve his/her problem.
