Key Point #1: Calm Down
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Discuss In a business situation, why is it ineffective to tell a customer to calm down? What are a few of the responses you would likely offer when you’re frustrated and someone tells you to “CALM DOWN?” What does the phrase: “Life is a series of roles” mean? In the program, Jessica sidetracked the conversation by telling the customer to calm down. Why is that like throwing gasoline on a fire?
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Telephone Doctor® Prescription Expect the opposite to happen. Customers don’t like being told to “Calm Down.” Focus effort on solving the problem.
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Key Point #2: Can I Be Honest With You?
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Discuss What are the ramifications of saying to a customer: “Can I be honest with you?” What are similar frustrating responses as: “Can I be honest…” which we should eliminate? Is there ever an appropriate time when it’s okay to use these killer words?
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Telephone Doctor® Prescription Avoid this common credibility buster. Considered social noise. Customers expect the truth.
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Key Point #3: No Problem
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Discuss Where did the killer words “No Problem” and “No Worries” originally come from? Why do some people find these words offensive? When customers appreciate the service they’ve received and say “Thank you” it’s okay for customer service representatives to respond back by saying “No problem, that’s my job.” Is this accurate? True or False What words can replace these killer words?
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Telephone Doctor® Prescription “No problem” is perceived as dismissive to customers. “You’re Welcome” is the gold standard for customer service providers.
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Key Point #4: Our Computers Are Slow
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Discuss What mental pictures are created when you hear these words? Name a few of the occasional drawbacks/challenges at your organization. Why does telling the truth to a customer regarding operational problems serve no purpose?
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | There is no value in sharing negative information. Offer solutions not excuses. Telephone Doctor® Prescription
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Key Point #5: What’s Your Name Again?
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Discuss Why do people sometimes ask these killer words: “What’s your name again?” What are the four steps recommended, which are ‘less abrasive’ to get a name – when you’ve missed it? What are similar killer words we’ve heard that are just as abrasive?
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Telephone Doctor® Prescription When you’ve missed the name, regroup. Apply the four step technique to smoothly gather the name. 1.Acknowledge Request 2. Apologize 3. Tell the Truth 4. Reintroduce Yourself and Politely Gather Name
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Key Point #6: Yes, BUT…
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Discuss In the customer service world the word “BUT” is thought of as the BIG ERASER. What do customers think when this killer word is said? Why does the Telephone Doctor call these killer words: “Yes, BUT…” – THE TWO STAGE NO? Name a few buffer phrases, which will smooth/soften our verbiage and replace “Yes, but…”
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Telephone Doctor® Prescription State the customer’s options. Avoid this “Two Stage No.”
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Key Point #7: Sorry, That’s Our Policy.
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Discuss We’ve all heard it! Think back to an experience when you were told by a business, “Sorry, That’s our policy.” How did you feel? In most cases, an employee is simply stating a policy, rules or regulations as an explanation. So what’s wrong with restating company information back to your customers? What other forms of “Sorry, That’s our policy” also alienate customers?
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Telephone Doctor® Prescription Customers aren’t interested in your company’s policies. Look for solutions to the problems. Exceptions can sometimes be made to prevent alienating customers.
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Key Point #8: You Don’t Understand
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Discuss What are some of the reasons customers don’t understand directions offered by employees? Why isn’t it effective to repeat the same directions over again to a customer that doesn’t understand? What can you say to bridge the communication gap and replace these killer words?
© Telephone Doctor, Inc. | Telephone Doctor® Prescription It’s our job to explain better. Simplify the information and take responsibility.
