Pronounce words clearly, paying particular attention to word endings and numbers. 4.BE EXPRESSIVE - Let the caller know that their call is important. Use a moderate rate and volume of speech and avoid a monotone delivery; no one wants to feel like they are speaking to a computer. 5.BE CONSIDERATE - DO NOT try to carry on two conversations at once. A caller should not feel he/she is competing for your attention. 6.BE COURTEOUS - Use common courtesy words such as, "Thank you", "Please" and "You're Welcome".
