How do they do it? How can you do it? Customer Service Training 101 shows you how to equip your entire service team with the critical information and powerful techniques they need to handle both everyday service functions and extraordinary circumstances.

• Build dynamic relationships by developing trust, establishing rapport, and making customers feel valued

• Handle difficult customers and situations professionally, creating win-win situations and positive outcomes
