Course Overview

Customer complaints are not always a sign that something is wrong. They can often provide insight into opportunities for improvement. When handled professionally negative experiences can be salvaged and turned into positive ones. Being able to assess and address customer complaints is key to making this happen. Research suggests customers will continue doing business with you even after a slip-up provided you are able to resolve their problem. In fact in many cases customer satisfaction is higher after a problem has been effectively resolved than if the problem hadn'st occurred at all. This course equips participants with the skills to handle challenging or difficult situations in a way which will increase customer loyalty creating advocates for your brand.
