What is the one thing that separates excellent service from average service? A line. No, really—it’s that simplistic. You’ll find excellent service above this metaphorical line and average service below it.
While each business or corporation has its own personal line by which it judges its customer service success, certain behaviors will always go above and beyond the line. Want to learn how you can wow your customers with unrivaled service? Keep reading to see how our Above The Line Training can help.
What Above The Line Service Looks Like
When it comes to delivering Above The Line customer care, our trainers can help you develop a customer-first mindset and a good grasp on things like conflict resolution, empathy, and resiliency.
Exhibiting these types of behaviors does a lot to put customers at ease and creates a “feeling of service” that will impact your relationship with those you serve in a positive light. No matter if a customer is reaching out to you with praise or a complaint, it’s important that you respond with a level of emotional intelligence that builds upon your company’s good reputation and success.
Our Above The Line course focuses on four key skills that are linked to superior service. They include:
- Problem Resolution: Approaching your customer’s request in a consultative, solution-focused manner.
- Customer Care Mindset: Delivering above-average service requires an “all in” mentality, as well as genuine care for your customers.
- Empathy: Harnessing the ability to pick up the emotional cues of others and responding appropriately.
- Resiliency: The practice of bouncing back from a tough customer encounter while simultaneously managing emotions in an effort to respond instead of just react.
Since our training revolves around skill development and real-world application, each Above the Line skill will help give your team members a renewed spirit of service excellence and the tools to deliver better service with each interaction.
