Teamwork is essential to getting work done and seeing desired results. Increasing team effectiveness means clarifying goals, identifying roadblocks and learning to effectively communicate amongst team members.

Service That Sells

Selling is becoming an increasingly important part of the frontline customer service representatives’ job. But few representatives have formal training. Our program helps Customer Service professionals develop the skills, knowledge and motivation they need for cross-selling and up-selling.

No matter what business you are in, who your customers are, or how large your business is, the fact is that everyone would like to increase their revenue without increasing the investment. Numerous companies have discovered a simple cost effective way to do this. A solid service that sells training program for service representatives has proven to pay dividends in the areas of:

  • Increased revenue
  • Employee satisfaction
  • Customer retention
  • Migrating your contact centre to a profit centre

Most sales people would agree that one of the biggest challenges is sales is getting contact with the customer. Your service representatives hear from your customers every single day. Imagine leveraging the customer contact to deliver the exceptional service and having an opportunity to educate and sell to the customer.

Less than 19% of service representatives like to sell, up-sell or cross sell. Cross-selling and up-selling can be valuable business tools, but many customer service professionals are reluctant to add these tools to their repertoire because of the stigma often associated with selling and the lack of formal sales training.

This program is designed to effectively overcome this reluctance and to uncover the realities of providing service and myths behind selling. We guide participants in understanding and being prepared for the transition from service to sales.

Conflict Resolution

Have you ever been in a conflict that you wished you could have handled better? We have all experienced the stress that comes from having unresolved conflicts with our co-workers. Conflicts that are ignored or resolved badly don’t go away – they cause people to feel resentful and to avoid each other. The effects on an organization are a loss of productivity, absenteeism and high turnover.

Conflict comes about from differences – in needs, values and motivations. Sometimes it is through these differences that we complement each other, but sometimes these differences result in conflict. Conflict is not a problem in itself – it is what we do with it that counts.

It is important that we do something because whether we like it or not, conflicts demand our energy. In fact, an unresolved conflict can call on tremendous amounts of our attention. We all know how exhausting an unresolved conflict can be. It is not always easy to fix the problem but a great energy boost can come when we do. This program teaches you the techniques for proper conflict resolution that will leave you feeling satisfied and content.
