Managing Customer Confrontations

Did you know that the easiest way to handle irate customers is to stay calm and collected?

Every business aims to delight its customers. However, there may be instances when the product or service offered by the company falls short of the customer’s expectations. Such a situation may lead to undesirable customer confrontations. Though it may not be possible to meet all the demands of a customer, it is possible to manage an irate customer by reaching an amicable solution.

One of the most uncomfortable responsibilities of a customer service representative is dealing with an irate customer. However, the challenge lies with handling the situation delicately to avoid stating or doing anything that can add to the customer’s frustration.

No matter who is to blame, it is always important to follow a few basic principles to improve the situation rather than allowing the situation to deteriorate further.

This course features a solution framework that will enable you to defuse tense situations without incident. This framework comprises a four-step model that you can use with any unhappy or irate customer and build strong customer relationships.
