WHAT WILL TECHNICIANS LEARN?

Among its many benefits, this workshop will:

  • Help participants recognize that making proactive recommendations for additional products and services is part of the overall service provided.
  • Show the importance of personal credibility (trust) in service success and develop personal action plans to build it.
  • Discuss the role of professional credibility (competence) in the customer’s evaluation of the competence of the service technician, the quality of their work and how to communicate this through on going service delivery.
  • Introduce and practice how to engage the customer in proactive conversations and communicate the value of the recommendation.
