Customer Service Training

Programs To Meet Your Needs

When experience counts, Elaine has firsthand knowledge and unique techniques of what it takes to make Customer Service Training stick that will put your organization far ahead of your competition. She works with those put in charge to make things happen and co-develops metrics, identifies top priorities that get to the root of customer service problems and designs and delivers customized Customer Service Training programs distinctly for you. If Elaine uncovers something outside of the training scope when she designs and delivers, she will provide summaries and recommendations.

Customer Service Training should not be a “band aid” solution. It should be integrated into an organization’s goals and ensure that key messages and brand are aligned. A thorough training needs analysis is completed, often taking hours of interviews with key people and industry research before the customized course outlines and learning objectives are decided upon. If you are ready to transform your teams into Customer Service crusaders, contact Elaine now to see how we can help.

In our Leading Customer Service course that will be customized for you, we look at current skill gaps as told to us by your leadership team during our needs analysis.

We follow a five-step Training Design process that includes: a thorough training needs analysis; content and data gathering with subject matter experts; design and development of all materials; production and implementation.

Our clients have a choice of whether to retain our services for facilitation, or purchase programs complete with leaders’ guides, where we “Master Train” trainers in-house to deliver quality programs. All programs are customized to meet the specific goals and skill gaps identified through our consultation and in our partnered approach with our clients. All training design course outlines and objectives are decided upon and approved by the client before the training design begins. We run pilot sessions and then revise as necessary to ensure complete success with our programs.
