Tips & Co. #346 - Dealing with threats

A threat is a declaration of an intention to cause physical harm. The threat could be personal (e.g. a punch) or addressed to the organization (e.g. a bomb). Wanting to talk to your superior, writing a complaint or calling the local news is not a threat. It is a right the client has.

People who make threats often do carry them out. Every organization/department should have a security policy in place which outlines how to behave and report a threat, to ensure the safety of employees.

Tips & Co. #341 - What is a Culture of Care in customer service?

A culture of care and service is created by instigating people to inspire each other and encouraging leadership within.

Where people believe in what they do, and do what it takes. Where people take a stance with boldness and grit.

A culture of care and service is a mindset that is hard to create but that lasts. It's tarnished by shortcuts and by inattention, and nurtured by constant training, investment and care.

Tips & Co. #336 - Be careful how you train your customers

If you frequently run last-minute sales, specials or promotions, don't be surprised if your customers stop buying things in advance. You're training them to wait.

If you announce things several times, getting louder each time, don't be surprised if your customers ignore the first few announcements. You've trained them to expect reminders.

If you don't offer your customers quality service until they complain, don't be surprised if your customers are difficult. You’re training them to kick and yell in order to get good service.

The way you engage with your customers trains them on what to expect from interactions with you.

Tips &Co. #326 - How to Respond to a ‘Thank You’

When a customer thanks you for your services, avoid responding with “no problem” or “no worries”. Although your intention is good, some customers may get offended. They may wonder why there would be a problem if the task is simply part of your job? Are you implying the customers need could potentially be a hassle or an inconvenience?

Here are a few alternatives for a successful exchange of appreciation:

  • • “You’re very welcome.”
  • • “It’s my pleasure.”
  • • “I’m happy to help.”

Words matter. Choose them carefully, especially when acknowledging a “thank you.”

Tips & Co. #321 - The Power of Using Your Customer’s name

Dale Carnegie said that “a person's name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.”

A study published in Brain Research magazine, shows that certain parts of our brain light up when we hear our own name. It prompts specific and unique responses in our minds.

When you need to recapture the attention of your customer, or get back into the conversation, the best way is by using the customer’s name. We are conditioned from birth to respond to our own name. You’ll get your customer’s full attention and he will tend to listen more closely.

But be careful not to use it too often. If overused, it can come across as insincere and condescending,
