Effective Telephone Skills

Each employee is a salesperson for their company. How you treat each person reflects the culture of your business. During this workshop we will emphasize the desirable personal skills that are needed in any office, such as attitude, posture, sound, words, and expressions. Making a caller or visitor feel at ease is an integral part of any successful encounter. When trust is gained, information can then be shared in a free manner. Learn when to transfer calls, and when to take messages. Use the best techniques to save everyone time. Discover how to interact with rude or angry callers, time wasters and those who simply want proprietary information. Learn to present a professional, polished image to your customers and business associates.
