Essential Telephone Skills and Techniques, Learn how to handle callers with warmth and style, even the difficult ones!
In business and in leisure, we are all expected to deal with other people over the phone. When we aren’t having an ‘in person’ conversation, and we aren’t getting eye contact, it’s easy to forget some of the simple etiquettes which is important for a positive exchange. In fact, if the only part of your communication is verbal, it’s sometimes the case that we misinterpret information, we feel irritated at the miscommunication, we get distracted by other factors in the vicinity, and misheard words and instructions.
This can lead to poorly handled conversations. In professional terms, this could translate to missed business, unhappy customers, lost sales, wasted opportunities for sales, badly handled messages being taken, incorrect spellings…. and I could go on.
Not to mention the bad temper, feelings of frustration and eventual low review of your business or company if we get the call-handling wrong.
