Diffusing the Angry Client

This six-step program was created using data from the hotel, restaurant, and airline industries. It is a systematic approach to dealing with angry or complaining clients in almost any situation.

Jedi Mind Tricks

Calling on classic techniques in effective communication, persuasion, and negotiation, this session helps technicians and CSRs motivate and provide feedback to their teams. Active listening, deep acting, and strategic planning all come into play when we set out to affect the behavior of organizational superiors. By considering these skills in-depth, our goal is to develop usable plans and techniques for initiating and carrying out conversations that matter.
