Workplace Relationship Strategies – Dealing with Different Types of People

Integral to the success of building any team or relationship is accepting and understanding the fact that people are different, and therefore need to be treated differently. The key to building successful workplace relationships depends on an ability to identify the differences in people and then treat them accordingly.

This session will help participants identify different behavioral styles, isolate their own preferred style, and learn how to communicate appropriately with each behavioral pattern. Learning to deal appropriately with different behavioral styles makes it easier to establish trust, credibility, and rapport with a counterpart, resulting in more open, honest and tension-free relationships.

Improving Internal Customer Service

Most employees understand the importance of providing great external customer service, however, few understand the necessity for providing quality internal customer service. Without each employee treating others within the organization with the same care and respect as they would show a customer, it is impossible to maintain a high level of external service. In order to achieve levels of service that create loyalty among customers, a high level of service and support must exist inside the organization. This program focuses on building the necessary skills to provide extraordinary internal customer service.

Because customer service is one of today’s most important business assets, this customer service training session is for anyone who has, or is responsible for, internal or external customer contact.
