  • Walmart said, “When I needed soft skills and call controls eLearning modules for our Walmart.com customer care agents, it quickly became apparent that Myra’s materials were the gold standard.” And Carlson Hotels Worldwide said, I really do love your webinars, Myra. They are very well done and extremely beneficial. I always find little helpful hints in your information.”
  • I have gathered up all of the best de-escalation and call control content from my live, full-day de-escalation workshops…the ones I deliver to companies like Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Frito-Lay and Vera Bradley  – and neatly packaged it in a high-impact 60-minute brand-new live webinar training.

Escalations are time-consuming and frustrating for everybody, even for customers. I know you don’t want your customers to escalate. Share this video training with your team and your people will walk away knowing exactly how to pre-empt an escalation.

 

Hi Myra, your training yesterday was fantastic. I was even able to apply your de-escalation techniques on my 2-year-old son and it worked like magic. He was having a fit to go to bed and I used your right-brain-left-brain technic. I was able to move him to his left brain by asking the color of his 3 favorite characters and he immediately calmed down and cuddled in bed with me. I thought you would appreciate the feedback 😉 Thank you.
