7 Soft Skills to Transform Your Customer Experience Over the Telephone

This is the 7-point call strategy I use when my work is to improve the telephone customer experience in a call center.

The lead-in, step 1, gets calls started on a positive note. Steps 2-6 are how to handle the body of the call in a friendly and warm way. The final step, end with a fond farewell, ensures you end calls positively.

If these 7 steps help you in any way, well that makes my day. –Myra

1. Open with a lead-in

“Good morning. Customer Care. This is Penny. How may I help you today?” (with a 🙂 in your voice)

 

2. Convey empathy and/or acknowledge emotions when appropriate

  • “I can understand how frustrating it is when your rental car breaks down.”
  • “I realize how complicated it is to …..”
  • “I cannot imagine how upsetting it is to …..”
  • “I know how confusing it must be when …..”

3. Yield to Callers (Don’t interrupt or over talk customers)

  • Allow customers to finish sentences
  • If you accidentally interrupt a caller, apologize
  • Even when you know within a second or two that the call will need to be transferred, allow the caller to finish their statement before making the transfer

 

4. Bridge into questioning

  • “In order to determine what happened, I will need to ask you some questions.”
  • “Do you mind if I ask you some questions so we can figure out what has happened?”
  • “So I can assist you, may I ask you a few questions?”

5. Speak in complete sentences

Be friendly and conversational and always use a complete sentence:

  • “May I have your zip code please?” –  Not: “Zip code?”
  • “Can I get your last name?” – Not: “Name?”

 

6.  Ask “Is there anything else?”

  • “Ms. Williams, may I help you with anything else?”
  • “May I help you with anything else, Mr. Smith?”
  • “Do you have any additional questions, Mrs. Jones?”
  • “Is there anything else I can help you with today, Mr. Davis?”
  • “Ms. Brown, how else may I help you today?”

7.  End with a fond farewell (include some form of thanks)

  • “Thanks so much for calling us today Julie.”
  • “I enjoyed talking with you, Teresita. I hope you enjoy your new duffle bag.”
  • “Well, if there’s nothing else, all that’s left is for me to wish you a great afternoon! Thank you for calling us today Tammy.”
