Managing Customer Expectations
(06:00 PM - 09:00 PM)
It is a simple truth: customers continue to do business with organizations that deliver on what they promise and who have treated them fairly. You have far more potential to develop long lasting relationships and future business success by managing customer expectations in a consistent way. In this session, you examine ways that you can exceed your customers’ expectations by setting, monitoring, and influencing their expectations. You start by determining their initial expectations and the reasons for each. Then you proactively set realistic expectations with the customer, leverage sure-fire ways to exceed them, and follow an ongoing and consistent process to manage customer expectations in the future.
Managing Conflict in the Workplace
(09:00 AM - 12:00 PM)
Nothing can destroy productivity, derail projects, and damage your reputation faster than workplace conflict. Whether it smolders just beneath the surface or becomes open warfare, conflict can paralyze your group, department, or the entire organization. And once initiated, the unpleasant task of resolving conflicts falls on your shoulders.
Based on the time-tested principles from the new book How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age, this program prescribes the best approaches for effectively dealing with conflicts, so you can resolve issues while maintaining positive relationships. Learn to diagnose conflict before it intensifies, apply appropriate conflict resolution techniques to specific situations, and remain poised when tension is high.
