GREAT skills – The GREAT customer service ‘masterclass’

An interactive half-day, face-to-face workshop or 90-minute virtual session

Practice makes permanent; practice only makes perfect if your people are practising the right things. Research shows that we quickly forget learning if we make no attempt to practise and retain it. This Masterclass gives your people the opportunity to revisit, refresh and refine their GREAT Customer Service Skills so that they are consolidating what they have learned so far, practising what good looks like and building greater proficiency in having GREAT customer interactions.

How will it help?

This workshop will help your people to:

  • Refresh their knowledge of the GREAT Customer Service Skills
  • Celebrate and share successes achieved so far in applying their skills
  • Explore and discuss challenges they face in mastering a skill
  • Deep dive and practise the skills that are they finding more difficult to master
  • Practise an end-to-end customer interaction and receive feedback and coaching
  • Commit to action to further build upon their skills on their return to their role

Who should attend?

Anyone in a customer-facing role who has attended the GREAT customer service workshop.

What happens in it?

A highly interactive and practical session, using real scenarios relevant to your people in their role. Your people will revisit, refresh and refine their GREAT customer service skills based on how they have applied their learning in their customer interactions since their GREAT customer service workshop.
