Fully Customisable Training Course Material: Description

"In business, you don't get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate."

Chester L. Karrass

As part of a busy business lifestyle, we spend a large amount of our time interacting with others, in particular with our customers. Keeping them happy is as critical as understanding their needs and concerns. It is well known that a large amount of time of an office worker is spent in meetings, a large portion of which is dealing with colleagues and customers. As a result it is quite critical for anyone to improve their customer management skills and be able to handle more senior customers as their skills are improved and get better results.

In this course participants will be introduced to main aspects of managing customers in meetings. These include subjects such as establishing rapport, handling meetings, negotiating, body language and so on. For example, what if your client uses a dominant body position in a meeting room and continuously accuses you of missing deadlines? How should you reply? What if your client does not deliver on his promises and doesn’t understand the impact of his negligence on your team? How do you get him to correct his behaviour, without making him feel embarrassed? Many similar situations such as these are explored in detail in this course.

There are plenty of educational and entertaining exercises designed to help the delegates put the theory into practice. The idea is that participants should learn the skills during the course by using the new concepts they have learned in controlled exercises and role plays. This is known to increase the retention rate and is an ideal method to learn rapidly with minimum effort.

In this highly practical course participants will learn:

The Philosophy Behind Meeting Skills Training Course

This course primarily deals with customers and meetings. Many of daily interactions in an office are carried out in meeting with clients, customers, colleagues and managers. This course is designed to train the delegates to master the art of inter-personal communication in meetings.

Many office workers learn this skill on the job. Right from day one when they join a new company, they are invited to meetings and they simply observe and copy the behaviour of others in their future meetings. After all, they take others’ behaviour as the norm. However, a company culture set by socially dominant people may not be the most efficient way to handle customers. Bad habits can creep in and soon customers may start to turn away from the organisation. A systematic course on how to handle such meetings can greatly help people to understand the intricate psychological aspects of such encounters and maximise their gain.

customer meetings

This course contains many case studies and practicals that help the delegates to practice handling different situations under the supervision of a trainer. Course notes and exercise sheets contain all the information a trainer needs to use to guide the delegates. Workbooks contain detailed reference material useful for both the trainer and the delegates. Course guidelines, recommended reading, etc. further help trainers to quickly familiarise themselves with the course.

As with all courses from Skills Converged, you have the flexibility to edit and modify the content as you wish and integrate it with your own content.
