Managing and exceeding your customers’ expectations by recognising behaviours
We all want to provide the best levels of customer service to exceed all expectations. However, this is not always possible if instructions, requirements or procedures have not been explained properly or made clear from the outset. The end result usually causes a lot of inconvenience to customer and business, all due to simple miscommunication, misunderstanding or misinterpretation. Therefore, it is vital to ask the right questions, at the right time, in the right manner and check for understanding before proceeding any further.
Being able to read between the lines and recognise your customer’s behaviour is sometimes all it takes to turn a problem into a solution, or a negative into a positive.
Recognising a learning style so that you can adapt your delivery and body language accordingly can be extremely useful in business. Knowing how to communicate with someone when they are an Activist, Theorist, Pragmatist or Reflector will not only help you determine facts quickly and efficiently, it will also help to build your relationship stronger.
