The Service Edge --"Customer Relations on the Front-Line for Medical Administrative Staff"

HOW CAN THE SERVICE EDGE HELP? This program will train your service givers to:

  • Appreciate the importance of the customer
  • Recognize the benefits of becoming a better service giver (to the company and themselves)
  • Recognize the critical moments-of-truth in their own job
  • Appreciate the wants and needs that all customers have
  • Accept responsibility for their actions
  • Learn powerful, effective ways to solve customer problems and deal with angry customers and difficult people
  • Practice proven techniques to sharpen people skills and reduce job stress

Through a combination of instruction, self-discovery, individual exercises and group discussion in which your employees gain increased self-insight and a heightened awareness of the customer. Service givers will learn the specific behaviors that produce positive results with customers. Situational practice exercises will allow service givers to apply the concepts and techniques to the kinds of problems they typically encounter.


  •  Benefits of sharpening people skills... why get better?
  • The two parts of every service giver's job
  • Positive and negative attributes of service givers
  • What customers really want
  • Moments of truth, we’re all on stage
  • Listening, the key to understanding customer needs
  • Dealing with the most difficult customers
  • Practicing typical customer situations 
  • Personal action plan for improvement

Participants will integrate their own experience, the experiences of others, and skills learned in class into a set of personal goal statements. Put into practice, these individual commitments, when multiplied by the number of service givers in your company will result in visible improvement in your company's overall level of customer service.
