Suggested by one of our Defusing Hostile Customers clients, this LearnBytes Helpcard summarizes a number of defusing skills we have taught people for over two decades. If you buy from this page, you'll be buying the downloadable version which you will receive immediately, and yes, you can print it out at your end!
The Point: We know that civility and reasonableness seem to be less and less common in our society, as people become impatient, and prone to unpleasant or hostile words and deeds. Written by communication expert an author Robert Bacal, Defusing Hostility Helpcard is based on our customer service seminar of the same name. It includes an overview of the principles of defusing hostility and dealing with verbal abuse PLUS a number of verbal techniques and self-control methods. While this card is slanted towards dealing with hostile customers, you will find most of the tactics can be used in any difficult situation.
Here's what's included:
Usage: This card is useful for individuals who have a good deal of hostility directed at them, since it teaches some important defusing hostility techniques. It can also be used as a reminder, kept by workstations, to help employees remember defusing techniques. Some of our seminar customers have purchased this card to reinforce the seminar outcomes.
