Who should do this course?

Customer Service Professional Skills training course March 2022

The Customer Service Professional March 2022 training course has been designed to help frontline staff who are already working in a role that interacts with customers and has some experience talking to customers (as we will use their current challenges and examples as part of the learnings).

The 3 x 3-hour sessions have been designed to be delivered in a structured manner enabling students to learn and apply their new skills in between the different modules.

The skills we teach are applicable to all industries, products and services!

Typical roles include:

  • Call centre agents (sales or service)
  • Customer service staff
  • Telephone account management
  • Technical support
  • Complaints teams
  • Frontline staff who interact with customers

If you have someone who is new to call centre or customer service work, or they need to upskill in a quicker time period, check out our Customer Service Booster course which is one 3-hour session or the Customer Service Excellence course which is 8 hours of training with global CX expert, Daniel Ord.

What you’ll learn:

The Customer Service Professional March 2022 training course is designed to first influence the psychology of participants to start viewing service from a customer perspective rather than their own internal, operational mindset. Then the call handling model that forms the basis of the program, ‘The 5 Degrees of Customer Experience’, is introduced in a sequenced manner that builds competency and new habits in a staged approach.

We’ve also in included a module to master the skills of handling difficult customers that will not only reduce anxiety in your staff in how to handle those tough situations, but it will help your business by reducing the number of frustrated customers.

There’s plenty of role-playing and practice built in to ensure agents can put their new skills to work with the practice conducted in a safe, fun and welcoming online environment.

At the end of the course, trainees will be provided with a certificate of achievement and most importantly, be empowered with new skills that will help them succeed in their role.

When we started our work with Simon we incorporated his Five Degrees model into our CX framework. This has helped us deliver improved service through via both our own staff and also those with our outsourced partners. Everyone has reaped the benefits from our improved Service Desk experience to Toyota employees that has come from our long-term partnership.

“We weren’t sure what to expect when we switched from the classroom training approach with Five Degrees to an online delivery model. It exceeded all expectations and provided an even better experience for staff as well as enhanced learning outcomes. The structured approach of the 5 Degrees model lends itself extremely well to online facilitation. I couldn’t recommend it more highly!

Course Participants Feedback:

“Thought I would let you know that it is the most outstanding Customer Service course I have ever done! From the videos to the role-plays and the general interaction with the guys. They were both professional and fun. Great work guys. Thanks! – Customer Service Training Participant, TAFE NSW

“It is difficult to come up with one part of the training that was my favourite. The whole thing I believe was one of the most inspiring training sessions that I have done in 11.5 years at Aurora. I’m excited at just how much the Five Degrees approach can improve our customer experience – Customer Service Team Leader Training Participant, Aurora Energy

“I would recommend this training as it was insightful and refreshing. Simon really made us step out of our own perspective and into the customer experience. There were things he covered that I was just wowed by. I’m so used to set scripts and pitches but Simon covered the words to say, voice volume, pauses and how to have conversations that makes the customer comfortable to build trust.” – Customer Service Training Participant, Philip Morris

“WOW OH WOW, I’ve just listened to recordings of three of the coaching sessions Simon did. I’m so excited about our upcoming Training with him. The way he delivers his feedback is awesome and he has some really powerful tips for the guys which simplify things.” – Customer Service Train-the-Trainer Participant, RACT

I had a fantastic learning experience with the half day Journey Mapping course. Shane was our trainer and explained... things thoroughly, used great practical examples and helped through the exercise when needed. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. The group size was not too big so everyone was able to contribute online. I feel confident to 'give a journey map a go' now, thank you. Helenread more

The Introduction to Contact Centre Management is an excellent course for those looking to understand contact centres... from a helicopter view and benchmark their operations. From the fundamental pillars to critical KPIs and performance metrics that underpin almost every contact centre globally, Justin is personable and professional and speaks with authority on a topic he knows intimately.read more

The CX Management Fundamentals course was exceptional, a balanced blend of best in-class examples and theory . Daniel... was the utmost professional, sharing his wealth of knowledge in customer experience and contact centre management. Content was relevant and covered an array of business examples. A course that exemplifies two-way participation (no death by PowerPoint). The diverse group of attendees had the opportunity to share their experiences and knowledge, which was priceless. I highly recommend this course for anyone in the customer experience realm, even beginners like me.read more

The training provided manages to take complex sales strategies and make them easy to understand and implicate in a... sales call. It provides a structure that isn’t stifled by wordy scripts and pitches, and guides consultants towards a successful outcome for both the customer and consultant.This training took efficient, tried and tested sales concepts and expand on them to not only generate higher conversion, but a more positive customer experience.Aside from the training, which was amazing, Simon - the trainer - was a pleasure to work with. He was attentive and showed a real passion and desire to enhance the trainee’s sales expertise.I would recommend CX Group to anyone who will listen!read more
