You’re a host, making any caller feel comfortable and at home with your company.
You’re a teacher, patiently answering the same questions repeatedly and always showing concern and courtesy.
You’re a detective, hunting down information about products, services, prices and everything else people come calling for.
You’re a healer, dealing with callers’ emotions and frustrations, and prescribing remedies. That’s a lot to ask, a lot of pressure to deal with. This seminar will show you how to wear these hats and others with ease.
