Every friend of mine has a story (or a dozen) about crappy customer service. Have you ever noticed that when the level of customer service goes above and beyond, it is news-worthy?!
You can find administrative courses on any Office product, setting up travel arrangements, creating team building projects but I’d never seen a course on customer service for administrative professionals. I’m not just referring to call center staff– they are in a very tough class of their very own. I’m talking about what are the keys to defining superb customer service from an administrative professional?
I’ll fill you in on the back story to what prompted me to develop this session when we meet on Day 2 of Executive Secretary Live. In the meantime, I hope you’ll think about how YOU define great customer service. What does it look like, to you?
Here’s a suggested text to consider written by Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval. The Power of Nice: How to Conquer the Business World with Kindness (2006). [It is one of my go-to books and I believe it’s available for Kindle and Nook.]
