Sometimes service delivery does not go well, which can leave customers disappointed, frustrated, or worst of all: angry. Successfully managing these types of situations is a key skillset for parking operations team members. What to say – and how to say it – can make the difference between de-escalating a situation or making it worse.
Our experienced speakers will share practical steps that parking managers and frontline employees can take to successfully avoid a conflict situation, and how to de-escalate one when it arises. Whether you're new to your role or a seasoned industry veteran, join us to learn new techniques that put you in the driver's seat regardless of the customer interaction.
In this webinar we will:
- Discuss listening and communication techniques in conflict situations;
- Describe how to introduce de-escalation tactics to manage challenging customer service situations; and
- Recognize the role body language plays in de-escalation situations.
This is a one-hour session with 45-50 minutes of presentation and remaining 10-15 minutes for interactive Q&A with attendees.
Participants in this webinar will qualify for 1 continuing education (CE) hour towards the CPP designation.
