Dealing with the general public on a daily basis normally involves minimum stress. However, there may be times when customer or client concerns escalate into a stressful or potentially explosive situation, for both the staff and the customer.
This course provides workers with an overview of the stresses and pressures that exist when dealing with customers who are volatile and/or hostile. Participants will develop a broad skill set to cope with these situations and will also learn practical communication and coping techniques to handle the situation and enhance personal performance.
Video clips are included to illustrate key concepts, while quizzes throughout help to measure and encourage learning.
Note that the course does not cover robbery or physical assault. These topics are addressed in the Dealing with Robbery e-course.
