Current research indicates that losing a customer can cost a business over $50,000 in that relationship's lifetime value. When you work with difficult customers, you can't choose how they will act. You can only decide how you will act or react. We will explore three strategies in this session to enhance emotional intelligence and self-awareness that can be used with every customer contact. These skills can be leveraged to reduce churn, work with difficult customers, and improve strained relationships to retain your loyal existing customers.
