Customer Service Tip: Learn From Your Client’s Complaints


Listening to complaints, whether they’re reasonable or not, may be a a part of every manager’s job. Sometimes complaints are often overwhelming. However, by taking them without becoming upset with an open mind, we will learn much from our employees’ and customers’ feelings about the workplace.

After all, a complaint is nothing more that an individual telling you that his (or her) needs haven’t been met. As dissatisfied customers, they’re giving us a second chance to correct something that ought to are done properly the primary time around. (In this case the customer happens to be your employee.)

If you hear them patiently and attentively, their complaints will provide you with a warning to a true or potential problem, or tell you of a far better thanks to handle a situation.

We aren’t use, however, to dealing with complaints. We let our emotions rule our thinking usually. Consequently, we let complaints wear us out because we combat the complaint as a private attack on us. it’s not!

The next time you’re faced with an irate employee, here are some steps to consider:

· Try doing something new and different.

· Listen attentively, patiently, and with disposition .

· albeit the complaint seems unreasonable, don’t tell him so. Keep it to yourself.

· Because nobody wants to be accused of being unreasonable, especially if it’s true, admit that he could be right. (The implication is that you simply could also be wrong.)

· Invite him to supply you in his own words an answer to his complaint. Say, for instance , “If you were in my shoes, what would you are doing to correct the situation?” (Be careful to not call his complaint or situation a drag , because doing so might aggravate him to the purpose that he loses his ability to think and express himself clearly.)

· Listen carefully and actively. Read his visual communication .

· Use feedback questions or statements to let him know that you’re trying to know and meet his needs. (Begin responses with statements like, “If I understand you correctly, …”)

When you take the time to concentrate to your complaining customers or employee, you’ll hear what he’s telling you. Then you will be during a better position to show him into a satisfied customer.

Remember: once you maximize your potential, everyone wins. once you don’t, we all lose.
