Topics Covered

Keeping Customers Informed

One of the most critical ways to support your customers is to keep them informed. Think about it, no doubt you are a customer for someone else. As customers, we want to know what's going on. We want to know the progress of things and want to receive status updates. When we are left with little to no information, we become worried, unsure or irritated. We begin not to trust the individual or company delivering the product or service.

This course will help you think about your customers and their communication needs. Depending on the type of work you do and the customers you support, the level of communication required will be different. The key to great customer service is communication. When we keep our customers informed on the information they need, they are more likely to communicate well with you, will be more satisfied, and will be loyal customers for a long time.

Work can be really fun and exciting when you get the opportunity to be creative and try some of your own ideas. Even if it's not your own idea, the creativity and energy that is generated when new ideas are discussed and considered is exciting. It's fun to think about how a change could impact you personally, the team, your customers, or even the company.

Yet the challenge each of us face is to maintain good judgment when considering new ideas. We don't want to get swept away in the excitement and do something that won't benefit others or could have a negative impact. Instead, you should always consider the pros and cons of any suggestion to determine if it's truly worth taking forward.
