Are anger, confusion, ignorance, fear, mental health issues, unknown motivations, or a mixture of these on display with that difficult accountholder in front of you or on the phone?
Do you duck and cover, deflect and defer, or step up to resolve (and understand) the problem? Join this timeless webinar to learn more about how to effectively handle difficult people and situations.
AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:
- Determine who is the problem: accountholder, visitor, or a staff member
- Describe the causative factors of the person’s hostility
- Employ best practices during a confrontation
- Explain banking procedures that a person wouldn’t know
- Use cognitive listening to resolve a problem
- Understand the warning signs when a person is about to become volatile
- Design your course of action to resolve a situation
Handling difficult people is one of the hardest situations staff has to manage on a regular basis. This program will review problems frontline staff and management could face during interactions with accountholders and explain ways to cope when things get hostile. People who become upset need to be defused and doing so is not always easy. The most well-meaning intentions could escalate the problem. Join us to learn more about causative factors, warning signs, and the proper use of cognitive listening.
