The reception perception
“Everyone thinks of changing the world but nobody thinks of changing themselves.” Leo Tolstoy
Reception professionals can be subject to limiting perceptions about their role, which can create less-than-wonderful reactions and responses from those they are trying to serve – this course identifies how to create new ones.
This course seeks to develop understanding about the reception perception and how professionals can move beyond this through their service behaviours. We aim to heighten the skills and awareness of reception personnel in order to strengthen the effectiveness of the role and develop the customer or service user experience.
Participants will explore and develop understanding around:
- The role of the reception professional today
- The reception perception – barriers to the role
- Reception communication skills – questioning skills, listening and telephone behaviour – developing service at the reception desk
- The competence and care balance – customer/user expectations today
- Handling different customer groups: external and internal customers as appropriate
- The reception professional’s role in business development if appropriate
- Handling feedback and issues.
Who should attend?
Everyone who is in a customer- or service-user-facing role in the reception area.
