From the Back Cover
Supervisors and trainers: turn your customer service reps into your company's biggest asset! Because they're out there dealing with the public, frontline workers such as customer service representatives, salespeople, and technicians have the capacity to make a company look very bad...or very good. With the help of this creative collection of training games, you can be sure that your employees can be counted on to give your company a good reputation--employees who...know how to create a rapport with the customer or client; recognize and respond for the needs of every customer; go beyond the expected; bring enthusiasm and a love of what they do to the job. These easy-to-use games take just 15-30 minutes and include reproducible handouts and worksheets. You can use them either to enliven traditional customer service training programs or to add a training component to a regular staff meeting. Customer service training games will help your frontline service workers keep a positive attitude at all times; speak and communicate clearly, both on the telephone and face-to-face; deal with difficult customers, and much more.

5One Stop Shopping for ideas!
By Chaleigh
As a corporate trainer, I'm constantly looking for ideas to "wake up" my students. I decided to get this book sight unseen on a whim (hey, the price was right!). Wow! I'm happy to say that this book has not only gotten students to wake up but to look forward to the next game!

This book provides the instructions for the game, the scenario of when to use it, and if appropriate, handouts & overheads!

Each game is timely and useful..... no fluff here! I'm now designing a 2 day training session with nothing but customer service games to prove that learning can be fun!

You won't be disappointed in this one!

5Customer service is for everyone!
By Anne S. Headley
How can you inspire and rejuvenate your workforce? For supervisors who need to motivate their teams to provide excellent customer service, or for trainers in the workplace, this under-$20 book will be welcome.

As a career counselor, I deal with people who are burned out and depressed by their work situations. By feeding clients manageable exercises that they can take back to work, I can see creativity born of empowerment that can make a difference. Even if/when they decide to change jobs, accomplishment in customer service are those which the new employer will want to hear about.

Addressing the dynamics of employees dealing with both internal and external customers, there are many ten-minute exercises, appropriate for new employee orientation, warm-ups for staff meetings, or launches for all-day training times.

Carlaw and Deming have done a fine job of providing practical hints and easy-to-reproduce hand-outs without overloading the reader with theory.
