Dave RichardsonThis Simple Trick Can Defuse Angry Clients Or Employees Resist raising your voice. Published 2 years agoon January 19, 2018By INSTORE Staff Instore February 2018 Issue Share Tweet TIP: Don’t Fight Fire With FireWHY IT IS TRUE: An irate customer or even an employee can quickly disrupt the professional activities in your store.PLAN OF ACTION: Resist raising your voice. Move the upset individual from the showroom into your office. Close the door, ask them to please sit in a chair, and pull up a chair yourself. Rather than trying to compete with them with an argument, start by asking serious open-ended questions. This will begin to get the individual sharing their anger. By leaning forward in your chair, you will convey your concern and sincerity. Maintain eye contact at all times. Rather than giving an ultimatum, provide them an opportunity to resolve the problem themselves. When the flame is extinguished, shake their hand and move on.Related Topics:INSTORE February '18Sales Truths click to Comment(Comment)Up NextThis Simple Thing is Guaranteed to Make a Customer Feel GoodDon't MissThe Neatest Trick You’ve Ever Seen for Selling a Watch INSTORE Staff Over the years, INSTORE has won 80 international journalism awards for its publication and website.
