Telephone Skills – 5 Steps

A tried and tested 5-step process to help practices deliver an excellent customer experience over the telephone.

5 Steps Telephone Skills

What does this course cover?

The first workshop session looks at the why and how of client communication over the telephone – why it matters and how to get it right. We cover a range of key topics over two and a half hours:

 

  • What is the customer experience? What does a ‘good’ and ‘bad’ experience feel like?
  • Understanding the customer journey to and through the practice
  • The Peak-End model of memory creation
  • What is the Zero Moment of Truth and why does it matter?
  • Using ‘listen, empathise, personalise’ to create an action plan
  • Introducing the 5 Steps

 

Delegates then spend a week or so reflecting on learnings and refining their own practice, before returning for a second interactive online session.

In the second workshop we focus on what you need to do in order to deliver a consistently excellent telephone customer experience:

 

  • Reviewing studies evidencing how choice of words is crucial
  • Introducing the concept of recipient design, tailoring conversations according to the differing styles and needs of clients
  • Looking at a range of common communication models
  • Breaking down the 5 Steps in detail, with practical examples of how to implement each

 

This two-stage embedding of learning makes the 5 Steps Telephone Skills workshop powerful, memorable and unique.

Small group, maximum of 8 delegates, total 5 hours CPD – interactive style workshop.

This workshop has two separate parts, each delivered via Zoom a week apart.

 

You will need a device with good sound, camera and a mic.

Alison has been in Bulgaria with Small Animal Vet colleagues from across Bulgaria

It’s great to meet and chat with folks who care for patients in other countries and we all learn something from this knowledge sharing

The local beer is very good and much needed after 4 hours of lectures about caring for people with pets to get to good patient outcomes

It’s also quite a bit warmer than the U.K. usually is !

So big thank you to the BASAV for the invitation and hospitality and thank you to the translators for making it possible

And thank you to BSAVA and WSAVA for enabling attendees to access the invaluable BSAVA Manuals on line…. Make sure you look at the Practice Management one - (needs a refresh Carole Clark and Marion Chapman !)

So it’s a been a busy few weeks for Team Onswitch

And we took a break from social space as quite frankly we had stuff to do!

The world has opened up and all the conferences and projects and research are all happening at the same time !

So here is a taster of the recent congresses from around the world

It’s been good to be face to face again and it has added to the virtual connections, so a new world of fusion learning and debate

Learning is now more accessible with online and remote formats, so made us think about what is the point of an attendance event?

Discussed today at the Proveto Utrecht Vet event - great fun as always

So if a speaker ( in this case Alison ) is actually there ,what is the reason to go and listen versus doing a webinar or online lecture ?

Our view is it’s about the stuff you didnt know you needed to know - the new thoughts, ideas and the deep meaningful and controversial stuff

Face to face means we can debate in a safe space those topics that are never in the webinars as you can’t get the deep connection to robustly debate issues

After all what’s the point of hearing the same stuff again and again and again

Face to face is more focussed and stimulates debate and questions

Well that’s our view … what’s yours?

Why attend an event at all?

That time of year
Strawberries massive crop so jam is the answer
Repurposing of jam jars every year
And jam will last for ages

Good question
Culture
Hidden curriculum
We change the world when we change what we do = need to admit we need to polish ,flex ,modify and change a few words
Need feedback loops
Few vets like feedback loops, essential for awareness raising and change
