This workshop was developed to support practice managers and other healthcare professionals in GP practices to develop their skills and confidence to provide excellence in customer service. Our workshops are designed to give delegates a wider message than the conventional customer service programmes.
Through a customer first approach we focus on working with you to develop the qualities for an effective solution – the focus is on your staff, your processes and your business. We will help create a vision of exceptional customer service that you will be able to integrate into the vision and mission of your own practice.
In turn, this will enable your staff to develop and will help you create a customer first culture within the practice – you only get one chance to create a good first impression and in today’s society people have high expectations ‘only the best will do’.
By the end of the workshop delegates will be able to:
- Identify gaps in customer service delivery and areas for improvement.
- Describe and create a vision of Exceptional Customer Service.
- Examine ways to improve internal communication.
- Recognise their own Personality Style and those of their colleagues and customers.
- Enhance awareness of their response to different Personality Types and the effect this can have when dealing with challenging situations.
- Understand the difference between prejudice and discrimination and the importance of a non-judgemental approach.
- Be motivated to ‘walk the talk’ and set their customer service standards even higher.
From the initial meeting with the management team, Gill and Suzy identified our specific training needs and designed an excellent customer service course which exceeded our expectations. The course has enabled the staff to face the everyday challenges of practice life with renewed motivation, confidence and positivity.
Their professional and entertaining style created a relaxed environment fully engaging all those who attended the course. The training has had a lasting impact and made a huge difference to both patients and staff. I would have no hesitation in recommending them, they proved to be great value for money and delivered exactly what we needed.
From our initial meeting with Gill and Suzy they understood our needs and designed an excellent Customer Service course that incorporated personality style awareness. The feedback from our staff has been extremely positive and not only has the training helped their customer service skills it has also improved internal communication and relationships. I would like to thank Gill and Suzy for their professionalism and outstanding work ethics. I would highly recommend them and I hope to work with them again in the near future.
Gill and Suzy worked with the management team in order to design and deliver bespoke training courses. They are extremely energetic, enthusiastic and self-motivated, and were able to swiftly understand and take into account our specific requirements. As a result, the training was well planned, well-structured and tailored to our needs. The courses were professionally run, extremely efficient, relevant and of real value. Gill and Suzy are highly engaging and entertaining facilitators and are able to draw on their vast expertise to engage participants, challenge assumptions and encourage staff to take different perspective on situations.
By the end of the sessions our objectives were well and truly achieved. We are committed to embedding the tools gained from this training into our working practices, the different personality styles are displayed in our offices and we have produced individual and team action plans to build upon the lessons learnt. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to deliver excellent, value for money training and development.
I recently attended the Emotional Intelligence training with Gill and Suzy and found this course one of the best I have ever been onto! It was very interesting and I learnt a great deal about my own personality traits and that of others. There was a fair balance of both group work and independent learning and I came away with a strong sense that I had learnt a lot throughout the day.
Suzy & Gill make a fantastic team. They clearly love their job and play off each other to make the course totally immersive and enjoyable. We learnt a lot and the whole team benefited from the course in so many ways.
