ESSENTIALS OF MANAGING THE SERVICE RELATIONSHIP
Monday January 15, 2018
Most dealerships today have an established “process” in the service drive and are good at moving customers and their vehicles through the service experience. In fact, they do a great job transactionally. It is often the interpersonal aspect of the process that is overlooked. This course explains and demonstrates how to influence customers in the service department to purchase needed services. Participants will improve their listening and speaking skills and will learn how to develop better rapport with customers. Working with other participants in groups, learners will perform tasks that require them to overcome common objections and practice/role play scenarios with realistic responses in their own words. This experience, coupled with segments on positive body language and specific words and phrases to use (and not use) with customers, makes this course a learning powerhouse in skills and knowledge that are not often learned and practiced.
