This slide covers information regarding tips that can be used for clear communication by a customer care executive. The tips are patience, honesty, effective listening, avoiding interruptions etc.
Following are the tips that can be used by a customer care executive for clear communication-
· Patience: Have patience with the customers and try and understand their point of view, even if they are too aggressive
· Under promise and Over deliver: It's easy to offer the world to your consumers, especially if you think it'll help them relax or make a conversation go smoothly. Setting reasonable expectations and then exceeding them is always preferable. Don't give any firm deadlines or commit to anything you're not sure your team will be able to accomplish
· Learn About Your Customer: Before attempting to assist the consumer, the more information, your staff has, the better it is. Make all of that data easily accessible to anybody who interacts with customers—the less information your team needs to get from customers, the better
· Be Honest: 89% of customers said they're more likely to support honest brands. If the customer care executive does not have the correct answer for the customers, tell them you are unsure. Remember to tell them when they can expect a resolution of the issue
· Ace Your First Impressions: First impressions are your finest chance to make a winning impression. The importance of first impressions, especially immediate ones, cannot be underestimated. Make sure your staff goes above and beyond to meet and exceed your clients' expectations
· Actively Listen: Active listening is a must for effective communication. In customer service, active listening involves being completely attentive to the client's words, comprehending what they mean, and responding in a way that supports what they're saying
· Be Positive: When you use optimistic words, it's simpler to understand and accept bad news. For example - Which of the two sounds better? "I won't be able to assist you till next month. We're having supply chain problems, so that's not available right now." Alternatively, "Next month, that product will be available. I can place an order for you right now and ensure that it is dispatched as quickly as possible“
· Avoid Interrupting: A customer service representative should not overwhelm customers with several questions without giving them a chance to answer
· Double-check your assumptions: A customer service executive can ask the customer to confirm that the assumptions are correct wherever possible. The following are some phrases that can be used: Can you confirm? & Let me know if that's right
· End Every Interaction With an Invitation- "Is there anything that can be done", should be the last line of every interaction. It shows to the customer that you are willing to assist and go an extra mile when necessary
· Ask More Questions: Ask about your consumers' feelings. If they provide you with any insights, make sure you comprehend the context. Always ask more

Following are the tips to become more assertive and to improve the ability to handle customer service scenarios.
· Don’t Mistake Assertiveness for Aggression: Aggressive behavior is all about winning, but assertive behavior is about finding a satisfying solution to a customer's problem while having a direct and honest approach
· Think About Situations: By taking time to understand what a customer is saying, a customer care representative can prevent appearing as if they have made a hasty or reactionary decision without thinking. Furthermore, they will have more processing time, which will allow them to build a confident response that will satisfy the customer
· Use ‘I’ Statements: 'I' statements are used in all assertive statements. They reflect emotional states and interests, whereas 'you' statements may be interpreted as aggressive and provoke an unwanted response from a customer. The use of the word "I" is less confrontational and conveys a direct, authoritative tone
· Always Find a Solution: A customer care executive has to be assertive when they cannot agree to a customer's demands. Instead of saying "no" to a customer, they can try providing a different solution. A compelling alternative will make the customer feel like they've had a productive chat with someone who understands their problem and cares about the ongoing relationship
· Tell the Truth: Assertiveness is based on expressing one's feelings. A customer service executive can use assertiveness to communicate effectively with customers by employing short words that clearly express their opinion

• Confident assistance: The customer care executive tone and attitude become more confident as a result of his/her product understanding
• Build trust: When it comes to building trust, all of a company's customer service representatives must have access to the same, up-to-date information
