Slide 6 

This slide depicts an activity that customer service executives can do during a training session to deal with a difficult customer.

Instructor Notes: This exercise is made to empathize customer care executives with difficult customers.

  • The goal here is to explain why the customer became difficult to handle for example, the difficult customer may have had a bad experience
  • Make the customer care executive step into the shoes of a difficult customer, so that they can relate better to the customer next time
  • Allow groups to share the message, the backstory they created, and their appropriate customer service response

Takeaway- Customers are not typically rude, demanding, or vague. Typically, they will have had a negative experience that has caused them to be this way. It's important to remember that when you're confronted by one of these customers, there would have been a chain of events that led them to act the way they are. Knowing this will assist you in remaining objective and solution-focused when these customers seek your assistance.

The essential thing to do is apologize and convince them that you are trying to resolve the problem. Also, offer comprehensive and open information to the client as to why the cargo was delaying. A fantastic method to settle the problem is to provide the consumer with a discount on their next order or free delivery.


Representative: Please accept my heartfelt apologies. Late delivery may be pretty inconvenient. I can tell you that we are doing all in our power to fix this matter for you. The cargo was suspended due to a natural disaster at our fulfillment site in California. As an apology, we'd like to offer you a 10% discount on your next purchase.

Why don't you try talking to our technical expert and tell us what you think?

Scenario 1: Issue is on the client side

Sorry you’re experiencing this issue and we are sorry for your troubles. I’ve looked into your account and the problem seems to be that you’re still using the older version of the software on your system due to which you are creating this glitches and system failure. I can share a link from where you can download the new version

Customer Care representative should not provide incorrect information, but also not lose the customer. If she can think quickly on the feet, she can talk to the customer, gauge his/her preference and suggest a suitable alternative which is available.

Representative: Hello! We understand the concern about the product but we are short on supply due to supply issues that leads to late delivery of the product.

Instructor’s Notes:

A product flaw should be corrected immediately since it spoils the customer brand experience. We also risk losing the customer forever if we don’t fix it immediately. Alternately, customer life time value can significantly increase if any product flaw is fixed immediately 


We're disappointed to hear that. We don't hear about this problem often; therefore, it might have resulted from a manufacturing error. We are happy to send you a replacement immediately

Slide 34

This slide covers the concerns from customer regarding new updates and features in the product

Instructor’s Notes:
