Better Customer Service video training
Selling our services
All service involves selling and selling entails meeting needs. This module shows how service staff
can identify customer’s needs and then meet them by :
asking questions and actively listening
giving advice based on product knowledge
bending the rules
providing ‘extras’ and ‘add-on-sales’
taking personal responsibility for problems.
This module has been designed to meet the needs of frontline service staff. However, it would also
be appropriate for other service staff, including those in back-up and support functions.

The Improving Service Series...
... was created by psychologists Peter Quarry and Eve Ash to meet an urgent need in Australian
organisations for high quality service training. The series’ philosophy recognises that
organisations must look at how their whole organisation functions.
Thus, a range of modules has been produced for staff at various levels - senior managers and
supervisors, as well as frontline and other service staff. Each module covers a topic vital to those
organisations wanting to offer exceptional service.
Accompanying videos cover a variety of situations, over a range of industries, so that common
principles can be highlighted. Each video has been designed to encourage service staff to identify
and appreciate quality service... as receivers as well as providers. Service staff who are sensitive
to receiving quality service become sensitive to providing it.
Support Materials available: Training leader’s guide.
The preview or hire charge is entirely deducted in the case of the purchase of the videofilm so you
