  6. 6. • In a study of communication at the University of Pennsylvania in 1970 (Kinesics and Communication, R. Birdwhistle), the researchers determined that in communication, 7% of what we communicate is the result of the words that we say, or the content of our communication. 38% of our communication to others is a result of our verbal behaviour, which includes tone of voice, timbre, tempo, and volume. 55% of our communication to others is a result of our nonverbal communication, our body posture, breathing, skin colour and our movement. The match between our verbal and non-verbal communication indicates the level of congruency.

SOME CASUAL WORDS Ya OK Sure One Sec Just a minute Who’s speaking??? I’ve no idea!
  28. 28. HOLD AND MUTE PROCEDURE WHY IS THIS IS IMPORTANT? If incorrectly used, it could lead to being rude, unprofessional and also affect the quality of the call.

  31. 31. Ask the customers if you may put them on hold Because it is an inconvenience to your customers to be put on hold, you should always ask permission before putting them on hold. Does anybody know I’m here Have I been forgotten Why is this taking so long Should I hang up #*%*# * Remember you don’t like to wait either. PERMISSION TO PUT ON HOLD
  32. 32. WAIT FOR A RESPONSE “Can you hold---”click is a situation so common that customers might be surprised to see you waiting for a response. The second part of of putting someone on hold is to wait for a positive response from the customer’s side. As soon as the customer agrees to hold say “Thank You” before clicking the hold button.
  33. 33. ELL THE CUSTOMERS - ‘WHY’’ Most customers are very patient if they are politely informed as to why they must hold. They find it easier and comfortable to wait on hold if they have a mental picture of what’s the service associate doing while away from the phone. Be sure the information is pertinent.
  34. 34. GIVE A TIME FRAME Short (up to 60 seconds) - This will take a few moments Long (1-3 minutes) - This could take me 2 or 3 minutes to sort out. Would you like to hold or do you want me to call you back? Eternity (over 3 minutes) - Ask for a number to call him/ her back.
  35. 35. THANK THE CUSTOMER FOR HOLDING Saying “ Thank You for your patience” is very basic,good and common courtesy. This action nicely rounds off the on-hold sequence and acknowledges the caller’s understanding and patience.

  39. 39. EXPLAIN CO-WORKER’S ABSENCE POSITIVELY Customers rarely want to hear gruesome details as to why the person they’re trying to reach is unavailable. Likewise your co-workers will not like their private lives discussed with customers. Use.. Jai isn’t available at the moment / Raj just stepped out / Nikita is in a meeting, May I help you?
  40. 40. TELEPHONE COURTESY Never be rude to a caller, no matter how nasty they are. Always remember to handle yourself in a professional manner.
