The key to the eMatrix philosophy is to teach people how to have more genuine conversations by providing strategies based on the psychology of human behaviour. 

We focus on customer behaviour and what is happening in our brain when we react to our customers.   We explore bias, ego, judgement and frustration and how to reduce these for more constructive conversations.  By teaching participants the techniques around language, call control, empathy and complaint handling techniques, it results in building customer trust and proactively avoids conflict, which in turn reduces staff  burnout.

Our catchy language and methodology sticks, as participants learn about The Cobra, Dirty Words and Rabbit Holes, to place renewed and fun focus on customer service, building consistency in approach and better group understanding of what ‘good’ looks like.

Our courseware consists of hundreds of video examples, role plays, recorded calls and case studies,providing practical examples across industry for what works and what doesn’t.

FACE TO FACE & VIRTUAL TRAINING

WHY CUSTOMER ENGAGEMENT HAS BECOME SO TRICKY

There are so many competing priorities for customer service staff now, from ensuring they are compliant, meeting organisational targets and KPI’s, to providing the service customers expect, being measured on that internally and staying motivated within the role.

TRAINING PROGRAMS AND SUPPORT

The eMatrix team have developed programs to help staff with the recipe for how to have respectful conversations, how to manage their own mindset, and techniques for both pro-actively avoiding conflict and for how to manage complaints and escalations.

STRATEGIES FOR LONG TERM SUSTAINABILITY

We provide organisations with strategies for long term sustainability of the training through quick reference guides, customised objection handling toolkits, a skills matrix and can be further supported through call quality and coaching.

CUSTOMISED TO YOUR ORGANISATION

The training is customised to suit the unique opportunities  your organisation is looking to address from cultural change, reducing complaints, improved customer satisfaction, resetting expectation  or simply to provide existing staff with a refresh and new ideas for their toolkit.
