Complaint Resolution using the TACTICS method

Complaint Resolution using the TACTICS method

This worksheet uses the acronym TACTICS to work through a step by step process to handle a complaint from a customer. This is an important aspect of customer service. Once the learner has reviewed the process, it is a good idea to have the class separate into groups and role play various complaints scenarios using this method.I have used this successfully with a Business training class. They enjoyed it and it worked well.
