Smile On The Phone
(Not published in online story)

Sometimes, all you know is what you hear on the telephone. Here is advice from Aurora author Jeannie Davis from her books, Beyond "Hello" and Real World Customer Service Strategies That Work.
  • Look good to yourself. Self-esteem, or what you think about yourself, is the driving force behind your attitude. Looking good to yourself means more than feeling good inside. It also means looking good on the outside, which lets others know how well you view yourself.
  • Develop a can-do attitude. When you transmit a positive can-do attitude, people are naturally more responsive. Productivity and customer relationships suffer when our attitude isn't on straight. Anyone can provide good customer service. The challenge always is to strive for customer service excellence by going the extra mile.
  • Practice positive thinking. Eighty percent of what we say to ourselves is negative. Sometimes you need to assess your initial reaction, work through negative circumstances and take it upon yourself to turn things around. Make a habit of replacing negative helpless thoughts with positive powerful ones.
  • Use positive language. People understand and respond one-third more quickly to positive words than negative ones. Notice how you respond differently when specific comments or requests are phrased in a more positive manner.
