Handling Difficult Situations

Complaint handling is an essential and useful skill. Whether it is your customer who is complaining, or your client, supplier or even your colleague, you have a great opportunity to see yourself from another’s point of view. The way you handle a complaint can be far more important than the solution you provide and can lead to long term customer loyalty.
