Just like road rage, people seem to be a lot braver when they are behind the wheel, or yelling at you on the phone... even when you are trying to help, and probably bursting for a toilet break. This course is designed for the largest growing workplace - call centres and customer intakes - and give some simple tools to understanding our brain, the responses of our clients, and redirecting our reactions to enable safer, more controlled responses.
