Action Plan Words and phrases to avoid! Challenging behaviour Difficult behaviour
There are many reasons why a patient/person might be upset As the customer service profession you need to try and turn it around What makes them challenging :Is it the person? / Or their behaviour? / What is the difference? Avoiding it? / Handling it?
Wherever possible resolve it at source not hand it on or fall back on:I cant do anything You need the Manager Giving the impression your basically not interested Sometimes you wont be able to solve it or they wont listen to anyone until its seen to come from the top! But at least you know you did your best to try!!!!! Six Steps How would you deal with it?

4. Avoid trigger words and actions 5. Prepare for emotions and perceptions 6.
