On tonight's show Rich will discuss how to handle your very worst customer situations, using techniques from hostage negotiators, crisis counselors, psychotherapists and others. Specific techniques include how to "lean in" to criticism, why most people do not know how to acknowledge other people, how to deliver bad news, how to handle arrogant and demanding customers and more!
Tune in and learn how to handle even the very worst situations and how to become supremely confident with any customer.
As usual, at the end of the show, Lynn and her guest will play the '7 Graces Lightning Round' when, in less than 3 minutes, our guests will show how each of the 7 Graces relates to everything discussed during the show.
