learnit Customer-focused telephony

Customer-oriented telephone course

A lot of customer contact takes place over the phone. The way in which you speak to customers is of great importance: after all, you are the company's calling card. A customer's decision to return to your organisation may depend on the way he or she is treated by you. What is your tone of voice? How do you assess the needs and wishes of the customer? And how do you react when these wishes are not met? When these questions are not (or no longer) a problem for you in practice, you get more satisfaction from your work and you leave a positive impression of your organisation.

In our Customer-focused telephony training course, you learn the basic skills of telephonic communication. In addition to dwelling on the question of what communication actually entails, effective questioning and listening techniques are also dealt with. These skills are also practiced extensively, so that they are immediately applicable in practice. The entire telephone process is covered, so that you can continue to work in a customer-oriented manner from the moment you pick up the phone to when you hang up.


  • Apply communication techniques in a conscious and customer-oriented manner
  • The telephone etiquette
  • Active listening
  • Showing interest and creating atmosphere
  • Ask questions
  • Summary techniques
  • Dealing effectively with complaints
  • Customer-oriented thinking
  • Using your voice well
  • Learning to inform and advise.


After the training you will have:

  • clarity about the do's and don'ts of customer contact;
  • understanding that one's own behaviour influences the perception of the customer;
  • Awareness of voice use, non-verbal behaviour and verbal communicative expressions, and their effect on the client;
  • understanding the frame of reference of the customer (customer perspective) and yourself and
  • you can find out the real question

Working method

  • Customisation is our focus: through a telephone intake interview, the trainer makes an inventory of your personal learning goals. On this basis, the definitive programme of the training course is determined.

  • We strongly believe in doing and experiencing, rather than talking about the content of trainings, which is why all our trainings are active in nature.
