Customer Service Charades
Ask one member in the team to pick a card.
The card will describe someone or a situation which they may encounter.
Their job is to act out the emotion, personality or situation to the group within 60 seconds.
The team need to guess what is being acted out.
As facilitator, capture the team's guesses.
What was it about the body language that made the team think that?
What does that mean when helping customers?
What judgements do we make based on body language?
How does that affect customer experience?
How might our own body language trigger a response from the customer?
What is the appropriate body language for your organization, and your customers?
This exercise is also useful to get the team thinking about their response and reaction to the customer's body language. What does that trigger in them?
How can they manage that reaction, so that they suspend their own emotional reaction and help the customer.
Get your own copy of the cards you can use to run this exercise. Complete with blank cards so that you can make the exercise really relevant to your people.
