  • This event has passed.

*This is a full day customer service workshop. There will be a one hour break for lunch on your own. Lunch will NOT be provided.*

Your patrons only care what you know; when they know that you care. The relationships that library staff and management builds with their patrons will be greatly influenced by how the customer feels about their experiences with your library.

In this interactive and informative workshop, we’ll start with Professional Customer Service Skills for both in the building and on the telephone patrons. From there, we’ll share and practice techniques on handling difficult, angry and threatening patron behaviors and discuss ways to simply and more effectively build patron relationships. We’ll finish the day by incorporating mindfulness techniques into our work lives to help each of us to stay balanced and emotionally in control…even when it feels like chaos and stress are running rampant.
