How to Talk to Members: Handling Difficult Members & Situations
Wednesday, June 27, 2012
9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. Hawaii Time
Barry Thompson, CRCM, Thompson Consulting Group, LLC
Registration Deadline: June 13, 2012
We all know and have heard that members are the lifeblood of the credit union and frontline staff and call center
personnel are the true face of the credit union. However, in the day-to-day, we sometimes forget how our
surroundings affect the person entering our lobby and how staff interactions with members determine whether your
credit union flourishes or fails. In this webinar, staff/member interpersonal communications that can result in
compliments, conflicts, or account closings will be analyzed. Real-life examples of staff in normal business
encounters that exploded into difficult situations will be examined. Many of the reasons for member/staff
confrontations are easily identified: the language used may be combative, unfriendly or condescending. The member
may misinterpret the message or be angry over a situation beyond their control. This webinar will provide staff with
skills and techniques to handle even the most difficult situations.
Ø Know the only times you should say, “No!”
Ø Understand how your language, demeanor and people's perception of you impact your message
Ø Learn how to remain calm and why this is crucial
Ø Know when humor is not appropriate
This informative session is designed for frontline staff, branch managers, call center personnel, security staff, and
anyone with daily member contact.
