3. Read the passage and select how you would most likely and least likely respond
You are working in a small team as part of your training with a firm of surveyors. You overhear one of your more senior colleagues on the phone to a client. They are having a disagreement which results in your colleague raising their voice and giving them some information which you know to be incorrect. Your colleague is usually fantastic with clients and is well respected across the business but you know they have been having personal problems recently. At the end of the call, you ask your colleague if they are ok and whether they’d like to talk but they tell you to keep out of it and that they know what they are doing. What do you do?
Read the passage and select how you would most likely and least likely respond:
A. Call the client back as soon as you get a chance to try and smooth over the situation on behalf of your colleague.
B. Talk to your manager as soon as you can and explain what you observed so that the situation can be rectified as soon as possible.
C. Accept that your colleague is more senior than you and that they must know what they are doing.
D. Give your colleague some time to calm down and then ask them if they’d like to join you for a coffee. Give them a chance to discuss the call and if that doesn’t generate an appropriate response, talk to your manager.
C. Least likely. By accepting the behaviour of your colleague you are condoning the way they spoke to the client and this brings the risk of losing that client. It can be hard to give feedback to a more senior colleague but the relationship with the client is vital.
D. Most likely. The customer’s satisfaction is of utmost importance and the ideal situation would be for your colleague to smooth things over themselves. This approach allows them to talk things through with you and then to speak to the client. If that fails, you know you can always talk to your manager.
