I'm going to make a prediction. There's little chance this video will go viral. Here's why. Because no one cares to talk about customer complaints. But I want to challenge you to listen to this whole thing because it will save you a lot of sleepless nights, make and save you a lot of money, and create a culture for your company. So let's get right into it.

Pat, as always, you have done a phenominal job. I love your advice and I do use it professionally and share it with my entrepreneur community. As for myself, I own a California DMV consulting service and as you can imagine, I deal with complaints most resulting in customers who do not follow detailed instructions. The most difficult part is not becoming defensive as customers love to finger point and avoid responsibilty. Your advice here has definately shed light on my methods and new methods I will have to implement. On a side note, I have watched your video's improve over time. The quality, content, and your personal message conveyed to your audience. I would like to meet you one day even if it's just for a few minutes over coffee. I know that will probably be difficult as your business and popularity grow. Good luck! Please keep up the good work!

A complaint presents the opportunity to show just how great you can be! No, the customer is NOT always right, but you have to deal with them like they are. (Yes, there are always exceptions, of course.)

You're a really engaging speaker, sir. I really learned a lot from you in this video. Thank you for sharing this. Now, it's up to me on how to slowly do this in my calls. I'm new to customer service (almost a year on the field) and decided to find videos that would help me provide better customer service to customers who are really upset with our service in general. Anyway, you rock! Will surely subscribe and share. 😀

great tips, handling complaints are always hard. i think listening first and letting the customer rant will give you time to think of a quick solution. Often times people also back paddle after saying bad things. so holding back on saying something right after a complaint can do both you and your customers good.

Really well done. I've read and hopefully absorbed some. it seems to be told from a "perfect case" scenario in which an error truly was committed. What if the customer is complaining/ expressing themselves in a not so nice way? Meaning just complain. Or one of those complainers wear you out.

Hi there! I just joined a very large global brand and I’m thrilled to be doing telephone customer service for them. I just have to say thank you for this video. I have added it to my very short list of favorite videos on You Tube. Negativity certainly runs rampant in this world, geez. I like the anecdotes you gave about your experiences on both sides of the fence, as a customer and business owner. I enjoy how you speak, it’s energetic and kept me engaged. Three thumbs up!

Love this video, not only is it entertaining but transparent and informative. I was looking for the proper way a business should handle an issue, as I believe a local business handled my complaint poorly. TRshow, to the rescue, because maybe I was in the wrong with how I handled the issue. Conclusion: the business did not handle the issue correctly, but I could have expressed my frustration better. Thank you for a great video.

I worked two jobs at the same time. First job I’d been there years and had no idea how to handle complaints. Second job complaints all the time. All the types of complainers you are talking about. But because I dealt with complaints so much I learned that you cannot just pacify or ignore complainers. It’s valid. (Can I add Gordon Ramsey taught this lesson, too. Chefs won’t improve if the wait staff doesn’t tell chef they cooked something wrong or badly). So no I’m just back to first job and this is such an important lesson. (Most, if not all) people have a reason to complain. Their time is valuable and we care. But if people ignore the complaints companies cannot improve. One of the biggest complaints we receive is about changes that have been made. I have found customers that complaint don’t understand the benefits and we have to teach them through the process of validating their complaint. They feel valued and that they were heard and we can explain how change can be beneficial

"Pre pre pre NEUR, PAUL!!!" LOL Thanks, Patrick. This is the best heart-to-heart talk I have heard from you, especially the communist/capitalist part. And you are correct about Yelp's bad business policies. As a new business owner, I'm realizing how critical it is to be kind to everyone and do the best business. (ANYONE make a false review. Yelp sales agents kept calling me to buy clicks from customers that would cost me about $1.70 per click. I laughed at them and stopped answering their calls. I have a guy teaching me how to get $0.01 clicks now.) And... OMG! I didn't know that "trolling" was now a business. Looks like the devil is still alive and well and working in the digital realm. There's a special place in hell, for all trolls. I dearly hope they repent their wicked ways and erase all their false reviews... LOL

I am working in retail. I had an amazing manager when customer complaint he never took them seriously and always backed up the whole team because he was that inteligent the he knew that the customers are just doing that to make our team down and he was so amazing that when customer complain (normally its something out of blue) he politely was asking them to go out of the branch because he knew how hard the team is working and he knew us as a team. The whole hr loved him 😂😄😁

great video. for the first time ever i have a supervisor position, and its teaching me a lot (through a lot of bad days and angry people). do you have any videos about keeping employee "spirit" alive? what i mean is that ive seen people, and i myself have gone through this, where an employee makes a substantial leap in their customer service skills, but then the human part of it goes away slowly where interaction becomes robot like (but the newly gained skills, knowledge, gestures, etc are all still there). of course people get bored of work even if they loved it at first. do you think this is a work issue that can be solved, or more of a general question about how people are feeling in life (e.g. im at a dead end job, recently divorced, etc) which transfers into work, and much harder to solve?

I was looking for this video because I work in a contact center and most of the time I just give up on customers who ask for a manager without even saying hi. I think it's unhealthy for both of us to keep a conversation in which both of us refuse to cooperate because they had a bad experience with another representative and now I turn into machine mode to avoid sounding too sensitive or emotional but that's exactly what the problem is and I couldn't understand. Thank you for sharing some examples of how an honest person sounds when apologising and offering a solution.

I consider myself a valid complainer. 99% of the businesses get very defensive or ignore me when I complain. Most o these businesses are small to medium. What it tells me is that there is a lot of room for a competitor with a better system to come in and dominate.
