Creative problem solving suggests that through an open
approach to finding solutions, an appropriate and innovative
result may be discovered.
Customers appreciate creativity.

about innovative ways of solving challenges, customer service
providers can share their creativity with others.
Problems As Opportunities

advantage of the opportunity to share other related concerns in a
positive manner.
Focus on finding the best solution to the conflict.
