You run a retail garden center. A customer returns a potted lily, complaining the plant won’t rebloom. You tell him that lilies bloom only once a year. The customer still is not satisfied. What is your next step to ensure the customer is satisfied?
give him a bloom-inducing fertilizer
This will not resolve the problem, and it furthers the misconception that a bloom-inducing fertilizer will promote reblooming in a lily.
exchange the lily for a plant that reblooms
If after asking the customer how you could resolve his dissatisfaction, he requests an ever-blooming plant, then exchanging the lily for a rebloooming plant would be a good resolution.
exchange the lily for one currently in bloom
This perpetuates the problem, as this lily, too, will rebloom only once per year.
ask how he would like you to handle the situation
Question 5 Explanation:
Yes, and strive to exceed the customer's expectations.
