Talk Softly

Tell the client that you are in control of the issue and will apply your particular exertion to accomplish results. Once in a while it might be enticing to separate yourself from the issue by expressing that you are not in charge of it, that an alternate division will need to handle it, or that you are simply a courier.

Work on a Solution

If you’re bound by organizational procedures, explain them to the client and try to find an alternative. It’s vital  to show your concern that you realize his problem is important and that you will do whatever you can to rectify it.
