Using the person's name shows that you value and acknowledge their individuality, which can contribute to a positive atmosphere.

    The four levels of crisis development are anxiety, defensive, acting out, and tension reduction. This progression suggests that individuals initially experience anxiety as they perceive a threat or challenge. They then move into a defensive state, where they attempt to protect themselves from the crisis. This may involve denial, avoidance, or other defensive mechanisms. If these defenses are not effective, individuals may escalate to the acting out stage, where they express their distress through impulsive or aggressive behaviors. Finally, as the crisis is resolved or managed, individuals experience tension reduction, which is a return to a more relaxed state.

By responding quietly and calmly, it can help to de-escalate the situation and show the customer that you are composed and ready to listen. Asking questions to show interest demonstrates that you are actively engaged and willing to understand their concerns. Showing empathy involves acknowledging and understanding the customer's emotions, which can help to build rapport and ease their anger.
