When you work the front desk, you’re the first to see most outsiders. And making a great impression on each visitor would be an easy job if every guest showed up on time, as planned and with a smile on his or her face. But angry, pushy, impatient or just downright intimidating people can send your usual polite, calm and confident approach out the window. You can’t let this happen. But you can’t back down either. Your organization depends on you for the best, most professional response.
