Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 7: Episode 13 | Empathy At Work

Idiomin someone’s shoes
Definition: imagining yourself in the situation that someone else is in.

This is called empathy.  Although the majority of the world lacks empathy, it could be developed by putting yourself in the same position.

When was the last time you complained about something at work? What happened? How was your complaint dealt with? Were you happy with the outcome? Sometimes in business, it’s impossible to keep everyone happy all the time. Sooner or later, an eruption will happen. Customers will probably get angry, employees may complain about how they’re treated, etc. How you deal with these is crucial for business, and in today’s podcast, we discuss just that!

Welcome to the final episode of Season 6! Boy, it felt like a one hundred-episode season because it took a long time just to get to episode 40! HA! But wow, so happy that it was well-received by many of you out there. Although it takes a week for podcast plays to eclipse 100 plays per episode, I’ve gotten hundreds of more cities around the globe to tune in. Well, let’s finish this season with a BANG before going into Season 7!

At the beginning of each month is the best time to enroll onto my Patreon. Here’s what’s available for everyone on these specific badges.

{Patreon Special}TOEFL iBT | Reading | Anglo-saxons

We’re back with another super special! In today’s reading, we’ll be covering Anglo-saxons. Remember, to get the full reading, go to the link down below and get access to my Patreon. Nonetheless, here’s a nice little teaser for you.

[1] In the fifth century AD, Britain was being attacked by the Irish, Pict and Germanic people from southern Denmark and Germany. These invaders were called Saxons. The term Anglo Saxon was developed in the eighth century. It was coined to distinguish between the British (Anglo) and the Germanic people (Saxons). The Roman-Britano leaders defended the land as best they could, but the invaders eventually began to settle into Britain. Irish kingdoms settled in both the west and north of the country. Meanwhile, the Angles, Saxons and Jute tribes took over the east part of Britain.

{Patreon Special} TOEFL iBT Reading | The Navigation Acts

More uploads are scheduled for today! Prepare yourself…..and by the way, I see that that are difficulties within some of the readings so I will either (A) do a response video. Or (B), write the explanations in the comment below the document. Stay tuned in your notifications!

Here’s the first question for all of you who follow me.

[2] The first Navigation Act was passed in 1651. The Act declared that all products grown and produced in Asia, America, and Africa should be transported only in English boats. In addition, the Act included a provision that goods transported into England from Europe should also be carried by English boats only. The second Navigation Act was passed in 1660, forbidding any importation into or exportation out of the British colonies except in English vessels. It also declared that certain products, such as cotton, sugar, and tobacco, could only be transported to England or one of its plantations.

Arsenio’s Business English Podcast | Season 6 | Sales | Investigating Complaints: Reporting to Customers

This is a LONG story in terms of how to deal with complaints, whether it’s in your professional life or personal life. There’s a fine line between constructive criticism, and there is just the ungrateful. Do you often continue doing work with people who have complained before? In my experience here in Thailand, I worked with companies in the outskirts of Bangkok before who had complained about me having a great personality — true story. These companies don’t deserve an amazing trainer like me, and going forward, I established a value system that helps me in choosing companies, clients, gigs.  In today’s podcast, we discuss just that.
