With 75% of call centre managers starting their careers on the phones, it’s not uncommon for people to have ‘grown up’ in the contact centre. From starting on the phones, moving into a Team Leader role or specialist position, perhaps a section manager etc. before ultimately making it into the contact centre manager role.
And for the remaining 25%, most call centre managers come from other areas of the business and inherit the call centre function and then try to quickly get their head around a lot of weird acronyms, jargon and Key Performance Indicators etc.
But with no formal contact centre qualifications, degree or standards and most managers starting on the phones, it’s not surprising that most call centres simply evolve to meet the demands of your business from everything to Key Performance Indicators, processes, technology and so on.
But is there a better way to do things? For the Team Leaders and Managers that haven’t worked in many call centres or worked their way up from being on the phones, it’s really a case of you don’t know what you don’t know!
The truth is there are some fundamental practices, processes and rules that apply to best-practice contact centre management regardless of the industry sector, location, size or function of the contact centre.
And that’s what we teach in this course!
Note the course is delivered over 2 x 4-hour sessions online via Zoom.
