CX Training Courses

Who should do this course?

This course will benefit anyone who wants to understand the fundamentals that apply to all inbound contact centres including roles such as:

  • An existing Team Leader who is preparing to move into a more senior role.
  • An existing contact centre manager who is looking to learn global best-practice operations.
  • A newcomer to contact centre management.
  • A senior executive with accountability for the contact centre channel who needs to learn the key fundamentals to enable them to effectively manage the channel.

What happens in the course:

Over the course of two days, you’re going to learn leading contact centre management practices supported by quizzes, exercises and discussions in a fun, supportive environment.

The course is designed to help you develop superior mastery of this often complex and misunderstood area.

This course will bring you global best practice honed with decades of experience and is based around five powerful modules, which you can immediately implement the moment you return to your call centre.

Contact Centre University

University is a higher learning facility where optimal learning occurs, much like this module we capture all aspects of calculating labour budgets through to analysing delay profiles.  You leave this section with a solid understanding of how to articulate the Contact Centre complexities to both senior management and your own Team Members.

Forecasting & Staffing

Forecasting & Staffing practices matter – whether you’re a new 5 seats Centre or a long-term 300+ seats Centre.  So we cover forecasting, staff calculations, shrinkage and all the ‘math’ you need to understand to put the right number of people in the right place at the right time.  It’s not only fun, it’s fascinating!

Customer Wait Time

A thorough review of Service Level, Wait Time metrics and what success looks like for your Centre.  Service Level, Abandonment Rate, Response Time, Average Speed of Answer and Longest Wait Time are highly interrelated but often misunderstood.  We even cover how to read the ‘readerboard’ so that everyone knows when to ‘react’ to changes on the floor and when everything is fine and in order.

Measuring Staff Performance

We define how to measure Staff performance – at all levels.  Quality, First Contact Resolution, Occupancy, Adherence to Schedule, Average Handling Time.  We define the right way to measure both productivity & quality at the Agent level, the Team Leader level and the Management level.  You’ll know exactly ‘who’ to hold accountable for ‘what’ in the Centre.

The Team Leader Role

Learn about the most important role in the contact centre – the Team Leader. We cover things like what are the key roles & responsibilities, what are the key skill requirements and more.

What you’ll leave with

We know that when you invest time and money on upgrading your skills at this level, you expect massive results!

If you’re looking for ways to maximise efficiency, staff performance and to start seeing a tangible increase in results when it comes to your contact centre performance, this course can do just that.

Learn how to increase productivity, improve your employee engagement and of course, improve the customer experience to gain that elusive competitive edge in your marketplace.

You will also:

  • Unlock the complete forecasting & staffing process including how to calculate a labour budget and how to use an Erlang C Calculator.
  • Learn exactly which metrics matter the most for each role in your centre.
  • Understand the interrelationships between key metrics and how to interpret results.
  • Learn where the leverage is to enhance efficiency and quality.
  • Understand the job role and expected outcomes of the team leader and quality assurance roles.
  • Learn how and when to implement self-coaching practices.
  • Be in a position to guide others in their contact centre work.
  • Develop new confidence!
