Building culture and leading a team is a critical skill for anyone in charge of employees whether you’ve just started your career or are getting toward the end.

In a contact centre environment, for example, over 75% of managers started their career on the phones so it’s not uncommon for managers to have received little to no training in these crucial skills. Most training tends to focus on the technical skills and managers are often left to work things out on their own when it comes to building a culture and leadership skills.

But the good news is these are skills that can be learnt and they will make a massive difference to your workplace with improved engagement and productivity directly impacted.

The Building Culture and Leading a Team training course introduces leaders to the key concepts that will equip them to drive high performance in their teams. The concepts used are deliberately simple to be easily applied in the workplace and contain language hooks that leaders can use to align goals and achieve real collaboration.

Building culture and Leading a team training course takeaways

6 Powerful Modules

We have built this Building Culture and Leading a Team training course to enable leaders time to learn and apply their new-found skills in-between sessions so the program is delivered over 6 weeks 1 x 3-hour workshop each week.

Each 3-hour workshop includes time to practice and all the workshops are delivered live by Australia’s leading Frontline Leadership Coach, Saul Wajntraub.

Week 1

1. Building Relationships

Successful teams have a leader who can harness all the different skills of the people in the team for the biggest collective benefit.

Constructive, useful, and enjoyable working relationships are the foundation a leader needs to establish and grow with each of their people. These relationships build by leaders taking a genuine interest in their people and understanding what motivates each of them.

Building Rapport and Trust and understanding people’s communication preferences are the key concepts used in this workshop.

Week 2

2. Having the Right Conversation

Genuine and authentic conversations are the best way to create the clear communication needed to make sure everyone in a team is on the same page. When you have the right conversation, you will find it easier to get what you need done and importantly leave the other person feeling motivated by doing the task.

The second element to clear communication is the ability to structure the conversation so information flows both ways without creating tension or misunderstanding.  Feedback is a valuable gift when given in a constructive way by someone who has your trust.  Often confusion happens due to a lack of clarity and can soon turn to disagreement and dissatisfaction.

A conversation has 2 elements; asking questions and listening to responses. If you ask the right questions, listen attentively to the replies and then respond positively to this new information, your conversation will move towards a constructive outcome.

Week 3

3. Motivating My Team

Your success as a leader will be determined by the quality and quantity of the work your team produce.

The leaders’ role is not to be great at doing the majority of tasks themselves but at ensuring that your team has the motivation needed to give their maximum effort and the support to complete tasks they may not have mastered.

Unlocking your teams’ discretionary effort is the key to leading a high performing team.

Motivation is a complex topic and we will focus this workshop on 3 elements:

  1. Who am I as a leader?
  2. How do I motivate my team?
  3. How do I have a conversation to manage performance?

Week 4

4. Planning & Prioritising (Getting stuff done)

Increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of your daily activities through strategic planning and prioritising of tasks is vital to high performance.

We share 3 tools that allow you to determine what your priorities are and then how to get the most constructive action towards completing those priorities.

So much of our time is spent being busy working but then at the end of the day our ‘to-do list’ looks just as it did when the day began, if not longer. When we spend a small amount of time consciously planning the activities and outcomes we want from the day, we take control over where we invest our time and energy.

This control gives a focus that provides the clarity to prioritise the important tasks and gets the important stuff done!

Using the language of Big Rocks, the Urgent v Important matrix and Effort v Important matrix you will be able to quickly be clear on which tasks should be your priority. These tools can be used for planning but also in the moment to help prioritise what needs to happen…. now!

Week 5

5. Mindset and Running Great Meetings

An effective meeting brings relevant people together to collaboratively progress towards an objective. Having a structure and plan for how a meeting will run will help to use meeting time effectively.

Our template for running effective meetings has 3 stages:

  1. Planning – How do I set the meeting up?
  2. Handling Dynamics- How do I manage the intention of the people in the meeting?
  3. Actioning and follow-up- How do I ensure we have action after the meeting to keep moving forward.

Week 6

6. Change Leadership Through Clear Communication

The one constant a leader must negotiate to create and maintain a successful team is helping people transition to meet change.

Change presents in many forms, some at organisational level, some at a team level and some at an individual level.  Change affects people differently and their ability to transition to a new normal is greatly affected by how supported they feel from their leader.

Everyone responds differently to change and our responses are personal and unique. As a leader, you have a great opportunity to positively influence how people cope and respond to change.

Change Leadership is the focus on how your people transition from an old process to a new one. Leading through Change is action-based.

What you say is important but the time you invest in your people understanding the impacts on them is pivotal in you successfully leading in times of change.  Let’s look at how you lead people through change.

We focus on 2 areas:

  1. Transitions with BIll Bridges’ model
  2. 3 core skills

Review of Building Culture and Leading a Team (Private Course)

Saul’s valuable coaching and advice was instrumental in helping me to navigate a period of change in my sales team and rebuild a stronger, more cohesive team.
As a leader, it’s often that your skill-set is built from the many trials and tribulations that you’ve had over your career and often your coaching sessions with your direct manager are quite tactical in nature. Our job is to coach and support our direct reports whilst we may not affording ourselves that opportunity against the daily hustle.
I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Saul and to Webcentral Group for investing in its leaders by utilising Saul’s talents. Saul ultimately provided me the space to improve my effectiveness as a leader and a sales coach. It begs the question ‘why haven’t I done this sooner and why isn’t this the norm in some businesses?’.
Either way, if you are looking to drive performance, culture and help your leaders become more effective – Saul Wajntraub will help you achieve that. I wholeheartedly recommend him.

I had a fantastic learning experience with the half day Journey Mapping course. Shane was our trainer and explained things thoroughly, used great practical examples and helped through the exercise when needed. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. The group size was not too big so everyone was able to contribute online. I feel confident to 'give a journey map a go' now, thank you. Helen

The Introduction to Contact Centre Management is an excellent course for those looking to understand contact centres from a helicopter view and benchmark their operations. From the fundamental pillars to critical KPIs and performance metrics that underpin almost every contact centre globally, Justin is personable and professional and speaks with authority on a topic he knows intimately.

We have done a few training courses now through Justin and the CX Group.In these sessions the facilitator has been Dan Ord and Dans knowledge of the Contact Centre world is second to none. This was great for us as we attended as a team to ensure that the training that we received was able to be applied across my entire management team and also allowed me to drive the right outcomes based on Dan, Marcus and Justins advice and guidance.The best thing about this is that this was not one of those courses that you attend and then nothing more is said or done with this. . . Dan/Justin offer their email address so if you come up with additional questions later that you want guidance on you can ask and they are more than willing to assist.Dan, Marcus and Justin thanks for facilitating this training and we will sure be intouch for other training courses that we would like to run through the CX Group.Bec Goss

The CX Management Fundamentals course was exceptional, a balanced blend of best in-class examples and theory . Daniel was the utmost professional, sharing his wealth of knowledge in customer experience and contact centre management. Content was relevant and covered an array of business examples. A course that exemplifies two-way participation (no death by PowerPoint). The diverse group of attendees had the opportunity to share their experiences and knowledge, which was priceless. I highly recommend this course for anyone in the customer experience realm, even beginners like me.

I learnt a lot about CX and the course gave me clarity on the 6 main competencies. The training was fun, enjoyable, I can recommend to anyone who is passionate about the "Customer" subject. Daniel is very knowledgeable and experienced, he used real life business examples to understand both the strategic and tactical elements of CX. He also involved us which generated even more credibility.

Another great course put together by Justin presented by their partners at Omnitouch, Daniel and Marcus.The "How to Design a Quality Assurance Program for Contact Centres" was extremely fitting for our organisation as we transition to a new telephony system.The course was not one of those courses where they give you the answer and a few templates sending you on your way. Daniel and Marcus take you through why an appropriate framework should take into consideration the Organisations, Mission Statement, Values and Customer Service Charter.As the session was run via Zoom, it enabled and encouraged networking opportunities not only across Australia but also with International attendees. This was a fantastic benefit as it allowed us to draw on each others lived experiences.I really encourage you all to check out the courses and information that CX Skills has to offer as they are the best place to not only continue but to also start your learning and development!

The training provided manages to take complex sales strategies and make them easy to understand and implicate in a sales call. It provides a structure that isn’t stifled by wordy scripts and pitches, and guides consultants towards a successful outcome for both the customer and consultant.This training took efficient, tried and tested sales concepts and expand on them to not only generate higher conversion, but a more positive customer experience.Aside from the training, which was amazing, Simon - the trainer - was a pleasure to work with. He was attentive and showed a real passion and desire to enhance the trainee’s sales expertise.I would recommend CX Group to anyone who will listen!

I recently attended the Contact Centre Management Fundamentals course and found it extremely useful and relevant. Daniel was extremely knowledgeable on all topics and handled questions with ease. He was a great trainer and i found the session had a great mix to suit all learning styles. I have taken so much from this course, the networking opportunities as well as the CX website and associated resources. I highly recommend attending if you are looking to better understand contact centre management regardless of what level you work at.

Really enjoyed course on handling difficult customers. I came away with a number of tools that I can use not only with customers, but also day to day life.
Justin from CX responded promptly to my training enquiry. He heard what we wanted and we discussed best way to present this during Melbourne Lockdown. He conducted the introduction to contact centre leadership remotely with a small group. He weaved his contact centre experience with humour and activities that were appropriate and engaging. At the end each person agreed that they learnt lots and were going to apply at least one thing back in their role. I would highly recommend CX and Justin for training and support.
