Course Outline

What’s Missing in Telephone Communication when There Is No Visual Aid

The first topic covered in this course is communication in a call center setting. Participants in this segment of the course will Identify the traits of a competent agent, the traits that undermine an agent’s effectiveness, and the obstacles that can make providing excellent service challenging. In order to validate the day’s schedule and identify any extra topics the group wants to add to the session, we will use the responses to those questions.

The Art of Great Communication: Smooth Movements

The course’s following section focuses on call etiquette, communication, and what must occur between an agent and a caller for the process to be successful. Next, we’ll look at techniques like speaking positively, paying attention and reinforcing what is said, asking pertinent questions, and using inquiries to help callers reach decisions.

Holds, Transfers, Messages, and Documentation: Managing Mechanics

The phone’s mechanics are a skill that great agents have mastered. They are skilled at putting callers on wait, transferring calls, and leaving considerate notes for others. We’ll discuss recommended practices for carrying out those tasks in this workshop section, as well as the significance of recording and summarizing a conversation.

Easy Verbal Communication: Talking

Whether they are answering call number one or call number 100, call center personnel must sound professional. The activities that agents can take to keep alert and focused throughout the day are the topic of this workshop section. . We’ll also look at the positive language that makes callers feel good about their interactions with an agent.

Empathy Training: Feeling Others’ Emotions

Callers can occasionally sound anxious, dissatisfied, or uncertain. A caller’s experience might range from excellent to merely okay to awful depending on the empathy of the agent. In this section of the workshop, we’ll concentrate on developing empathy and learning how to swiftly recognize another person’s sentiments.

Getting to Know Callers and Reducing Barriers

T was unable to comprehend what he was saying. I don’t speak any other languages, and his English wasn’t very excellent. I gave it my best effort, but it fell short. She made me think of my great-grandma, and although I tried to help, I don’t believe I helped. Even the best agents occasionally run across situations that put their abilities to the test. This section of the course will focus on methods for getting past barriers that could hinder a call’s efficacy.

Sorry: The Right Time to Apologize

When they and their companies are not at blame, some agents will apologize. Long-term, that behavior produces more harm than good to the relationship with callers. This lesson examines the phrase “I’m sorry” and when to use it. It also provides alternative words for expressing sympathy and empathy for callers.

 However, Nevertheless, and Still: Rejecting

One of the most difficult components of a call center agent’s work can be saying “no” and giving bad news. This seminar session focuses on how to communicate bad news and the significance of having an explanation, information about where to go if the response is unsatisfactory, and if they are not satisfied with the explanation different options are available

Understanding Measures: Metrics

Call volume, call length, or orders handled are some formal metrics that some call centers track. Others don’t. There are solid justifications for both strategies. Top agents monitor their development regardless of the setting in which they work. They keep track of what works and what doesn’t. The program’s final segment will cover the best methods for evaluating the performance of a team. Participants should leave this session with a fresh feeling of purpose and new abilities they can use back on the call center floor.
