Your Contact Center Superhero - Calabrio - ContactCenterWorld.com Blog

Your Contact Center Superhero

Your contact center is a superhero? You might be surprised—after all, contact centers are often:

  • Under-valued by the larger organization
  • Under-funded
  • Viewed purely as a cost center
  • The first place budget is cut when the need arises
  • And staffed by entry-level employees

Not exactly the standard definition for a superhero. But for customer-centric organizations, the term “contact center superhero” is an accurate—and multi-faceted—description. It’s up to you whether or not you endow your contact center with exceptional, superhuman abilities, so your company truly can become customer-centric.

Profile of a Contact Center Superhero

The heart of a customer-centric organization is the contact center. This is the frontline to your customers, the source and sustenance for the customer intelligence lifeblood critical to your success. Companies that are superheroes:

  • Analyze and leverage the vital customer information cultivated by the contact center because they recognize its value to other departments and the business at large
  • Foster an environment of empowerment, not an environment of fear, where agents are confident it’s okay to make a mistake, as long as they learn from it and move forward
  • Defend their contact center budgets—they no longer discount their contact centers as just phone centers or a cost centers
  • Constantly tend to and nourish their contact centers and its members
  • Provide ongoing mentorship and emotional intelligence development opportunities
  • Teach agents the art of giving and receiving feedback, including how to have a candid conversation with their boss

The Men and Women Behind the Scenes

It makes sense that superhero contact centers need to be staffed by exceptional people with distinct skill sets. These stellar agents:

  • Possess a natural affinity for customer service
  • Can quickly make logical, reasonable decisions
  • Consistently deliver more than what’s asked or expected of them
  • Yearn for more authority to make decisions and take risks in the spirit of what’s in the best interest of the customer
  • Decipher intonations and subtle signals from customers that others tend to miss
  • Easily recognize others who have the potential to be stellar agents
  • Keep their humanity by using their energy in a good way

And, as you can imagine, it takes a special kind of leader to create and maintain a superhero contact center staffed by superhero agents. These leaders:

  • Can communicate the business value and far-reaching, positive business impact of their contact center
  • Fight for funding when needed
  • Are on a continuous quest to make agents’ jobs easier
  • Personally connect with the agents
  • Are genuinely interested in the contact center workforce and how to optimize its operations
  • Keep alive the original spark or energy within each agent that inspired the leader to hire them in the first place
  • Contain the contact center environment while allowing agents to be themselves
  • Know that how they make agents feel is exponentially more important than the job titles they hold
  • Tap superstar agents to mentor newer agents
