The Most Important Lever Contact Centers Aren’t Pulling
Scott Rothman, Director

Very little of the modern contact center resembles the call center of yesterday. Customers are savvier than ever and expectations are a constant moving target. As a result, companies now hire reps who can be successful in taking control of customer issues. However, companies continue to fill their supervisor ranks by promoting their top-performing reps into leadership roles that they are not prepared to do. Our research shows that coaching is the best driver of frontline rep performance — doing this well will result in higher performance gains relative to best practices in retention, recruiting, and even training. Join this session to learn about the coaching model your supervisors should be practicing—and the risks you face if they do not.

Small Words, Big Impact
Lauren Pragoff, Vice President, Effortless Experience™

Customer baggage includes past experiences, perceptions, and relationships with companies that customers carry into service interactions. In many organizations, customer service representatives are trained to ignore customer baggage, and instead focus on resolving the immediate issue they contacted the company about. What those organizations do not realize is that customer effort can be reduced up to 72% by acknowledging baggage in live service interactions.
