Authentic Leadership- The key to leading an entry level workforce and driving performance in today's Call Center Industry

The Call Center Industry is undergoing silent but radical change, as several unique challenges such as a more diverse workplace demographic, the need for organizations to be able to respond quickly to ever shifting customer expectations and preferences all put the cost of providing support to both employees and customers in constant and intense focus. Achieving efficiency through increased performance in these support processes is my specialty. In this heartfelt but frank conversation we will discuss the unique leadership challenges facing the industry today. We will layout three simple concepts for Call Center Leaders to rethink, refocus and recharge their existing management programs and models to meaningfully reconnect to their front-line entry level workforce to drive performance and business outcomes. It all begins with Authentic Leadership. We will discuss, how beginning with this principle first, you can begin to unlock better business outcomes through improved performance. Driving efficiency in the operations and performance and making a difference for organizations and others is what I get excited about. Feel free to plan to share your thoughts and ideas with us all, as we discuss the topic.
