Welcome to Solid Insights
The Contact Center Whisperer’s Corner
Hey there, Solid Rockstars!
Hey Hey Hey Guys and Welcome to SRC’s November Newsletter
The holidays are upon us! So before we hop in I want to challenge your “servant” leadership mentality. When was the last time you showed someone compassion?
According to Merriam Webster, compassion is defined as a sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it.
Many times we as leaders can get so caught up in getting the job done. So engulfed in ensuring the boxes are checked and everyone is doing what they are supposed to do that we forget that the biggest part of being a transformational leader is being a servant leader!
I challenge you this month to find a way to serve your team at a deeper level.
Ok soapbox over… Let’s hop into the 2 selected leadership thoughts for this month.

A special “Thank You” to Tango for sponsoring our November Rockstar Award!
About The Event: Previously, contact centers handled workforce responsibilities independently. One team managed quality assurance, another conducted training, and yet another created agent schedules. Supervisors often did coaching with no input from other functional areas.
This disconnected approach no longer works in today’s complex, omnichannel contact centers. Workforce Optimization is a wide-ranging field that now encompasses Quality Assurance and Analytics as well as Workforce and Performance Management.
CrmXchange and our partners, the Quality Assurance and Training Connection (QATC) and the Society of Workforce Planning Professionals (SWPP) are presenting two fact-filled virtual conferences over two consecutive weeks. This provides WFO professionals the year’s most comprehensive opportunity to gain greater insights into the latest technologies, tactics and best practices.

AEP Season Wheewww….. AEP Season is already upon us! However, it’s never too late to dust off those playbooks. Playbooks are a cross functional way to communicate service level expectations, thresholds, and triggers that can be pulled to stabilize the business. Having WFM and/or Operational playbooks ensure your team knows what to do and who should be doing it.
Playbooks empower our team members to be agile and take ACTION!
The key to a successful playbook strategy is SOCIALIZATION!!
