I'm not even close to over the hill, I just reached Base Camp. Now I'm going to acclimate briefly, then on to the Summit! .
Success is a state of mind and a positive attitude will drive you to succeed. If we think of every challenge as an opportunity we will be in a better state of mind and also in better control of our lives. I could feel old and start thinking about retirement or I could think about the next new phase in my life. I'm taking the upside and going for the top. Opportunity prevails!
Every call into a help desk or contact center can be treated as an opportunity to make a good service impression, to meet a challenge when turning around a complaint, or simply to offer sincerely appreciated knowledge to one unable to resolve an issue. If we think of things from an opportunity standpoint it will change the state of mind to one of success and delivering great service. We cannot control the complaint or issue, but we can control our approach. Taking control of our reactive nature reduces stress and this increases the opportunity for success.
Please enjoy these sites describing ways to encourage success and tips to prevent you from de-motivating people:
On a slightly different note:
I am passionate about psychology and leadership. Much of this stems from my love of and work in help desks and call centers. In my opinion, some of the best unlicensed psychologists work in service and support centers.
Think about it - most people call to get the solution to their problem; they're emotional, mad, sad, frustrated, or really super p___d off. The best individuals to handle these unpredictable callers are those with extraordinary people skills having the ability to be empathetic, calming and deliver the solution the caller needs.
