Call Center Training & Coaching for Frontline Service Management

A Strong Frontline is Key to Service Excellence

Frontline service leaders are the linchpin within a contact center. They are responsible for coaching and developing customer service associates who in turn, build the brand, company reputation, and the trust of existing and prospective customers. But frontline professionals often lack the proper training, tools and reporting to provide the level of support their teams require.

The Northridge Group understands the practical implications of shifting priorities and challenges within a contact center and we have the experience and expertise to help you overcome them.

How We Provide Value

The Northridge Group’s Frontline Excellence Programs help organizations improve critical service levels, drive an enhanced customer and employee experience and enable consistency across the organization for lasting, scalable results. Key outcomes include:

  • Building and strengthening frontline leadership (manager/director) capabilities
  • Enhancing performance management through common cascaded metrics and a dashboard
  • Developing a process for regular dialogues on performance through daily huddles and visual display boards
  • Creating structured coaching through dedicated coaching time, different coaching formats, and calibrated call evaluation
  • Identifying process improvement opportunities and embedding a root cause problem-solving approach at the frontline

Our goal is a seamless partnership to help define the strategic vision for a continuous improvement program among the frontline service teams, strengthen the coaching and management model and ensure adoption by and capability transfer to the organization for sustained performance.

What Makes Us Different

There is No Substitute for Effective Coaching and Training

“The program has been very effective so far. The huddles allow us to review important updates as a team, which allows us to be more effective on the phones. The one-on-ones have given me the opportunity to discuss getting licensed with my manager as well as getting assistance with more complex cases that I am working on and need help with.”
