Step 2:  Download "Leading For Results" Files

Below you will find two downloads for each Module.  These were originally developed in Microsoft Word but have since been moved to Powerpoint.  The goal was to make it easier to project in a large setting.  You can still do what you want, i.e. print these documents for binders if you prefer.

The first is the participants guide.  These are used by the trainee.  The second is the facilitator guide that goes with each corresponding Module and allows the trainer to use this as a guide when presenting.

Remember these modules can be used individually to train or coach on specific areas.  Also the modules work great in a staff meeting setting if you want to focus on one aspect of improvement.

This material works!  We (my team and I) used these to develop leaders for a very fast growing call center.  We needed a method to develop newly hired Supervisors.

Joe Guider             
     Sr. Consultant       

As a Sr Consultant, I work with many organizations that have Call Centers.  Many of them are faced with many problems.  But the biggest seems to be employee engagement.  Call Center Games is the first product I deply when assigned to fixing any Call Center.  This resource is excellent for creating an envirnment where the employees are excited and enjoy competiting with each other.  We literally see an improvement in all of the KPI's once Call Center Games is used.

As a supervisor in a BPO, I was always trying to find ways to improve my team's performance.  Call Center Games has helped me do that.  As a matter of fact, my team is one of the top performing teams in the center.  My group's morale is high, they laugh and achieve goals very easily.  I highly recommend Call Center Games.
