10 Success Habits of Top Teleprofessionals
You are the hub of the office — the front line of defense. The first person most people come into contact with and the real face of the company. You are vital, and the impression you make absolutely matters!
And you’re also really, really busy. You have to handle a high volume of callers, discovering what — and who — they need, all while juggling the requests of walk-ins, helping internal office staff, completing daily paperwork, and, let’s face it, sometimes even trying to find the answers to questions that are just frankly bizarre. When you spend most of your day on the phone, balancing it all can be a real challenge!
So how do you make sure you always come across as friendly, professional, and helpful on the phone — even when you’re doing a million things and the world around you is begging for your attention?
Your value system and capacity to believe strongly in what you do and who you represent
A tendency to increase determination in the face of resistance, to be direct, to be willing to proactively support that which you believe to be right
Your ability to use verbal language to accurately and interestingly convey messages; to be straightforward in meaning and choice of words while holding the attention of your listener
