Contact centre staff face unique challenges in their role often due to the high work demands, managing challenging interactions, high levels of performance management, and limited development opportunities.

SuperFriend’s Positive Interactions for Contact Centre staff course provides practical skills to help them manage challenges in their role so they can thrive.

About this course

This course provides an ideal introduction to understanding mental illness aligned to FSC Standard 21, understanding risk and protective factors and strategies to manage and de-escalate challenging calls.

It builds the capability of contact centre staff to positively engage and interact more effectively with their customers, acknowledging the challenges to the role and that some interactions are more difficult than others.

Making a commitment to supporting workers in this area demonstrates that the organisation understands that their work is challenging and is here to support them, as well as investing in their professional development.

After completing this course, learners will have an increased understanding of mental health conditions, techniques to support positive communication, and considerations when speaking with someone in distress.

The optional workshop provides the opportunity to practice and embed the skills learnt in the online course, giving participants the confidence to recognise triggers and to manage and de-escalate challenging calls.
