For many leaders, keeping agents engaged is an ongoing challenge. And when turnover is constant, it's hard to maintain positive momentum. That can spill over to other areas of your business.
But with so many organizational priorities at play and limited resources, what happens when the purse strings tighten and goals around service level prevail? Do your efforts on agent engagement take a hit? As a leader and changemaker, how do you keep these fundamental initiatives afloat?
This topic of leading change is universal, irrespective of industry. Because it's not enough to just have the vision, the real work comes from putting that vision in action. In our "Lens of Leadership" series, our hope is to provoke interesting dialogue by bringing in our own internal changemakers to spark a different perspective.
Please join us for a discussion on leading agent engagement, in order to:
