Coffee Time Links – May 22

Cwg_coffee_cup_lr_8 Good Monday Morning! Grab a cup o’ joe and ease into the week with the following links:

  • You need a chuckle to start the week? Check out Judson Laipply’s routine The Evolution of Dance.
  • Alert reader Dan Obregon of Estara sent me this article about some software they’re unveiling which will improve the "click to call" experience used on many websites like Amazon.
  • Douglas Hanna over at Service Untitled has been working on a great series focusing on dealing with angry customers and customer complaints. He gives us a little advice a la the Godfather to "keep our enemies closer".
  • Heidi Miller had an interesting post that gives a different perspective to all those, uh, "filler words" we, um, use, um, y’ know, when we speak? A must for all call coaches.
  • Like many offices, call centers are understandably filled with cynics, pessimists, and defeatists. I’m always trying to spread a little hope and light wherever I go. My optimistic friend Starbucker introduced me to Lucy McDonald this week and her post "How to Think Like an Optimist". Thanks!

    Keep spreadin’ the good word Tom! It’s just like Churchill said – “For myself I am an optimist – it does not seem to be much use being anything else”. Thanks for the link.

    Thanks! As a child my mother used to complain at how pessimistic I was. I’m living proof that you CAN be converted to a “glass half full” disciple!
