We’re down to our final two episodes! With our penultimate episode, we’re chatting about supporting your team both at work and in life. As a manager, it can be tough supporting a teammate going through something big outside of work, especially if you’re a newer manager. From happy moments like a new baby or a more sorrowful moment like a death in their family, it’s your job to support the team member as well as the rest of the team.
With only three episodes left, we wanted to take a look into the future of customer support. Are the bots coming for our jobs? Will you be doing the same job in ten years? Let’s take a look into that crystal ball and talk through what we expect to happen.
This week, we’re talking about customer support career paths. We all agree that a career in customer support is worthwhile. But what does that look like?
We’ve seen more and more companies set up support as a reactive, first line of defence. Meanwhile, success teams don’t handle cases like that and focus instead on helping the customer achieve their goals by using your product. Is that a smart way to split up your team when it comes to onboarding new customers?
When it comes to customer onboarding, we’ve seen a growing trend of the white glove approach. Dedicated account managers, personalized training, and anything else that you can tailor to that one customer in hopes of convincing them to buy.
On this episode, we’ll look at how successful the white glove approach really is.
