“Really good, well paced, informative. I enjoyed it, and most importantly will use it”

“The practical exercises help me recognise what a good tool this is”

NC, Learning & Development Training Lead


Our Coaching for call quality training revitalises coaching conversations that takes place in contact centres.

Coaching in a contact centre can build employee confidence and wellbeing, people engagement, job satisfaction and improve the customer experience.

All too often it may become a “score”- a filling of a form and some feedback which is crushing for the agent, and which won’t improve morale in the centre.

Our Contact Centre Coach Development Programme helps coaches to have conversations which bring about change and improvements in performance.

What you will get from Intelligent Dialogue Coaching for Call Quality Training

Tailored to your requirements, and the way you coach within your contact centre, our training and development programmes are designed with your outcomes in mind. Tell us the challenges you are facing with call quality and coaching in your contact centres, and we’ll help you work to where you want to be.

Intelligent Dialogue training is highly interactive, participative and relevant to team leaders and quality coaches, it will support coaches and develop skills through:-

exploring their credibility with agents – how will an advisor react to and respond to them as coaches? especially if there has been a peer relationship
discussing how to get agents to engage with the coaching session, especially if morale has dipped
understanding how to make call quality coaching a positive experience which the advisor values
defining where their role starts and ends, and where it overlaps with the responsibility of the team leader
building a coaching relationship so that agents don’t just pay lip service to the coaching; saying the right things but going through the motions in terms of the application of their action plan
identifying the locus of responsibility; what if there is no improvement in “call evaluation ” scores after coaching – who is at “fault” the agent or the coach?
developing their coaching style
understanding the difference between feedback and coaching
recognising their roles and responsibilities– the boundaries with performance management, and the role in developing skills, knowledge and attitudes
helping agents to engage with the work they do, and the customers they have conversations with
developing your standards – the quality of your conversations as a focus for a change in behaviour
strengthening the tools in your coaching toolkit
creating change – the difference between capability and willingness
assessing resourcefulness in the people you are coaching and how to adapt your style accordingly
structuring the coaching “meeting” – making things CLEARER
setting the right tone for your coaching conversations
handling resistance
helping people develop skills and behaviours which are appropriate for their role
developing action plans that bring about change
connecting conversations and action plans; the importance of follow up and the difference a call quality coach can make

How long will it take?

1 – 2  days.

The 2 day course has lots of practice, observation and feedback.

We can also support coach development with a follow up 2 hr coaching observation and coaching session per participant sending the signal how important coaching is, that you coach your coaches.


If you would like to improve your teams coaching skills then get in touch to discuss the detail of what you’d like to achieve. We’ll discuss with you our approach to achieving your objectives, how long the training will take and the investment you’ll need to make.
