Team Leader Customer Service/Contact Center Head
Last active: 4 months ago
My objective is to work in an organization where I can develop my career and contribute to help individuals and the society and enhance their capabilities. I hope to grow with the impeccable information the company will provide me with. I would love to be involved immensely with its operations.
I am a flexible individual as I have worked in a 24 hour shift operation. I am also able to multi task and take up more work load when required. I have good work ethic and reliable.
I am analytic, adaptive and investigative. These three attributes enable me to identify customer challenges through trend analysis, incorporate feasible mitigation measures for damage control and offering personalized services to meet individual customer needs while keeping with the organization standards in the quality of service delivery. I am assertive and self motivated which helps me in forging forth towards accomplishing delegated tasks and projects within an environment with limited resources.
Being emotionally passive, helps in maintaining my composure during demanding times and also when tending to irate customers either on phone or directly. With this, I am able to handle team work pressure, the differences in ideas and still maintain group focus to assure successful project completion.
