Monthly monitoring and coaching sessions are critical for an agent's success and a great way for supervisors to have one-on-one, personalized contact with call center agents. Agents really appreciate receiving individual attention to learn about what they are doing well and the areas where they can improve. Coaching also demonstrates that both the supervisor and the company are deeply committed to the agent's success. Monthly coaching sessions, combined with pay or compensation that is tied directly to performance, communicates to call center agents that their contributions are integral to the call center and the company.
