Preface

Why I Have Written This Book
A few years back, during a discussion on the inauguration of a call centre, little did people realize that this so-called 'Silly' telephonic industry would one day become the backbone of our economy.

In life, most of us tend to drift, moving from one location to another, without actually looking back and seeing why we did so. We might drift for a number of reasons, some of which could well be a search for better opportunities or failure to cope with increasing work pressure, or some personal problem, or simply the inability to take the right decision. This is what I refer to as folding our hands in front, like a born loser and allowing Fate to govern our lives. In this long journey of life, some succeed while some lose, blaming it all on Fate, but most of us spend our lifetime cribbing and crying for things we have craved for but failed to achieve. Unfortunately, none of us try to sit back and figure out the actual reasons behind our so-called failures.

I would like you all who think likewise to read this book, as I firmly believe that its contents would transform your negativity into positive thinking. To achieve success in any sphere, one has to devote time and energy and be willing to accept the fact that every one is not born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

This book is meant for you all, but specially for those who hope to pursue the so-called fluctuating career in a cell centre seriously. The very fact that you have the patience to go through its contents clearly signifies your willingness to lead a much happier and contented life than the one you are leading at present.

Through this book I would like you all youngsters who wish to enter this call-centre industry to get an in-depth insight into how its machinery actually works besides providing you with the tools required to avoid any inconvenience while making an entry and the ingredients which would enable you to rise sky high in the shortest possible time.

What This Book is About
In a layman's term this book is a step-by-step guide to success, providing information on how to succeed just as a mason lays one brick atop another to construct a building of his dream. The book provides all those tools that are needed to have a successful career in a call centre, and offers suggestions to help you build a more enriching and rewarding life.

In a professional's term, this book is an enriching module. It as a structured procedure which when followed diligently provides you with a tailor-made path to tread upon, the end of which results in a successful career and a fulfilling life. In my opinion it is nothing but a treasure-trove waiting for you to punch in the right combinations. By flipping through its pages, you would not only realize you dream to succeed but also understand the nitty-gritty involved in this booming industry called the call-centre industry.

Thus, this book allows you to move a step ahead merely from dreaming of success to actually unlocking the fire within to become a successful person.

Also, I have narrated real-life incidents to explain various situations while trying to describe a particular aspect of the industry. This style of writing, I'm sure, would appeal to those who wish to steer clear of textbook reading. In short, this book is nothing short of a collection of my personal experiences while dealing with various situations in a call centre.

What This Book Contains
This book has all those ingredients which when mixed in the correct proportion would allow you to succeed in you job in a call centre. It would help you establish new goals, develop a positive attitude, remove the glitches that weigh you down and give you an insight into the booming call-centre industry. As rightly mentioned in the title, my book would help you overcome all odds and emerge a true winner. I am also confident that it would help remove the myth that a call centre is only a mere stepping stone until something better comes your way; on the contrary, it makes you realize that it can well be a dream job which promises the kind of money you could ever dream of making anywhere else.

This book will help you to:
Get an in-depth knowledge of the booming BPO industry.
Carve a career for yourself by following the steps enunciated for success.


Transform your attitude into a positive one.
Enhance your self-esteem.
Accomplish more than you can ever think of achieving.
Last but not the least, my book gives a hint of the ongoing frauds linked with this booming industry. Although you may have read a lot about this in the morning papers. But what is written there can well be compared to gold dust…the gold has yet to be discovered.

Caution
Though this book is a racy reader, where the reader simply flips through the pages in haste, sometimes smiling, sometimes brooding, while awaiting the climax with anticipation, it however, demands complete attention from its reader. It should be read with the intent of grasping its contents and enhancing the skills, which guarantee a lifetime of success. if I were in your place, I would read the first chapter, absorb its contents and then move on to the next level.

To make the text lucid, I have simplified the language and given examples from realistic situations arising out of natural circumstances that would prove beneficial for both you as well as your superior.

The concepts in this book are a recollection of my personal experiences amassed while working for different call centres in a period spanning a little over three years and I would appreciate if these chapters are well used as an exercise worksheet. Jot down the points you consider important and make liberal use of your pencil or pen to highlight the vital paragraphs.

As you advance through the chapters, seek a second opinion. Discuss all you have learnt in the first chapter with your colleague or superior. If you feel hesitant in discussing the matter with him or her, take it up with your spouse or close friend and learn what they have to say about it. In my opinion, sharing your concerns with a close one not only helps you overcome your weaknesses but also enables you to further develop your self-esteem.

Chalk Out Your Own Strategy
Like it or not, this book it meant for those who have a will to succeed and not for those who love whiling away their time. The main purpose of this book is to enable you to develop a strategy for yourself; a plan of action which would help you analyse the following:

Why do you wish to join a call centre"
What according to you are the tools required for success?
What time-frame would you give for climbing each rung to success?

Do not forget to maintain a scrapbook handy to jot down your action plan. Divide your page into three parts - your aims, the time-frame required and finally your achievements in the stipulated time-period.

Believe me, by the time you finish reading my book, not only would you get a better idea of this booming industry but your personal notes would become the building blocks on which would rest the tower of your success.

Many of the problems enumerated in the following chapters have been faced by me while working as an agent or looking for a job in the right call centre. The solutions offered would help you avoid repeating such silly mistakes and guarantee a lifetime of success in the shortest possible time-span.

Back Of The Book

With the coming of call centres to India, a marked change is visible in the society - there's more money, more job opportunities, more fun and more suspense. Alas, people, both young and old alike, still view this profession with a suspicious eyes It's time they learnt the truth.

By reading this book, elders will learn what their children do while working night shifts; calling agents can enhance their careers further; the young aspirants may find it easy to decide whether to take up a job in a call centre or not. With real life examples, the book is more interesting and also keeps the reader in tune with reality. So go ahead and read the experiences of a call-centre agent…

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
