Contact Centres Leadership And People With David Holmes

Business Problems Solved Podcast

In this episode Lee talks to David Holmes who has worked in Contact Centres and Customer Operations across Sales, Customer Service and Digital for some of the biggest companies in the UK, currently Operations Director at Cigna Healthcare. Lee and David chat about success and its definition, “harmonious friction”, the team leader role and how open mindedness can make the difference. KEY TAKEAWAYS Find the job that generates enthusiasm in you. Learn to enjoy challenges to your methods and thinking. Having an open mind and being willing to listen is important.  There is only negative feedback or constructive negative feedback. Generally it is about something that needs improvement. Positive feedback is affirmation.  Being a team leader is about being able to look forward to a destination and then planning on how to get there.  It's ok to bring people outside of the business to be critical and challenging in a way that those inside are too invested to achieve. BEST MOMENTS ‘Just when you think you’ve seen it all, someone comes along and shows you something new.’ – David ‘What is it that excites you about what you do and why? I love working with people, Lee.’ – David ‘That “harmonious friction” generates my passion and I hope I never lose it’ – David ‘Let’s talk about your past actually. What is it that people saw in you to allow you to create this history?’ – Lee  VALUABLE RESOURCES Business Problems Solved Podcast ABOUT THE HOST For the last 15 years, I have been a multi-sector internal or external business improvement consultant, building the improved capability of individuals, teams and businesses.

Ep. 31 Bahamas Fishing Trip with David Holmes and Norm Yackle pt. 2

Catch My Drift

In Episode 31 we are joined again by David Holmes and Norm Yackle for the second half of our trip to the Bahamas. We struggled finding bonefish with unideal tides, limited range with a motor that guzzled gas, and no poling capability. But in true DIY fashion we found a silver lining and set our sites on different salt water species. I got the total Bahamian outdoor experience when I was invited to tag along for a wild hog hunt with our host, Don. This was truly a trip to remember!
