COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- International Customer Management Institute (ICMI), the leading global provider of comprehensive resources for customer management professionals, has announced the addition of two courses to its summer training symposium, taking  place June 18-21, 2013, in Chicago, IL.

Taking place at the Hyatt Lodge at McDonald's Campus, this event will mark the official launch of two newly developed training courses, Enabling Excellence through Strong Leadership, and Small Contact Center Workshop.

"Quality training is essential for customer service management success – especially for those expected to teach others," said Justin Robbins, Training and Development Manager for ICMI. "The focus of both newly-developed courses is to provide call center leaders with the necessary tools to achieve excellence within their centers."

Designed to arm call center professionals with leadership skills and strategies, Enabling Excellence through Strong Leadership will offer the skills necessary for such critical initiatives as planning and developing an effective strategy, creating a culture of engagement, supporting and managing organizational change.

Small Contact Center Workshop, meanwhile, will provide managers of small centers (50 seats or fewer) with indispensable tools, strategies and tips they can to help achieve greater performance.

"It is not uncommon for smaller centers to have limited resources, but still be required to accomplish the same level of excellence as a larger center, "said Robbins. "We at ICMI are charged with designing a curriculum that meets the needs of leaders across the board, and we are confident that Enabling Excellence through Strong Leadership, and Small Contact Center Workshop perfectly complement this undertaking."
