Every call center has some element of a communication culture. It may resemble a prison, a bank, a basketball arena, Disneyland. Today, when you walk on your floor, your various senses can recognize your communication culture. Your senses can be trained to be as attuned to communication culture as they are to food, body language, music, sights. The important thing to remember is that every call center does embody communication culture. Most call centers do not embody a world-class communication culture.
