5) Who is a telesales supervisor and what are his job responsibilities?

For some telesales executives, the subsequent stage in their telesales career is to turn into a telesales supervisor. Responsibilities of a telesales supervisor include acting as a bridge between the telesales group and the upper administration, execution of new policies and tracking sales deals, managing employee leaves, holidays and carrying out administrative obligations. In particular, the supervisor’s responsibility is to encourage and motivate all the telesales representatives. 

A telesales supervisor who has really had telesales experience themselves may discover they are remarkably equipped for some aspects of this new position. For instance, the on-the-job trials and tribulations experienced by a telesales agent-turned-supervisor can be used to pass on counsel and help other telesales executives within the team to complete sales deals. 

Telesales supervisors also have the ability to communicate with both the upper administration and telesales executives, which may help the smooth execution of new policies. The telesales executive-to-supervisor move will certainly present new challenges, but it will also pave the way for a transition into the role of a manager in the years to come.
