There are two types of energy: Catabolic energy (levels 1 and 2) is the draining and destructive energy. Anabolic energy (levels 3 to 7) is the constructive and healing energy.
Level 1: The state of being a victim. In other words, where the customer or the customer service agent feels like there is no solution.
Level 2: The Antagonist - Seeing everything through the lens of conflict. This is the 'I win, you lose' state.
Level 3: The Rationalizer - People start to take responsibility for their thoughts, feelings, and actions. Therefore, this is where collaboration begins.
Level 4: The Helper - Empathy kicks in. This level is about providing service and making sure that customers win. People at this level are prone to becoming overwhelmed from giving too much.
Level 5: The Collaborator - Whatever challenges your customer is facing faces, you always find an opportunity for improvement and provide a win-win solution.
Level 6: The Connector - This is where customer service is there to support the customers and connect with other departments in the company who can help.
Level 7: The Creator State - This is where winning and losing is an illusion. It is knowing that you are doing the best you can no matter the result.
Quote:“Everything is energy. Above all, it is important to understand the energy that you and others bring to the situation.”
