Skype for Business for Leaders
Format: Online Training/On Demand
Many organizations are moving or have already made the shift to using Skype for Business for online meetings and collaboration; but many are having a hard time getting their project managers, leaders and teams to use it to its fullest.
And it’s often because companies will roll out a tool, spend a very short amount of time explaing how the tool will work and then leaving them to their own devices. And unfortunately, this results in employees who either don’t use it at all, or more likely, use only a fraction of its capabilities. This means the organization doesn’t get a return on its investment, and people aren’t getting the advantages it was meant to bring them.
People need to understand the context of the tool. How does it apply to their work and what problems will it solve for them? They need to see it used in context, and compare it to their current experience. They need to practice and receive feedback when learning.
Studies show that adoption and utilization rapidly increase when people are exposed to the tool by a live instructor, and are shown the tool used in a real work context. That’s where Skype For Leaders comes in.
