Upcoming Lightning Pro Webinars

Tips, Tricks & Troubleshooting for Skype for Business

Technology allows us to connect with our virtual team, but all too often we do not use the technology to its fullest capacity.

Why take this webinar?

50% of virtual teams fail due to a lack of understanding of how to work virtually (Gartner Group), and that includes knowing how to leverage the technology at their disposal to its fullest extent. By mastering the basic features of Skype for Business, you can take your team to the next level.

At the end of the session the participants will be able to:

• Identify the best practices for Skype for Business
• Explore the most commonly used features
• Demonstrate how to foster interactivity and collaboration

Advanced Skype for Business

To maximize Skype for Business as the flexible, scalable, collaboration driver that it is, users must be able to leverage the tools available.

Why take this webinar?
This webinar is for teams that are comfortable with the basics of Skype for Business but still struggle with the more advanced features.

At the end of the session the participants will be able to:

• Utilize Skype for Business tools and a wealth of Microsoft integrations already on your desktop to drive interaction, rapid feedback, and effective brainstorming
• Explore a full range of screen share options, voice, IM, and video displays to increase attention, engagement, and interaction in meetings, training programs, and webinars
• Train your team to “run the screen” and experience collaborative editing of a colleague’s file for quick updates and productive meetings

SharePoint for Virtual Teams

SharePoint is a powerful communication and collaboration platform for virtual teams, but only if the people using it do so effectively.

Why take this webinar?
This webinar will train your team to become SharePoint pros, using it to increase efficiency, productivity and rapport.


At the end of the session the participants will be able to:

• Slash email volume
• Streamline team discussions
• Maintain file security
• Organize and manage projects, including tasks, progress, risks and issues

Jumpstart Your Online Training

Online training is an attractive, cost-effective way to get virtual teams up to speed – but if your communication strategies and course materials are designed for the physical classroom, you’re setting your team up to fail.

Why take this webinar? This webinar will teach you how to train effectively in the virtual environment, resulting in higher recall and long-term, sustainable learning outcomes.

At the end of the session the participants will be able to:

• Describe and experience two warm-up activities to jump-start a session
• Show how to deliver meaningful, impactful content in a fun, engaging way as soon as attendees join the session
• Learn how to keep attendees’ attention throughout the program and close each session with impact


These sessions are targeted towards virtual team leaders and managers who work and lead remote teams.
