We were speaking with a friend from one of our fortune 500 clients the other day and she said, “You know what? I just don’t like Lync. It always tells me that my coworkers are there, but I’ll ping them, and I get no response. So I spend the time to walk across the building to their desk to find out from their officemate that they’ve gone for the day. It’s unreliable and I just don’t use it.” This conversation reminded us that presence is a powerful tool— one that often gets misused. The following blog article, Take Back Your Presence, was written for the Lync Team Blog by our own Cari Dick, Director UC Adoption Practice, discussing the fundamentals of presence and its importance in collaboration at work. It is a great reminder that good presence manners never go out of style.
