#GuildChat for 11/01/19: How to Put New Ideas Into Action

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, November 1st at 11am PT / 2pm ET. This week’s chat is on How to Put New Ideas Into Action.

We all get inspired and sometimes that inspiration can move us to action. Take going to a conference like DevLearn for example where session after session could provide you a quick hit to a whole new strategy! But enthusiasm isn’t enough and well, talk is cheap so how do you take something new and actually make it work?


Join us this week as we talk about how you can put new ideas to work in your organization. What are the steps you take? Who do you include and what happens when there are hiccups along the way?

Join us this week as we talk about applying new knowledge in our workplace efforts.
