#GuildChat for 08/25/17: Skilling Up!

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, August 25th at 11AM PT/2PM ET. This week’s topic is Skilling Up.

We know we can’t turn to our employers alone to help us stay current today, this is especially true for organizational L&D (really? just how many company created courses or programs have you taken on ID?)

In this weeks #GuildChat we return to a popular discussion on exploring the ways we are independently and interdependently learning, improving and stretching our knowledge and skills. Join us to share the approaches, resources and events that continually help you stay skilled up and learn of others from the Guild Community!

Prospective questions:

Q1. How do you know you are skilled at something?
Q2. How do you know if a skill you possess is relevant?
Q3. If you’ve had a skill or process that you used become out of date, how did you shift? Was this easy or hard? Why?
Q4. Do you ever build skills for future use? If so, what do you want to work on next?
Q5. How do the needs of your org today impact your decisions about which skills to learn next?
Q6. How do you prioritize what topics you want to learn about to keep your work skills up-to-date?
Q7. Social and informal learning are widely used IN the workplace, how do you leverage these?
Q8. What sources do you regularly look to to learn new work skills or concepts?
