#GuildChat for 09/21/18: Collaboration Tips and Strategies

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, September 21st at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is on Collaboration Tips and Strategies

Thanks to Nick Floro for suggesting this week’s topic!

Collaboration has had a lot of attention by organizations over the past decade. With the advent of social technology we now have easier ways to collaborate and beyond just collaborating with our own teams.


Join us this week as we look at the strategies, techniques and technologies around effective collaboration and the recent backlash around too much collaboration resulting in burnout.

So look forward to a deep discussion around the strengths of various tools, the challenges of more democratic approaches to work and the idea of collaboration beyond the team (clients, stakeholders and customers too).
