#GuildChat for 12/7/18: Non-L&D Specific Work Challenges

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, December 7th at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is on Non-L&D Specific Work Challenges.


Time management, scope creep, office politics, remote working, access to people and resources, managing people and software upgrades are some common, not L&D specific issues that can impact the work we do and the work we do for others.

In this week’s #GuildChat we examine some of the stickier issues AROUND our work, those things that are not JUST L&D challenges but work in general challenges.

Join us to share with the community your ideas and solutions and maybe pick up a few of your own!
