From family members who mistakenly think we work in IT to work partners who think our job is just to turn PowerPoint decks into eLearning files, people outside of L&D don’t always have a good sense of what roles in L&D actually do. And while it can be mildly annoying when your great aunt thinks you teach small children and not adults, it can have a real impact on careers when a business partner you’re working with doesn’t understand what expertise you’re bringing to the table or when a L&D job posting covers substantially more than a single person can do on their own.

In this week’s #GuildChat we’ll talk about the challenges that come from misunderstandings about our roles and share ideas for what we can do – both as individuals and a professional community – to help others understand what we do (and don’t) do in our work.

Chat questions coming soon!
