If I’m being 100 percent honest, one thing I’ve always dreaded about my job is working with stakeholders and subject matter experts who tend to be more difficult.

So, for this month’s Ask a Trainer video, I’m answering your questions about working with difficult stakeholders and subject matter experts. Enjoy!
