Leading Your Library to Excellence (SEFLIN)

If you’ve been in a leadership position for more than a few days, there’s one thing you know for sure – there are no “one size fits all” answers when it comes to being a great leader – but understanding our employees and ourselves is a huge step in the right direction!

We’ll start our leadership workshop with a fun look in the mirror – who is that looking back?  Do you really know yourself?  Then we’ll delve further into the mysteries of personalities to discover how our employees’ unique personalities contribute to nearly everything that happens in our workplace.

Once we know who’s who on our staff, we’ll move on to the topic of communication.  Some of us are communicating 24/7 it seems, and yet we don’t always do it as well as we would like.  What kind of communicator are you?  Do you score a “perfect 10” in listening?  If not (and most of us don’t!), we’ll learn how to do it better – and why that matters.

As we move through the day, we’ll proceed to the really fun stuff – dealing with change – yikes!  How can we not only “deal with change,” but become champions of change so that our libraries really do live up to being organizations of excellence?

We’ll round out the day by having a rousing roundtable discussion on how to create the ultimate workplace – one that exemplifies a motivating environment!

Don’t miss this opportunity to spend time reflecting on the human side of leading.  You’ll come away refreshed and rejuvenated – with valuable information that will help you perform your job more effectively.  And that makes work more fun – for everyone!
