In our continuing effort to inform LL&F readers about leadership training opportunities, I want to tell you about a fabulous opportunity I have been helping plan.
So You Want to Be A Director? is a preconference being held on April 5 at the PLA 2016 Conference in Denver, CO. This workshop will feature some of the most seasoned and innovative directors in the public library world. Participants will not only learn practical information they can use right away, but also leadership theories and the soft skills all directors need to succeed. Our group of experts will discuss topics such as emergent leadership, organizational health, and strategic planning. This is in addition to the breakout tables where directors will discuss HR, budgeting, customer service, programming, media relations and more. So if you are a new director or just want to start gathering the skills needed to be one, this is the perfect opportunity for you!
The first few LL&F readers who attend will get a special prize! Just say to me the secret phrase “Yes, I will buy you a delicious Denver beer.”
