In this 60-minute webinar, we’re focusing on leadership skills that apply to everyone. Leadership is a necessary skill in all types of work in today’s libraries. Yet, many people think that they aren’t leaders for a variety of reasons. You may be surprised to learn that leadership is something that ALL of us can learn and in which ALL of us can become skilled. You may be doing things now that others associate with leadership. In this interactive session, you will learn about the research on behaviors of effective leaders and identify your leadership strengths. Walk away with strategies and a plan to grow yourself and others in leadership behaviors.
