New programs, new technology, new spaces — Moments of library opportunity. Chances to engage patrons, rekindle relationships, and demonstrate library’s value and impact. These activities require effective, mindful leadership. All too often we keep our heads down, focused on the nitty gritty of finances, project plans, and development or, mindlessly react to situations that call for more presence, authenticity and yes, courage — forgetting that long-term success and future funding depend upon community-connected, value-driven leadership.
How do we ensure our leaders are capable of connecting key community concerns to our development efforts with passion and integrity? How do we demonstrate accountability to our management, funders, and constituencies? Join Mindful Leadership practitioner and consultant, Kym Cadle, and Innovative Business of Library Consultants for a targeted, tactical journey through mindful leadership techniques.
Walk away with actionable strategies you can employ in service of reliably and transparently leading successful, community-connected library transformation at your institution.
