After establishing themselves as positive, supported, directed bosses who can be trusted, what comes next? Great bosses need to get work done. In this webinar, the nuts and bolts of staffing, decision-making, problem solving, planning and budgeting will be covered. Then, growth has to keep happening. Also discussed will be resources great bosses can use to support ongoing growth throughout their career.

In this webinar, attendees will learn not how to do all the work that’s required to run a great library, but how to encourage, motivate, prepare and support their staff members to succeed in their roles, so that the whole team – and the library – can succeed.

This webinar will be of interest to future, new and longtime bosses alike. Leadership is a privilege and needs to be carefully prepared for, nurtured and never ignored.
