“Set one training goal each week achievable in one hour.” This simple directive was given to every staff member of one Utah library in September 2011. The result just one year later? A sustainable, positive culture transformation. The mechanism, called “Self-Directed Achievement”, is a consistent, agile, individualized approach to staff development in a climate of constant change. It champions the basic library principle of lifelong learning. It is achievable for every individual with any level of expertise. And its impact will ripple through your organization from the staff work room to public lounge areas. Following this webinar, you will understand the model, mechanics, individual accountability, and supervisory responsibility involved in this remarkable method… and you’ll want to do it too.


Presented by: From Tooele City Library (UT), Jami Carter, Director; Steve Peay, Library Supervisor; and Rachel Gull, Library Supervisor.
