Many library professionals are placed into management roles with little or no guidance because there isn’t time for training or their position is newly created. Since Librarian skills are different from Managerial skills, these newly minted managers may struggle getting a handle on their new positions.
This session covers tips on where to start, how to deal with feelings of being overwhelmed, and how to make the transition from colleague to manager. Filled with stories and anecdotes of personal experience, and drawing on advice from seasoned pros, this program will help managers feel more confident as they take on their new roles in the library.
Join Jennifer for this practical and interactive webinar and let your inner manager flourish.
