Be a Great Boss Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, January 8, 2020, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Moving into a library management position can feel like a daunting and solitary pursuit. If you’ve never managed a budget, supervised staff, or been responsible for strategic decisions, it can be easy to get overwhelmed.

In this workshop, library management expert Catherine Hakala-Ausperk will help you take charge of your development with a clear, focused, programmatic approach. Hakala-Ausperk, author of the bestselling Be a Great Boss—One Year to Success, will discuss how in one hour a week, you can become a great boss who leads effectively and manages staff with confidence. You’ll have a chance to interact with the presenter and get answers to your management questions. 

After participating in this workshop, you will:

  • Understand the subtle and unspoken aspects of what it means to be a boss
  • Have a clear path for your own professional development from a good to a great boss
  • Understand the fundamentals of supervising library staff
  • Understand how to balance your own professional development with your day-to-day responsibilities
