This is one of a three-part Leadership in Youth Services webinar series brought to you by the ALSC Managing Children’s Services Committee. Working with children in a library setting provides vast opportunities to create and hone leadership skills if you know where to find them. By cultivating these skills in yourselves and others, you will elevate your profession and your community by creating and implementing beneficial programs and services. This webinar will provide you with the tools you need to recognize these skills within yourself and within your role in the children's department. This webinar will provide real life examples of what leadership actually looks like in the everyday life of working in children's librarianship. Leadership can take many different forms including taking a risk on a program to fulfill a need in the community, embracing big picture thinking that can be broken down into manageable parts, or knowing how to work together as a team to achieve goals.

As a result of this webinar, students will be able to:

  1. Recognize their strengths and recognize their limitations and how to recognize this in others.
  2. Define their mission, both personally and as a part of an institution.
  3. Build programming and services that fill a need, take a risk and cultivate passion.
  4. Learn big picture thinking and how to break things up into workable actions.
  5. Learn how to work together as a team.
