Other Duties as Assigned: Training Your Staff for Evolving Responsibilities Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, July 15, 2020, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

With budget cuts and shrinking staffs, library staff members are taking on responsibilities for which they have no formal training. For managers, this creates a unique challenge—how do we train staff members to take on new responsibilities while ensuring that day-to-day operations are unaffected?

In this event, you’ll learn how to help your staff utilize their natural talents in order to work effectively outside of their areas of formal training and experience. This workshop provides you with practical tools for training your staff cross-functionally and giving them the motivation they need to gain new skills.
 

After participating in this event, you will:

  • Know how to identify and document your staff’s existing strengths and how you can expand them into new areas of responsibilities
  • Understand the basics of creating a new skills training plan for a specific staff member
  • Know best practices for dealing with staff members resistant to expanding their responsibility
  • Understand how to work with a staff member who doesn’t have a “natural feel” for a given area of responsibility
