Service Safari: Learning from the Best
Friday, February 9, 8:30 am-4:00 pm (Offsite)
In this all-day tour and program we’ll see service models in multiple settings and explore how they can be applied to our libraries and customers. In the morning we’ll visit local retail businesses to see how they excel in customer service. We’ll then go to the Anythink Wright Farms library to have guided discussions on what we’ve learned and how we can develop new service models for our own libraries. So, put on your pith helmet, bring your flashlight, and discover what’s needed to think about a change in service approaches! The Institute is designed to increase proficiency in 2 of LLAMA’s 14 foundational leadership competencies: Foward Thinking and Team Building.
