Find the best talent for your library
Like most organizations, a library is only as good as the people who work for it. For library supervisors and managers the ability to select and support the right staff is among their most important skills. But all too frequently it can be a supervisor’s greatest weakness. How can you as a supervisor or hiring manager make sure you are hiring the best people?
LLAMA's webinar “Managing the Talent: A Holistic Look at Personnel Management,” will show you how to identify talent, find the right fit, bring people on board, and identify and grow their strengths in order to keep them engaged, thriving, and focused on the future.
Attendees will gain:
- An understanding of the key skills of effective library workers
- Tips for identifying the skills during the interview
- The importance and some approaches for onboarding new staff
- How to diagnose and coach underperforming staff
- How to have a respectful but firm talk about a problem
This webinar addresses three of LLAMA’s 14 foundational leadership competencies: communication skills, team building (personnel), and conflict resolution (personnel).
