CHICAGO — Navigating through the transition to a new job as a librarian can be an exciting experience, but it can also be a challenge. The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) will present “Transitioning to a new role: issues, best practices, and managing expectations”, on Dec. 3, at 1:30 – 3:00 PM (Central time). This webinar will help you learn how to start out on the right foot, manage relationships, maneuver within different organizational cultures, and handle delicate situations, while being open to new or unexpected opportunities. Three experts will discuss the perspectives of a new manager, a librarian in a new role, and an organizational development specialist, using an interview format and sharing engaging “stories from the front”.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Define what to expect from typical on-boarding programs and what to do if you aren't provided with much direction;
- Identify techniques for setting the right tone in new boss/subordinate relationships;
- Compare various types of organizational cultures so that you as a new employee can quickly develop an appropriate work style;
- Recognize the value of maintaining an open mind, even when your situation is not what you anticipated.
