PLA at 2014 ALA Annual Conference

2014 ALA Annual Conference logoPLA Preconference:
Creating a Collaborative Culture

Friday, June 27
8:30 AM–12:00 PM
Las Vegas Convention Center N256
Event Code: PLA3

Rewards or threats. Our brains look for them five times a second. That's the root of many difficult workplace situations. Come learn the transformative power of reframing failure, the true meaning of "yes, and" and the kinds of listening that change lives. In this session, we'll use applied improvisation to go from passive-aggressive to assertive, from blame to "I'm game." Instead of hearing "It's not my job!" you’ll start hearing "How do we do it?"


Cheryl Gould, Fully Engaged Libraries, Petaluma, Calif.
