Stepping up as a leader can be challenging when you are working as frontline staff. Every library staff person, no matter their supervisory capacity or place on the organizational hierarchy, can be a leader. Through this webinar, we will discuss reframing leadership by tapping into creativity, hobbies and personal networks to influence without positional authority. Participants will learn about letting go and creating space to innovate in teen services and beyond.
