In this webinar, we will share proven strategies for creating an environment for productive coaching conversations, discuss best practices on how to give and receive feedback, and walk through scenarios of feedback gone wrong (and how to repair relationships). We will draw examples from several library organization structures, ask participants to reflect on their experiences as both deliverers and recipients of feedback, and provide resources to support participants in future feedback conversations.
In this webinar, Gregg Dodd, Director of Marketing, Columbus Metropolitan Library, Columbus, Ohio, will provide an overview of a shooting incident that took place at CML’s Main Library and how he executed his crisis communications plan. He’ll share practical strategies that will help libraries develop and implement a plan and navigate the complexities of message dissemination during a crisis.
This webinar offers participants a new perspective on challenges and opportunities in their workplace and field, and tools to continue to grow, whatever your current position. The webinar is based on presenter's new book: Be Opportunity Minded: Start Growing Your Career Now (to be published by ALA Editions in January 2019)
LLAMA Webinar: “Burnout Prevention and Mitigation: The Role of Values, Communication, and Job Crafting”
In our fast-paced libraries, workplace burnout is all too common. Add to that the stressors of the coronavirus pandemic and it can feel like almost like an inevitability. While we have no magic bullet to prevent or immediately banish burnout, it can be effectively minimized and prevented via recognition, skilled communication, job crafting, and building alignment between each employee’s work and values. Library administrators as well as those not in supervisory roles can have meaningful results using this unique approach.
LLAMA webinar: “From Transactional to Interactional: Leading in Frontline Public Services in Academic & Public Libraries”
“From Transactional to Interactional: Leading in Frontline Public Services in Academic & Public Libraries” This webinar will focus on changing service models, how libraries manage the change, and how to guide staff through the process.
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?

The rapid growth of library makerspace services present both challenges and opportunities for all libraries and their users. There are many considerations for libraries as they plan and manage maker services, from how to get started, to managing and growing existing services, to developing maker programming. Connecting with others in the library makerspace community can be extremely helpful as we navigate this new and evolving area of library services.
In this webinar, presenters will define the concepts of succession planning and onboarding. Through two case studies, attendees will learn how these concepts informed a supervisor’s hiring and onboarding process and what the positive impact was on supervisees in the first year.
