CHICAGOJoin Core on January 24, 2023, at 1 p.m. CT for the webinar “Best of Core Forum: Inclusive Team Visioning: Beyond the Groan Zone.” Structural changes in library leadership and services impact how librarians experience their work. When faced with externally imposed change, these presenters’ public services team did more than adapt and navigate. They partnered management with organizational development to build a more inclusive team through shared visioning. Recognizing that everyone’s experience of change is unique, they employed a variety of tools and techniques to discover factors underlying motivation and resistance. The two presenters, both experienced academic library administrators, will share how they built their leadership skills to move a large team through change while respecting the identities, professional values, and experiences of each individual in the team.

This webinar was previously presented in-person as a session at the 2022 Core Forum. We are hosting this webinar, with the session adapted and presented live as a virtual event, to extend its reach.
