For Immediate Release

Oct. 5, 2009

The Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) has announced a line-up of three interactive webinars designed to meet the needs of experienced leaders and managers at the dean, director, department head and branch manager level. Each of the 60-90 minute programs will feature library consultant Pat Wagner of Pattern Research.

“These short webinars provide materials drawn from many sources and offer an interdisciplinary approach to leadership topics with material from outside the library world that can help participants solve complex problems. Emphasis is on practical applications rather than academic models - how-to leadership above the basics that are provided in many leadership institutes,” Wagner said.

“The Executive-Decision Maker’s Secret Weapon – How You Can Make Better Choices with

the Use of Graphic Models,” Wed, Oct 21, 2:00-3:30 pm, Central Time.

“Learn the Supervisor’s Balancing Act – How You Can Bring Out the Best in Your Top

People Without Micromanagement,” Tues, Nov 3, 2:00-3:30 pm, CT

“Make Your Library Dreams Come True –

How You Can Use Project Management Techniques to Write a Strategic Plan,” Mon., Nov.16, 2:00-3:30 pm, CT

Registration for each webinar is $39 for LLAMA members and $49 for all others.
