CHICAGO - Have you ever tried to write a how-to manual or other documentation for your library’s processes? Have you gotten overwhelmed trying to figure out where to start, or too busy keeping up with your day-to-day work to take a step back and document it?

All too often professional development related to feedback focuses on how we give feedback as managers, and less often about how we solicit feedback to improve our own performance, and perhaps more importantly, how we respond and take action based on what we've heard. The Library Leadership and Management Association will present, "Soliciting Feedback: Up, down, and sideways," on Wednesday, August 12, from 1:30-3:00 pm, Central Time.
