No Thanks! I Don’t Want to Learn Anything New!
January 15, 2014
In this Demco-sponsored webcast, Catherine Hakala-Ausperk from Libraries Thrive Consulting joins Demco’s Director of Industry Relations, Janet Nelson to discuss how leadership and staff alike can approach learning new skills and embracing change in a positive manner.
Every library has some form of new employee orientation, right? We know it’s important to get new staff members off on the right foot and to help them learn at least the basics of what they need to know. But then what? How can library leaders be certain their team members are keeping up with new demands, new community needs, new service options and new technology, especially when some are less willing than others to stretch and grow? And how can reluctant library staff energize themselves to take on new challenges? Learning is everyone’s responsibility!
This webinar will:
- Emphasize and support the need for ongoing skill development
- Offer realistic, applicable steps leaders can take to ensure a culture of development
- Suggest solutions to roadblocks, including apathy, to continued growth and development
- Offer practical advice and tips to help all staff get on the path to ongoing development … and stay there
