Supervisor's Tool Kit - February 2016
Whether you've been a supervisor
for years or you're new to the position, Melanie's Supervisor Tool Kit
is designed for you. With a questionnaire, reflection, debrief,
activities and discussion, this day offers lots of perspectives from
which to assess what you know and where you would like to grow.
Supervisors must balance a
variety of competing priorities. Fortunately, the necessary skills of an
effective supervisor can be learned. In this one-day program you will
learn about the five key supervisory skills and have a chance to put
them into practice during a game simulation. We'll also complete a
self-evaluation relating to the five skills and you'll develop a plan of
action by the end of the day that relates to the skills you'd like to
most improve in the following 90 days.
Join Melanie for the
Supervisor's Tool Kit at Hebrew Union College on February 10th from 9:00
am until 5:00 pm. There is free parking at HUC!
We need a minimum number of
registrations to hold the program and it's more fun if there are a
variety of people from different library systems. So call your friends
who work elsewhere and register today! (The games and interactive
activities just won't work with fewer than 15 people.)

Level-Up Lab: Women and Leadership
with some numbers: about 76 percent of U.S. women ages 25-54 are in the
news: In a large study by Catalyst (catalyst.org) it was found that
women ranked higher than men in 12 out of 16 essential leadership
competencies, providing that women have what it takes to lead. And women
want to lead in the same proportions as men.
Women, however, are still
underrepresented in leadership positions of all types. What's at work
here? We'll take a look at some factors from recent research studies and
then we'll look at how women can maximize their strengths and build
their skills to become effective leaders in any organization. We'll
spend more time on the areas chosen by participants so you'll have a
voice in picking the areas you'd like to work on most.
Join your peers for this
interactive two-hour workshop. Free.
Please register for online
classes at least two days before they take place.
