Servant Leadership in Your Library: Register by June 21 for leadership development workshop hosted by ASCLA

ALA Annual Conference Chicago logo

“Servant Leadership” – what does it mean, particularly in a library setting? And why should it matter to you?

And you’re absolutely right. But in this ASCLA workshop, Servant Leadership in Your Library, you’ll learn how to integrate “serving” with “leadership” in a way that will positively influence how your library is perceived by patrons, staff members, and your community.You may be thinking, “Isn’t ‘serving’ what we do every day?”

In this full-day program hosted by experience trainer Linda Bruno, rather than a “cookie cutter” approach to leadership, we’ll delve into who you are as a leader. How can becoming a servant leader change the dynamics of your entire organization – from the inside out? We’ll discuss the importance of understanding the needs of your staff, helping them grow personally and professionally, being open to their feedback and input, and valuing their contribution to your organization. We’ll each develop our own list of what changes we want to incorporate to become servant leaders, and how we can help others in our library do the same.

Through discussions, group work, games, and assessments, you’ll come away from this session with a fresh perspective on your own leadership style – and ideas for incorporating servant leadership into your own organization.

Whether you’re a mid-level manager or a library director, understanding how servant leadership can benefit your library will help you become the leader you were meant to be.
