A note from the speaker, Linda Bruno:
In this age of new leadership books being released every few hours (it seems!), it’s easy to get the impression that to be a great leader, you just follow a particular checklist of do’s and don’ts. Some seem to think it’s more about tactics. I think it’s about relationships!
I think you’ll agree that beginning with a deep understanding of you and those who follow you is the basis of effective leadership.
That’s why I would like to personally invite you to attend the ASCLA-sponsored workshop, “Knowing You, Knowing Them: The Secret to Successful Leadership,” which will be held at the Leadership Institute of the ALA Midwinter Conference in Philadelphia (9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 24, 2014). You can register here: http://alamw14.ala.org/register-now.
In this fun and interactive workshop, we’ll look at leadership through the “fuzzy” (and fun!) lens, rather than the “fact” lens: Do you really know yourself and how you lead? Do you understand those who work for you –how they move through this world? How is their perception different from yours?
Are you aware of your emotions and are you able to manage those emotions so that you can lead well?
Are you always frustrated trying to figure out how to “motivate them?” What if you can’t?
I hope you’ll get your conference experience off to a great start by joining me for this fast-paced program ~ I’d love to see you there!
