Coming to a library near you, Lead the Change is a leadership program that brings library thought leaders together to show participants how today’s top libraries are leading change and transforming their communities. Attendees are lead through a series of exercises to help bridge key thoughts to individual leadership objectives to help them harness their ideas.
Produce your own action planner for success: Participants will receive an action planner and work individually and in a group setting during reflection and discussion periods to build a framework for innovation and change. B.A. David Company founder David Bendekovic, library innovators, and thought leaders, including LJ Librarians of the Year and Movers and Shakers provide insights, best practices and leadership tools to help librarians in all stages of their career tap into personal leadership qualities to transform their career, library and community.
Attendees walk away with the framework and tools needed to turn ideas into actions.
