“New Librarians Global Connections” webinar recording now available

For the 4th consecutive year, IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning and IFLA New Professionals Special Interest Group has partnered with the American Library Association (ALA) to present a series of free quarterly webinars on issues of interest to new librarians, library associations and library schools, library-decision makers, and all library workers. This is a great opportunity for membership participation via new worldwide online programming.
The latest session, held April 16 titled “Making the Leap to Library Leadership” is designed both for people who have been called upon to serve a leadership role and those who wish to take on more leadership responsibility. The session outlines essential skills for twenty-first century library leaders and helps participants gain a deeper understanding of their own role, as well as that of their department and library, within the larger picture of their umbrella organization. Topics such as emotional intelligence, professional comportment, understanding organizational culture, change management and intellectual agility are covered in a practical, non-theoretical way. This webinar is designed to be a small taste of what is offered at such institutes so that participants can begin to chart a course for personal leadership development.
