Dear colleagues,

Are you interested in developing your career, tackling challenging situations and achieving your goals? Would you like to find out how participation in the work of IFLA can help you to expand your career and professional development opportunities?

The IFLA Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning Section and the IFLA Management and Marketing Section invite you to this year’s Online Coaching Week 17-21 August, as part of the IFLA Coaching Initiative.

The coaching sessions, previously planned as face-to-face sessions at the IFLA WLIC in Dublin, which had to be cancelled, are now available for booking as one hour online coaching sessions. Online booking with an individual coach within your time zone is available at:

Coaching is currently available in the following languages: English, Spanish, German and Swedish. The coaches are based in various countries and different time zones. You can choose your preferences for a language and time slot that suits you best.

After booking, please wait until the coach contacts you to discuss which online platform (Zoom, WebEx, skype…) you prefer and to explore alternative time slots. In addition, you can also ask the coach about the format of the coaching.

We look forward to your participation!

Kindest regards,

The IFLA Coaching Initiative work group: Ewa Stenberg (convenor), Almuth Gastinger, Vera Keown, Ulrike Lang, Carmen Lei, Barbara Schleihagen
