Space to Define Purpose: Strategies for Creating Mission, Vision, and Values with Your Team

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
While many libraries develop a strategic plan and define Mission, Vision, and Values at the administrative level, how do you accomplish this at a smaller, departmental level? Join us as we define and differentiate between Mission, Vision, and Values, and examine how developing each of these can benefit high-performing teams. The process and the final products can help us understand our purpose, the beliefs that guide our professional behaviors, and how we envision our futures. Practice-based information will be provided that can be used to lead your team through the highly collaborative process of creating your own unique Mission, Vision, and Values. We will discuss strategies for honoring the already existing core values of your larger organization, approaches for creating space for all team members to participate, and techniques for including diverse learning styles and communication preferences.
