When you started your library career did you expect to be a manager? I didn’t and I am sure I am not alone in that. Many of us find ourselves in management, often with little or no preparation. It is not always easy to find support in our organizations or time to improve our management skills. Here is your chance to network with other library managers and share lessons learned, best practices, and questions. This session is open to prospective, new, and experienced managers of all types of libraries. Discussion topics will include performance management, communication, decision making, managing up, staff development, leadership and more.
