Budget and Resource Management
Tuesday, December 9, 2014 @ 10:30 a.m. from Your Desktop

It’s that time of year again! It is the time that everyone searches to find the best toys for their loved one, friend, or even themselves.

Tuesday, January 6, 2015 @ 10:30 a.m. from Your Desktop
Many times when budgets get tight, patron use increases while resources become more limited. Keeping your staff happy and motivated can become increasingly more difficult. However, the successful manager knows how to keep his or her employees motivated to bring their best to the job every day. A thorough understanding of what drives human beings to do their best (hint—it’s seldom money!) is the key to maintaining a high level of service in the toughest of times.

Thursday, January 15, 2015 @ 2:00 p.m. from Your Desktop
For many of us, goal setting is a continuous process of success and failure, celebration and disappointment.

12+ WAYS TO HELP YOUR NEW EMPLOYEES FEEL WELCOME AND INCLUDED
Thursday, January 22, 2015 @ 2:00 p.m. from Your Desktop
Staff are the most important resource for achieving the library’s mission and goals. Supervisors spend valuable time to recruit, interview, and hire the right person at the right time. And yet often, the new employee has no time to get comfortable in their new environment before being given a list of tasks and projects to complete. As a result, it may take longer than necessary for the new employee to feel truly at home in their new job.
The Five Practices of Leadership
Tuesday, January 27, 2015 @ 2:00 p.m. from Your Desktop
Are leaders born or bred? Both! And everyone can be a leader.
We all start with innate talents and abilities. We also have the chance to hone and develop our skills over time. In the end, leadership is an ongoing practice, and our successes are determined by the people that we lead.
