Are you a leader facing large or small changes at your library? Experienced leaders from academic and public libraries will discuss strategies for considering the human factors of initiating and managing change. This interactive program will provide resources to navigate and understand the emotional dynamics of change, methods for communicating your change vision effectively, and assessment tools for measuring outcomes. Speakers will provide examples of successes and challenges from actual organizational changes. The second half of the program will be interactive and audience participation will be encouraged.
