Description

Moving into a library management position can feel like a daunting and solitary pursuit. Graduate school courses in management are expensive and often hard to find, and even having a mentor at hand is no guarantee of a successful transition. To help library managers improve their skills and acumen, renowned speaker and trainer Hakala-Ausperk presents a handy self-study guide to the dynamic role of being a boss. Organized in 52 modules, designed to cover a year of weekly sessions but easily adaptable for any pace, this workbook

  • Covers major management topics such as success with stakeholders, staffing, customer service, planning, funding, leadership, and more
  • Offers an inexpensive alternative to seminars and classroom instruction
  • Requires an investment of as little as an hour per week, and is completely self-paced
  • Includes challenging questions and exercises, and a Web-based template to record learning progress

Suitable for all levels of management, from first-line supervisors to library directors, this book lays out a clear path to learning the essentials of being a great boss.
