MLA Webinar: Inclusive Team-Based Leadership: A Practical Approach to Leading Healthy Teams

  • June 13, 2023
  • 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
  • MLA Zoom


Registration is closed

Do you want to build teams that respect the individuality and identity of all members? Inclusive team-based leadership can help you develop and lead teams that communicate and collaborate respectfully and effectively and get work done!

Inclusive team-based leadership is a leadership approach that recognizes and empowers all members of a team. It respects self-identities and diversity and promotes consensus-building, positive communication, and cultural humility. It sees diversity and differences as a source of energy and vitality. By honoring differences, you can help everyone in a team to contribute fully and effectively.

Aidy Weeks will draw on her experience as a library director and leader to help you develop an understanding of this new leadership approach and acquire skills you can use to build a team or rebuild a dysfunctional team. She’ll use a case study that demonstrates how teams can build a community agreement and show participants how to implement this with their teams.

You’ll leave the session with an understanding of inclusive team-based leadership and its power, an awareness of the specific practices needed to lead an inclusive team, and being able to develop and implement the community agreement based on shared values that is the heart of building or rebuilding a healthy team.
