    Creating sustainable, novel, and useful change is important as technology and innovation drive libraries forward. However, change can create stress and uncertainty that can inhibit your efforts. Leaders can be the force that transforms this natural trajectory by implementing the strategic guidance and motivation that are necessary for new initiatives to succeed. By developing a strong vision and creating buy-in from the team, you can successfully manage the change processes that are critical to your success. This workshop also includes an interactive role-play experience that enhances perspective-taking and improves understanding of key obstacles to change.

    Workshop highlights: 
    • Developing a strong vision
