More Than #MotivationMonday: Motivating Your Team Any Day of the Week

Thursday, August 17, 2017 / 12:00 pm Pacific / 1 hour

Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/motivating-your-team.html

Employees motivated to deliver top notch service are key to a library’s success. But many in library organizations don’t know how to effectively instigate employee motivation. As a critical management and leadership skill, it’s important to know what motivation is and isn't, what works and what doesn’t. In this session, we’ll explore factors that influence motivation at work and review strategies for supervisors to keep their teams motivated and productive. No matter the size of your library or your role, you will be inspired to find your own motivation and be able to catalyze others!

Presented by: Rachel G. Rubin, MLIS, PhD, Director, Bexley (OH) Public Library, soon to be Director of Library and Information Services, Capital University (OH)

IFLA’s Global Vision: An Interactive Discussion

Thursday, August 24, 2017  / 12:00 pm Pacific / 1 hour

Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/global-vision-an-interactive-discussion.html

Earlier this year, the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) launched a series of Global Vision<https://globalvision.ifla.org/> discussions to bring together thousands of librarians around the world, through face-to-face and online interactive participation, to explore how a connected library field can meet the challenges of the future. IFLA believes that the challenges facing the library field from ever-increasing globalization can only be met and overcome by an inclusive, global response from a united library field. By joining us for this webinar, you can participate in this global discussion to identify future challenges and opportunities facing the library field and help to prioritize actions that a united and connected library field can take.

The Association for Rural and Small Libraries<http://arsl.info/>, in collaboration with WebJunction, invites rural and small libraries to join this highly interactive webinar discussion to voice your opinions and contribute to shaping a unique and comprehensive IFLA Global Vision. In preparation, you may want to reflect on your work in the library field: Why do you think your work is important? How do you see your work in the future? You may also refer to IFLA’s Trend Report<https://trends.ifla.org/> as well as other relevant publications about libraries and the trends and developments affecting them.

Together we build literate, informed and participative societies. Together we create the future. Join us!

Facilitated by: Jennifer Pearson, ARSL board member, IFLA Global Vision North American regional discussion representative, and director Marshall County Memorial Library (TN)
