Leadership Program in Gainesville

There are still a few seats available for this program. Please read the eligible participants section before registering.

2009 Leadership Symposium - Leading In Shifting Environments

Program Description

This one-day session, presented by DeEtta Jones, is designed for library leaders who are challenged to support and sustain staff through changing environmental realities. Today's high customer expectations, changing technological demands, and shifting resource allocations require new energy and new commitment from our staffs. The challenge for library leaders is to find ways to tap the best within their current staff, in spite of challenges facing the organization.

This session will focus on the expectations of leaders for articulating a desired future, communicating and managing performance expectations, supporting and renewing staff engagement levels, and increasing staff focus on service excellence. Participants will be able to apply learning to such areas as organizational change, recruitment and retention, organizational effectiveness, and organizational responses to the internal and external worlds.

Eligible Participants

  • Sunshine State Library Leadership Institute and Sun Seekers Leadership Institute graduates who do not currently hold a position as a library director
  • New library directors who have not graduated from either Institute
  • Library administrators nominated by their library director
