Inspirational Leadership with DeEtta Jones Young

Inspirational Leadership: A Practical Approach During Shifting Times is a one-day session designed for library leaders who are challenged to support and sustain staff through changing environmental realities. High customer expectations, changing technological demands and shifting resource allocations require new energy and new commitment from our staffs. As leaders your challenge is to find ways to tap the best within your 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.

Learning Outcomes: After this session participants will:
  • Understand positive organizational development as a leadership framework
  • Be able to recognize their own and others abilities to influence and appropriately use power
  • Identify what motivates people and explore options for working more effectively with staff
  • Practice using a problem solving tool and coaching tool
  • Have a better understanding of the role of manager as organizational change facilitator
