Librarians, Get What You Want!

Lessons in Influence from the Business World

January 25, 2018, 1:00pm–2:30pm, central time

Getting your message heard by your library’s leaders is essential for your personal success and for the health and growth of your library. Few financial and business decision-makers recognize the real value of their libraries or speak “library.” Many librarians lack skills to communicate to leaders in ways they understand. “Librarians, Get What You Want!,” led by a librarian and a business leader, shows you how to combine librarian knowledge with proven business techniques to create influence with the decision-makers in your institution. You will engage case examples and brainstorm strategies for communicating your value to your bosses. This webinar will benefit any librarian who seeks greater influence in their organization.
