Am I Doing This Right? Advice for First Time Managers

Wednesday, June 22 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register for this one-hour webinar.

Becoming a manager is an exciting but also daunting transition. As first-time managers, we are faced with many new opportunities which may seem more like challenges, especially if we are new to the library system, have recently received a promotion, or struggle with imposter syndrome. In this webinar we will discuss strengths-based leadership, how and what to delegate, strategies for self-care, time management tips, and more.
