September 15, 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Apply for a seat in this one-hour webinar.

A Gallup poll finds that organizations fail to choose the right candidate for leadership positions over 82% of the time. In terms of employee morale, exit interviews and workplace culture surveys show that toxic bosses are the number one reason employees leave or disengage from their organizations. 

For the libraries that recruit better bosses tend to have healthier, happier organizations with more inclusive work environments. This program will help you to avoid common hiring mistakes and make the right hire the first time.

During this informative webinar, participants will learn:

  • How to identify common management/supervisor/ leadership recruitment mistakes
  • How to create “leadership vision statements” that will provide more focus and clarity to support long term strategic planning
  • How to align your “leadership vision statements” with potential candidate interview questions
