Managing the Talent: How to Spot ‘Em, Grow ‘Em, and Move ‘Em Along
HALF DAY; Wednesday, March 12, 9:00 AM–12:30 PM
Libraries are only as good as their people. Learn how to identify talent, find the right fit, bring them on board, monitor and manage their development, and even (gasp) invite them out. This preconference will identify what key behavioral characteristics to be on the lookout for and how to diagnose and support staff to keep them engaged, skilled, and focused on the future.
Presenters: James LaRue, Douglas County (Colo.) Libraries; Sharon Morris, Colorado State Library
Target Audience: Directors, administrators, and managers, as well as HR staff
At the end of this preconference participants will:
- Know what key behavioral characteristics staff should have;
- Be able to diagnose and support staff to keep them engaged, skilled, and focused; and
- Be ready to have the 20-second conversation they’ve avoided for 20 years.
