Managing and Leading in a Time of Reduced Resources: METRO Workshop, New York, NY

It’s no secret that the current economic crisis has affected and continues to affect libraries dramatically. Reduced resources and the need to transform libraries in an increasingly digital world mean that we also need to change our approaches to managing and leading in libraries.

On Thursday, July 22nd, organization development consultant Maureen Sullivan will talk us through some challenges, opportunities, effective practices, and useful strategies for the rapidly changing world of library work. Managing and Leading in a Time of Reduced Resources will take place at METRO from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Students will walk away from this workshop with a better understanding of how to improve their managerial leadership practice and how to apply this leadership in the “new normal” context.

This workshop will take place at METRO: 57 East 11th Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10003.

Registration fees: $75 members; $75 myMETRO; $100 non-members.
