Speaker: Brad Allen, Director, Lawrence Public Library
Speaker: Susan Brown, Director, Chapel Hill Public Library

Two public library directors (and Star Wars geeks) share wisdom gained from their first years on the job. Framed by their favorite movie and their efforts to implement organizational change, their perspectives will resonate across the public library galaxy. Both emerging and experienced leaders will find inspiration from lessons like: How minor characters (like Boba Fett or a jaded employee) have major impact; How to promote staff positivity (the Force) and combat negativity (the Dark Side); How a clear mission is essential to instituting change (and combating the Galactic Empire of the status quo).

I loved this session and would love to share it with my library and my department chair to improve our circulation customer service! Can the PowerPoint be posted and shared please?
