Beyond Glitz and Glitter: Great Brands Start from Within [$] Preconference/Institute Las Vegas Convention Center
N252
Description :

The draw of a sparkling new brand often starts with a glitzy new logo or fun new colors, but great brands start from within. Learn ways to tap into the DNA of your organization to develop a brand that reflects your library’s culture and community. Hear how three libraries – all in different phases of their brand’s lifecycle – moved beyond the glitz and glitter to create brands that resonate with staff and customers alike. Find examples for staff engagement and share your creative ideas about branding for the 21st century library in this workshop-style preconference.

Creating a Collaborative Culture [$] Preconference/Institute Las Vegas Convention Center
N256
Description :

Rewards or threats. Our brains look for them five times a second. That's the root of many difficult workplace situations. Come learn the transformative power of reframing failure, the true meaning of "yes and" and the kinds of listening that changes lives. In this session, we'll use applied improvisation to go from passive-aggressive to assertive, from blame to "I'm game." Instead of hearing, "It's not my job!", you'll start hearing, "How do we do it?"
