It is not easy being the boss - one day you're a professional librarian
working in a technical services department and the next day you are
promoted to manager and your world changes. Great managers may be born
but the overwhelming majority are made into leaders through training and
positive work experiences. Managers need to understand the people they
supervise and treat them as their most important customers, building
relationships that are beneficial to both the manager and the employee.
Managers must help all workers to succeed and that the best way to
accomplish this is through positive communication and employee

Taught by William Sannwald, this one-day workshop provides you with the
skills and tools required to go from being a technical services expert to
a supervisor. It explores modern management techniques ranging from
communication to understanding organizational culture in order to ease the
transition from a professional to a manager of professionals. It also
examines what motivates people at different levels, as well as why one
type of motivation might not fit all types of workers. This workshop is
participatory with discussion, role-play, exercises, and videos.
