Please forward this to anyone who may have an interest in this workshop. The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), a division of the American Library Association, is pleased to offer A Supervisor's Academy: Essentials of Supervision for the Professional Librarian. August 25, 2003 from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Radisson Hotel & Suites Chicago 160 East Huron Chicago, IL 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 empowerment. 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. Advance registration fees are $185 for ALCTS members; $210 for ALA members; $235 for non-members; and $99 for full-time students. Advance registration ends August 11th.
