Organizational Storytelling for Librarians: Using Stories for Effective Leadership
Marek, Kate
ALA Editions
Just as literature can be used for learning, the power of storytelling can be very effective when applied to leadership and management. Library expert and author Marek shows readers how they can use storytelling to communicate vision and values with: (1) A primer on how to develop storytelling skills; (2) Tips on how to use narratives to navigate change and build community; and (3) Strategies for using a library's buildings and history to communicate shared goals. Applying solid management principles to a library setting, Marek provides the tools and explains the process of leading and managing through organizational storytelling.
