Be a Great Boss: One Year to Success
Hakala-Ausperk, Catherine
ALA Editions
Moving into a library management position can feel like a daunting and solitary pursuit. Graduate school courses in management are expensive and often hard to find, and even having a mentor at hand is no guarantee of a successful transition. To help library managers improve their skills and acumen, renowned speaker and trainer Hakala-Ausperk presents a handy self-study guide to the dynamic role of being a boss. Organized in 52 modules, designed to cover a year of weekly sessions but easily adaptable for any pace, this workbook: (1) Covers major management topics such as success with stakeholders, staffing, customer service, planning, funding, leadership, and more; (2) Offers an inexpensive alternative to seminars and classroom instruction; (3) Requires an investment of as little as an hour per week, and is completely self-paced; and (4) Includes challenging questions and exercises, and a Web-based template to record learning progress. Suitable for all levels of management, from first-line supervisors to library directors, this book lays out a clear path to learning the essentials of being a great boss. A preface, a bibliography, and an index are included.
