ARL Library Management Skills II: the Organization is coming to Penn State

Penn State is excited to announce that the ARL Library Management Skills II: the Organization is coming to State College, PA, and they invite you to join them for this unique and valuable leadership development experience.

The Management Skills Institute II: The Organization, offered by the ARL Academy in partnership with DeEtta Jones and Associates, and co-hosted by the Pennsylvania State University Libraries, will take place December 4-6, 2018, in the Pattee and Paterno Library. The three-day workshop is for supervisors, department heads, coordinators, team and project leaders, and change agents. This learning experience is designed using Peter Senge's renowned Learning Organization as the framework and participants will be introduced to each of the five disciplines. Participants will learn through case studies, personal reflection, practical application tools, and group discussions.

Workshop Objectives

Participants will:

  •  Have a sophisticated understanding of organizational learning and how the associated practices positively impact inclusion, organizational health, positioning, and growth.
  • Practice engaging colleagues in processes that clarify vision and create momentum.
  • Have practical tools for engaging change in their organizations.
  • Have tools for differently approaching long-standing problems.
  • Increase empathy related to different roles in the organization, and act as a bridge across stakeholder groups.
