Sponsored by the Leadership and Management Section

Middle managers know that leading from the middle can be a tricky business. The experienced professionals leading this symposium will equip you to lead from where you are, whether or not you aspire to a director position. You will receive practical guidance on addressing diversity and inclusion, applying a model for transforming difficult relationships, creating a strategic plan, securing and managing external funding, managing a budget, creating compelling communications, and leading without authority or “managing up.” You will evaluate and interpret your leadership orientations and will practice strategies and techniques for guiding library staff through times of transition and change. The symposium is for middle managers or aspiring middle manager librarians and librarians in any supervisory role.  Lunch roundtables on speaker topics and other management issues of interest are included. #MLADiversity

  • facilitated discussions led by experts who will share their knowledge and experience as middle management professionals
  • interactive exercises and worksheets for participants to engage with case scenarios, evaluate their leadership orientations, and draft goals based on symposium content
  • lunch roundtables with topics relevant to middle managers

  • Joan Gallos, Professor of Leadership Emerita, Wheelock College, Boston, MA
