Staff Development

Fostering a Strong Culture of Staff Learning:

As an instructor in Infopeople’s Building an Effective Learning Culture, I had the  opportunity to work with library teams from around the country and an amazing group of mentors, too, as we focused on making learning an ongoing part of a library’s organizational culture. Infopeople has now put some of the content on Niche Academy.

Creating and Using Staff Competencies:

Competencies can help staff identify needed skills, knowledge, and abilities. Ultimately, this can improve the ability to meet the needs of a community.
