Leadership Development: What the research tells us
with Anne Marie Madziak – 1 hour Web Conference

Much has been made in recent years of the leadership deficit facing libraries and the need to build the profession's capacity to develop strong library leaders. While most of us are at least vaguely aware of the demographics of the profession and the exodus of librarians due to retirement, we have done very little to groom the next generation of library leaders. While the Canadian Library Association advocates a coordinated leadership strategy, we also need to address leadership locally in our libraries. This session draws on research that illuminates the conditions that help people reach their leadership potential.

Anne Marie Madziak is a library development consultant with Southern Ontario Library Service.
