WebJunction Webinar: Training New Supervisors for Success: Don't Start from Scratch
When: May 4, 2021 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

This webinar, hosted in collaboration with ALA's Learning Round Table, presents ready-made resources to help implement supervisor training at your library.

New supervisors need timely training as they step into their new role. Not only do they need to learn how to manage people effectively, they need to learn specific procedures particular to their library. Trainers know that it takes a lot of time, up to a year, to develop this kind of training. What if there were some existing training that one could build upon without starting from scratch? There is!

The Learning Round Table of ALA developed three self-guided Supervisor Success modules—Performance Management, Managing Conflict, and Encouraging Motivation in the Workplace (available on WebJunction). Join us as we explore how the Indianapolis Public Library Training and HR staff used this ready-made self-paced learning, added some library-specific context and group discussions, and created a successful new learning process for their managers. Presenters will share their lessons learned to help you implement this kind of supervisor training at your library.

Are you prioritizing your own needs in your workday? Ever-increasing and evolving demands for library services, heavy workloads, and multiple requests from the public can create an environment for staff burnout. While some stressors are unavoidable, prolonged exposure to them can cause detachment, pessimism, and a loss of enjoyment in the library profession. Join us to explore the physical, behavioral and emotional barriers that lead to burnout, as well as methods to mitigate workplace stressors. We'll look at specific stress-relieving techniques to introduce into your daily activities, and explore ways to bring self-care strategies to all staff in your organization.
