Class Description: Being a supervisor is a complex job with a lot of responsibilities. A lack of clear, effective communication can hinder the relationship between a library leader and their employees, and can be costly in terms of productivity, team morale, and service to patrons.

It is critical for supervisors to be able to communicate effectively with all team members. This workshop will teach you how to be relatable, respectable, dependable, and communicative. As a result, you will be able to have a clear direction, meet your employees’ needs, handle difficult conversations with ease, and boost your assertiveness as a boss.

Important: This workshop is designed to be as engaging and interactive as an in-person workshop and includes individual and group activities, discussion, and hands-on practice, and participants should plan to have a microphone enabled and cameras on to participate. Because of the interactivity of the training, we ask that you plan to be fully present during the entire workshop and that you join individually on your own device though others from your library may also be registered. This enables you to be able to get the most out of the workshop and respects all participants’ time and efforts. Thank you!
