Organizations say it all the time: “People are our most valuable asset.” When times are good and budgets secure, cutting-edge libraries mentor promising staff to grow into the leaders of tomorrow. However, when times are tough, employees must take charge of their own professional development to build the skills they need today and in the future.
During this candid conversation, Jay Turner will share insights and anecdotes from his non-traditional career about how taking charge of your professional development can open doors for you and your library. Walk away from this session with practical tips on creating and implementing your personal professional development plan. Attendees will learn how to:
- Align professional development needs with organizational goals
- Leverage the 70/20/10 model to maximize formal and informal learning opportunities
- Create e-portfolios to showcase workplace learning
The free, 45-minute webinar will be followed by a live Q&A session. Want to grow in your career? Register for the webinar to find out how.
