Are you looking for a program to develop your professional leadership skills? Consider "Leading Through Collaboration," developed by the American Association of School Librarians, a division of the American Library Association, and being offered by the Missouri Association of School Librarians.
AASL's Leadership Institute "Leading Through Collaboration" ties into two of the basic ideas that underlie the vision of school library programs: collaboration and leadership. Each is integral to every aspect of the school library program and every component of the school librarian's role.
The instructor will guide you through this one-day workshop that provides you with an opportunity to increase your understanding of the components of leadership, identify your own leadership skills and professional priorities, and apply leadership strategies to the challenges we face in our schools and our profession. You will have time and opportunities to connect with other school library media professionals and establish networks to work together to effect change.
Topics addressed in the institute include:
- Qualities of leadership
- Self-awareness of personal characteristics
- Perceptions of the profession
- Challenges facing the profession
- Leadership strategies to employ
- Action plan for leadership
