On National Library Workers Day, we’d like to encourage those working in Wyoming libraries to take advantage of a wonderful professional development opportunity. The Wyoming Library Leadership Institute is accepting applications — but hurry! The deadline is nearing on April 15 so APPLY NOW. There is no charge for participants to attend, and accommodations and meals are provided.
The main focus this year is “Teamwork and Leadership.” Participants will learn more about their own leadership potential and style and will develop valuable skills.
Leadership matters at every level of an organization, and WLLI recognizes that. It welcomes library workers from all positions at every stage of their careers — not just those who are managers or aspiring managers. You could be new in the field, or you could have an established career. You could work in a school, academic, special, or public library. The Wyoming Library Leadership Institute (WLLI) is the place for you.
[su_quote]I came out of the Leadership Institute with better self-knowledge and better ideas on how I could be a leader right where I am now. Maybe the best part was the networking and the friendships I made. It was an amazing experience, and I’d recommend it to anyone.[/su_quote]
