Is your Library Losing its Best people?

“…right now most libraries are letting some truly invaluable people slip right through the cracks.”

” Ask yourself what your library is doing to value your top staff (all of them, not just the traditional, stereotypical functionaries), to create a collaborative environment (especially between generations and between various job roles), and to let your employees color outside the lines a little in order to draw the big picture.”

To me, that’s letting go of that micro-management control some librarians use and letting librarians dream, innovate and plan without red tape, endless meetings and barriers disguised as “baby steps.”
