People – Difficult or Different?
Nov 6 @ 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Register here

Why are some clients or co-workers so frustrating to work with?
Or more importantly, why would anyone think of YOU as a difficult person?
 
For example, isn’t it irritating when the person across the desk or on the phone can’t seem to ever make a decision… or makes a snap decision only to change it a day later?

In this highly interactive and engaging presentation, you will discover why “different” does not have to mean “difficult.” Then you will learn the magic of making slight adjustments in your awareness and behavior that will have a significant impact on your ability to “click” with customers and co-workers.

You will laugh as you identify your behavior style, as well as those with whom you work.  While you laugh, you will also learn that people are different and that “intent” doesn’t always equal “impact.” In short, you will realize how to make work… less work!

The Accidental Facilities Manager
Nov 10 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Register here

The care of library buildings, from historic to new, demands greater attention – now more than ever.

With occupant health and safety in mind, common issues, such as cleaning, plumbing, or HVAC systems, take on new urgency. Many library directors and staff become facilities managers by default, with no formal training.

This webinar offers a primer on building systems and issues, along with tools for preventive maintenance, energy assessments, optimizing ventilation and filtration, and more.

Presenters share what they learned the hard way, in large and small libraries, so that you can be more prepared and self-assured.
