Be a Good Boss

I'm on my way to the 2010 PLA National Conference in Portland, OR on Monday. In addition to helping my husband in the Evanced Solutions' booth #2133 (they're releasing their latest product BranchAnywhere, an automated library materials vending solution), I will also be presenting "Be a Good Boss: One Year to Success" on Friday, 3/26 (8:30 a.m.) with my friend and colleague Cathy Hakala-Ausperk.

Cathy and I are looking forward to the presentation and hope to leave everyone enthusiastic about being a better boss.

Click here for a copy of our presentation. We'd also like to share the Table of Contents and a Sample Workbook Outline from Cathy's upcoming book "Be a Great Boss" (to be published by ALA Editions in Late Summer / Early Fall 2010).

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at Kim@libraryexperience.com or Cathy at chakalaausperk@gmail.com

    Thank you - have been enjoying your presentation this morning and am really looking forward to Cathy's book. I really appreciate you sharing your wisdom on this topic!

  2. Thanks, Andrea. We really enjoyed it too. We were so pleased with all the great discussion at the end of the session. I was also excited that so many people stopped by my husband's booth afterward to chat about their situations. Keep in touch everyone!

  3. Thanks for a lively and really useful program. I especially appreciate your making your information available. I'm eager to pick up Cathy's book, but hope to put these lessons into action before Fall 2010.

    I was wondering if you could repost the presentation document. I tried clicking on the link and it doesn't go anywhere.
    Thanks from an aspiring Library Boss ;)

  5. Thanks "Aspiring Library Boss." All should be working now.
