Top 10 Benefits of Tough Times

Just a quick follow-up to the ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans. For all of you who attended Cathy Hakala-Ausperk's and my Pre-conference, thanks so much for participating. We had a great time and hope you did too (and hopefully you took away a few inspirational ideas while you were at it).

So, here again are the top 10 benefits of tough times:

10. Refresh Your Organization
9. Developing Staff Skills
8. Make New Friends
7. Finally Write That Grant
6. Say It Better (Improve Communications)
5. Kill Mission Creep
4. Enjoy Spring Cleaning (Leaner Facilities)
3. Weed’em and Reap
2. Meet New Needs and Create New Users
1. Adjust Your Attitude

For more details, check out the PLA Blog and P. Sweeney's post.

Here too is the .pdf copy of the presentation as well as the quotes from the beginning of the day. If there's anything else don't hesitate to contact me.

Also, for any of you who attended or missed the panel presentation "Consulting From Both Sides of the Fence: Why Libraries Hire Consultants, and How Consultants Get Jobs ," feel free to contact me with questions.
