Creating a Positive Workplace Pt 1
Thursday, June 12, 2014 from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM (MDT)
Everyone wants to work in an organization that's brimming with positive energy. But how can we create and maintain a positive work environment, especially when "Negative Nancy" is in the library? Creating a healthy, positive work environment is the key to employees being happier with their work an in turn more efficient and productive . The challenge is "how" do we do create it?
This interactive and fun two part webinar series examines four hurdles that library leaders face when bringing about positive changes in the library workplace and gives practical ideas for overcoming those hurdles. We'll include case studies from libraries that have successfully created a healthier library for the employees and their patrons, including some of the mistakes that were made along the way!
In Part One, we’ll examine two hurdles in changing the work environment:
- Hurdle #1 - Helping employees understand “why” the change is needed. Remember: People don't resist change, they resist being changed.
- Hurdle #2 -. Overcoming "We've always done it that way". The past is comfortable, even if it isn't healthy or positive. We'll discuss how to implement new expectations and behaviors.
