Event Details

No need to travel to the Indiana State Library, you can attend from the comfort of your own library!

Employees motivated to deliver top notch service are key to a library’s success. But many in library organizations don’t know how to effectively encourage employee motivation. As a critical management and leadership skill, it’s important to know what motivation is and isn't, what works and what doesn’t. In this session, we’ll explore factors that influence motivation at work and review strategies for supervisors to keep their teams motivated and productive. No matter the size of your library or your role, you will be discover your own motivation and inspire motivation in others.
