PCI Webinar with Anne Abate and Denise Vallandingham
Having Fun Wherever You Work
Would you like to have more fun at work, but you work in an environment where fun doesn’t happen? Maybe you’re wrong! Having fun at work is a management phenomenon and employee outlook that has spawned much attention in the business world. This new way of looking at things can work in all types of libraries. This interactive webinar will explore ways to bring more fun to your library work environment. The presenters have worked in all types of libraries and will share with you ideas for having fun in every library.
You will be asked to bring your own ideas to share as well. If you would like to illustrate your ideas with a slide or photo, please contact one of the presenters in advance of the webinar (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will make arrangements to include it in the show.
