So You Think You Want to Be a Manager: What the Job Description Won’t Tell You
Competency: Library Management Competencies
Sub-Category: Personnel Management
Not everyone wants to become a manager, but for those who think they do, it’s important to consider “Why?” Is it better pay, greater power, or more prestige?
During this webinar, we will review expectations that people often have about managerial positions and how those expectations compare to reality. We will discuss the skills and abilities you need to be an effective manager and how you can adjust expectations in order to have a successful transition to management instead of a rude awakening.
Participants will learn:
- Identify their own motivations for wanting to become a manager
- Compare their expectations to real-life managerial scenarios
- Learn which skills, abilities and qualities will help them become an effective and successful manager
