According to Peter Drucker, “management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.” Over the last 10-15 years, there has been a great deal more focus on building leadership skills while downplaying management skills.

To me, they are complementary skills that come together to create a successful organization. I think this graphic sums it up nicely, http://www.championsforgrowth.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Leadership-AND-Management.jpg.

 Here are some questions we may address on Thursday, February 19:

  •  What traits did your best managers share? 
  •  What characteristic should every leader possess? 
  •  What mistakes do you commonly see leaders make? 
  •  Do you have resources that you would suggest for people to improve their management or leadership skills? 
  •  What are you doing to ensure that you continue to grow and develop as a leader? 
  •  What is the best advice you’ve gotten about building management skills? 
  •  Where do you see leaders in your organization? 
  •  Is leadership or management different in hospital or academic libraries? 
  •  How have you found opportunities to grow you skills in management and leadership? 
  •  If you’ve done a leadership program, what was the most important takeaway? 
  •  How have you seen line librarians move into management or leadership positions in flat organizations?
