  • Carterette Webinar - Keeping Our Sanity During Change

    August 4, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    The Georgia Library Association Carterette Webinar Series presents
    Keeping Our Sanity During Change

    Discover your power in the organization, and where you do and do not have control. Learn about giving feedback to your supervisor to influence a change process and how you can get better results. Consider how people in organizations typically respond to change, how you respond to change, and how this affects the overall library. Think about expectations around the terms "transparency" and "feedback" when applied to change. Apply this new knowledge to help change interpersonal dynamics within your organization.
