Opportunity 1: Navigating the Terrain of Change WEBINAR

Monday, June 10

2:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. Register

Missed the spring workshops? Here’s an abbreviated, virtual chance to get some of the same excellent content from Dr. Alonzo Kelly! If you attend live, you can also register for a follow-up session on June 11.

Increase your knowledge and ability to:

  • Make authentic inquiry
  • Problem-solve
  • Communicate confidently in challenging situations
  • Foster more collaborative work and learning environments
  • Create a “culture of accountability”
  • Navigate crucial conversations with high stakes, strong emotions, and opposing opinions

Comments from participants at the in-person workshops held this spring:

"This was very thoughtful content that forced me to think deeper. It also made it safe for me to explore an idea and not worry about 'getting it right.'"

"This workshop was FANTASTIC and REVELATORY."

Presenter: Dr. Alonzo Kelly is one of the nation’s leading experts on leadership development and strategic thinking, planning, and acting. He is a popular keynote speaker at events around the country, and is on the National Board of Directors for the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union).

This workshop is a project of the Wisconsin IDEA Team, with support from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction with funds from the Institute for Museum and Library Services. It provides 1.5 contact hours for continuing education requirements for public library directors.

Opportunity 2: Navigating the Terrain of Change: FOLLOW-UP DISCUSSION AND DEBRIEF

Tuesday, June 11

10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. 
2:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. 

NOTE: All participants of the Navigating the Terrain of Change workshops (held on April 25 and May 9) or webinar (held on June 10) are welcome to attend!

It is so exciting to go to a workshop or webinar and get a lot of new ideas and perspectives. We often need a little support to help those ideas take shape. Dr. Alonzo Kelly will be on hand for a follow-up discussion and debrief session to allow you a chance to ask questions about techniques and ideas you have put into practice or address barriers you’ve found to moving forward. Join your fellow librarians for a chance to learn and have fun together in a more informal learning environment.

This offering is a project of the Wisconsin IDEA Team, with support from the WI Department of Public Instruction with funds from the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
