The Fox Valley Area Library Consortia (FRVALC) and The National Network of Medical Libraries-Greater Midwest Region (GMR) will be hosting the MLA Webcast entitled:

Librarians Get What You Want : Lessons in Influence from the Business World

Getting your message heard by your Library's leaders is essential for your personal success and for the health and growth of your library.  Few financial and business decision-makers recognize the real value of their libraries or speak "library."  Many librarians lack skills to communicate to leaders in ways they understand.  "Librarians, Get What You Want!" led by a librarian and a business leader, shows you how to combine librarian knowledge with proven business techniques to create influence with the decision-makers in your institution.  You will engage case examples and brainstorm strategies for communicating your value to your bosses.  This webinar will benefit any librarian who seeks greater influence in their organization.


Participants will be able to :

bullet Identify the business skills that librarians need, including
bullet   *  building constructive relationships with decision-makers
bullet   * identifying what is important to decision-makers
bullet   * knowing who should be at the table, who your allies are, and who will put up roadblocks
bullet describe a value proposition
bullet create a unique value proposition
bullet evaluate the effectiveness of projects and proposals
bullet identify strategies for increasing personal resilience



Any Librarians who seek to have greater influence in their organizations.
