Professional development opportunity: LLEAD: Library Leaders Excellence and Development

I recently went for lunch with Ken Haycock, and he let me know about this interesting leadership development opportunity in the new year:

LLEAD: Library Leadership Excellence and Development

The ultimate vision of this program is a library sector with the leadership capacity to best serve and advance the quality of life for the people who live and work in their communities.

To realize this vision, the program will focus on its goal of equipping library leaders with the approaches, processes and competencies demanded in senior leadership roles.

LLEAD participants are expected to practice and improve skills that are directly transferable to the library environment in organizational leadership, teamwork, finance, human resources management, and advocacy.  At the end of the year-long program, successful LLEAD participants will demonstrate the resilience, self-awareness and abilities to influence strategic outcomes at the organizational and community level.
