Is there one personality type that makes the best library leaders? And what if you donâ€™t happen to be that type? The reality is that almost any personality type can develop into an effective library leader by understanding themselves and the people they work with.
The Library Leadership & Management Association (LLAMA) will present â€œLibrary Leadership and the Myers-Briggs Type IndicatorÂ®â€ from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. Central time on Wednesday, June 5, 2013.
Presenter Jennifer A Keach is Director of Digital Services at James Madison University, Harrisonburg, Virginia. She is a certified Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTIÂ®) facilitator.
â€¢ Identify what their Myers-Briggs Type IndicatorÂ® can tell them about their leadership style
â€¢ Learn about the most common personality types among librarians
â€¢ Learn how to embrace individual leadership strengths when leading others
â€¢ Identify strategies for developing â€œnon-preferenceâ€ skills related to leadership
This webinar will include a very brief refresher/overview of the MBTIÂ® and will focus on applying your MBTIÂ® type. It will not include the completion and interpretation of the MBTIÂ®. To get the most out of the workshop, participants are encouraged to identify their MBTIÂ® type beforehand.
