Building Trust Through Successful Hiring, Training and Mentoring
Libraries build trust by providing high quality services which start with hiring and training the best people. The workshop will be focused on the supervision and management of entry-level and student employees. It will be broken down in three sections: hiring, training, and mentoring. For each section, the presenters will discuss tools, literature on the topic, and personal experience. The audience will participate in discussion and draft materials tailored to their supervisory role.

Mentor/Mentee: A Two Way Street
Everyone is talking about mentoring. Maybe you want a mentor. Maybe you want to be a mentor. Maybe you want to be both a mentor and a mentee. And maybe you are not sure how to start. Wherever you are in a mentor/mentee relationship and whichever part you want to take there are skills you can bring to the table to help ensure success.
