How Everyday Innovation Fuels Success (webinar)

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
ONLINE COURSES

Competency: Library Management

Sub-Category: Organizational Leadership

Innovation is daunting for most organizations. The elusive search for the ONE BIG IDEA to drive growth and increase relevancy puts library organizations on a never-ending journey to predict the future. Yet, the answer lies not in having one big idea.

 

In this interactive and informative webinar, John Moore dispels this belief by explaining how being visionary is not predicting the future, but rather, creating the future by reacting to the present. 


Drawing from his marketing experience at Starbucks Coffee and Whole Foods Market, John will demonstrate how a steady stream of small, everyday ideas result in lasting success for businesses, causes and organizations.

Yet, we hear of an incident occurring in the most unexpected places, including public and academic libraries. Places that we at one time, we believed that our loves ones would be safe. In this interactive and informative webinar, we will look at how the basic knowledge of our facilities can give us an upper hand before and if an incident were to occur.
